Transformer custom time

Hello all, yes I have been alive, and been enjoying the holiday fairly decently, though also kinda looking forward to going back to school. Onward with progress and all that crap.

As to what I've been up to recently, I got myself the TF Movie Rescue Ratchet figure some weeks back, and well, I like him...

Looks pretty good eh? There's one problem:

His face is about as ugly as a Lunch Lady's. Since my main displayed TFs these days are Binaltechs (that are 1:24 scale), I didn't want this Ratchet to go to waste, as he's fairly close in scale to them. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and attempt a custom!!11one

For the uninitiated, my intention was to make a 'G1' styled Ratchet head for this body. As a reference, I used this:

And used a spare Binaltech Prowl head. After much friggin sanding and fucking around with paints that ran like diahorrea, I finally ended up with this:

It's kinda funny that it took me about a day to paint Rumble, an ENTIRE CAR to blue, but took me more than 2 days fumbling around to paint Ratchet's single HEAD. I'm so retarded, but at least I'm satisfied.
