This is the Bat-Pod by Moebius Models.

It's a rather simple kit, not much more work than building a fairly detailed engine for a scale automobile. For those who may be interested, here is a link to the build thread

I added a set of cables to the hand grips- brake, throttle, whatever. I mean it's a Bat-Pod so who knows what they are.

The tires have been appropriately weathered with earth tone pastels.

I also put a bit of red wire under the engine shroud. Some of the images I found during my research showed a similar feature so I popped one in there. Additionally, I placed a cable running from under the shroud, along the frame and attaching to the rear wheel. Again, based on research.

This is easily one of the most fragile kits I've ever built. Every time I pick it up I feel like I'm cradling a soap bubble in my finger tips.

As always, thanks for taking the time look and please always feel free to comment.

Nice detail touches. I've built this kit and enjoyed adding detail. I also liked playing around with the ride height. Did you notice that it's adjustable?

Thanks for the compliment.  I had notice that the rear trailing arm did have a hex stud and socket assembly. I actually almost assembled it in a technically incorrect higher setting but I noticed that it was keyed to insert in only one position. So I see how one could adjust the rear axle height but I don't recall any obvious means of adjusting the front assembly.

I did follow the links to the pics and they are interesting but I still like it in the standard configuration.

Thanks for sharing the information, I probably would nor have realized that such a thing was an option.

Looks great David, I liked when Ann Hathaway rode it as Catwomen!

Thanks Carl! 

I agree, Ann Hathaway looked great on the Bat-Pod but in my opinion, Eartha Kitt was the best Catwoman. She had the had the right kind of Cool.
