De-militarized Batmobile
« on: October 24, 2020, 12:37:15 am »
Hey everyone


Here's my latest side project - the BM V SM Batmobile - without the guns and in a more fun paint scheme.

I bought this a few years ago with this idea in mind to turn it into something less sinister and more interesting. I was going to do it in red and black, but I felt the metallic blue was better. I've always liked the basic shape of the Batmobile but prefer it without all the fenders and guns - and the roof.

Anyways, it was just a fun build - except for the rear wing: that was a nightmare to get on. Oh, and ET cement ran right down the inside of the windscreen as I was putting it in, so I had to sandpaper it all out and then get is clear again - which I think I did a pretty good job of doing













Excuse the dust that managed to get on the surface right before I photographed it.
Anyway, that's it but as always, thanks for looking
Si

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

You obviously need a project like this to get your eyes used to the Real World as it is from time to time, I guess, rather than as the Land of the Giants. ;) :thumbsup:
