    Next in my updated Gobots customs, it's the friendly robot ambulance Rest-Q! I stripped the paint apps from Ratchet, gave him some 3rd party gap filler panels, swapped his upper legs with those from a Deseeus Army Drone (who got SG Ratchet's legs), and gave him a new head and chest deco using a combination of 3D printed and scratch built parts. Paints are a combination of Testors, Tamiya, and Apple Barrel colors.

    Slick and a great use of a toy that was in demand but is now surplus to requirements.

    Turning the chest around is such a crazy idea! I love it! Do you remember which gap fillers did you use? Also, was the chest cross 3D printed as well? I wanna steal this idea, bar the new head.

    Thanks, guys!

    A fun prospect, but I couldn't skip one of the original Gobots in my collection!

    This was the TF Safari "Ratchet Studio ROS-009" set. The cross was scratch built - flat styrene cut and rounded off, then glued to a 5mm peg so it could plug into Ratchet's port (just in case I needed to redo it, which I did after deciding my first attempt was too small).
