    Here's something inspired by the noble healthcare profession which the world is seeing a lot more of now - a mobile Medical Cargo Crate which can be back carried and can be used to bring a variety of medical gear and equipment around!

    ===

    Gotta pack up all the med kits - it's time to roll out!

    It's gonna be heavy, but we'll need all the supplies we've got.

    Sometimes, just ain't got time to unload whilst on the move, just flip things out...

    and it's a mobile medical work station on the go!

    Ratchet's blaster also can flip to the front for some defense in case things get hairy

    We've arrived ... time to unload ...

    Was a fun model to have put together, and in the photos attached here, various earlier models were also used, such as:

    Had intended for this to be a premium model, but decided that release it publicity for all - the files can be found here - https://www.patreon.com/posts/35704990

    This come with a note of maybe a couple of things you can do in return - have fun 3d printing a bunch of these, stay home, stay safe. Contribute to a local medical fund or cause if there is one near you.

    And also most importantly - a massive thank you to all the medical staff and frontliners out there - the world salutes you!

    I'd buy if I was ever able to find Ratchet. Now I'm just sad. Nice work though!

    Yeah, got quite lucky to have found Ratchet locally. Perhaps there will be some popping up near you, else there's always customizing? :) 


    Thank you all! Have a few more bits for this build actually - just getting a little slowed down with the recent lockdown scenario :/

    Well, here's the next model in the lineup of medical supplies for Ratchet and his fellow medical bots - presenting the tracked medical bed! This was inspired by the same as seen in the IDW comics.



    Sized to be able to hold a deluxe figure, this Medical Bed allows bots to be safely and comfortably transported on this tracked bed in and out of the Medical Bay where they can receive medical care.

    5mm ports around the bed itself lets accessories (or even weapons) to be added easily.

    To allow the entire contraption to rolls around more easily, there are 4 optional wheels which can be inserted into the treads.

    Nearer the bottom of the body, there are two more 5mm ports facing towards the front and back. Again, more accessories could be added here, or if one has it, a 5mm rubber hose which can allow multiple of these tracked med beds to be connected in a convoy fashion.

    Now that this is done - time to move on to getting the rest of the Med Bay done up ... :p

    When we first shared the Medical Cargo Crate, it was amazing that so many folks had the same idea the it should be able to turn into a trailer for Ratchet!

    But well, there were larger plans then just to have just the crate with wheels. So, together with the Tracked Medical Bed, here are two more accessories in the form of a Med Scanner and Med Robot!

    ===

    Firstup, here's the Med Scanner, which was inspired by something which made a brief appearance in the IDW comics:

    [​IMG]

    and also a robotic assistant Medical Team, transforming out from the crate it comes in:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The tip of the robot's arm also has a 5mm port so accessories can be pedded on to it:

    [​IMG]



    ==

    Now for the best part, together with the last two portions of this set, they all go together to form a trailer for Ratchet!

    [​IMG]

    The notches on the bottom of all three crates will fit into the raised 5mm ports of the Trailer Bed.

    [​IMG]

    Add on some armaments and Ratchet is all ready to roll out, guns ablazing:

    [​IMG]

    The middle crate also opens up for an expanded trailer look, something like an anti-air setup like this:

    [​IMG]



    And with all the parts arrayed out, an entire Medical Suite can be laid out:

    This was a real fun piece to have put together (notwithstanding all the various trial and errors along the way), so hope y'all enjoy this little showcase of the piece! =)

    Just did a quick video to show how it comes together and some transformation possibilities!

    Not the best video, but eh, here we go:
