Excellent job!

How did you reproduce the 'Parachute Pickup Service' lettering?

Thank you for the comments!

Ed-Just built the chassis out of the box...nothing special.

Tony-Found the lettering online (there is a Yuku forum for 66 Batmobile)-printed on my printer, cut out each word and applied with white glue-I cut the words where the van doors open and stuck them all on...covered with Future.
Here's the screen cap that got me started...

Here's the artwork - I can't recall who made this...wasn't me!

Thanks for that link Tony!

On that site, also discovered a nice side shot of Chief O'Hara's squad car with 'Gotham City Police' on the door, I'll print that out and build a period police car to go with the batmobile.

Since you liked the pictures and stories -  Here's the only shot of one I have in my stalled project file. It's the Jimmy Flintstone resin piece. I spent the summer of 1977 delivering pizzas. This was in Holmdel, NJ and back when Bruce Springsteen lived on Telegraph Hill Road in Holmdel.  YES! I did deliver pizzas to his house.  NO!  I never got to meet him.  One of the delivery guys had this old A100 van. He had rebuilt the slant six and riveted panels over all the lower body rust. And then he brush painted the silver and black two tone you see here. Yes, we delivery guys helped him between deliveries!  I got as far as painting the body. I do have to build this one someday.
