De-militarized Batmobile

Recommended Posts

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

Very Cool!

It looks like a Lambo concept car in that color and still kind of works as a Batmobile. More of a Saturday morning cartoon show Batmobile but it still works.

As is said in the Film and Photography industries, it kicks light well.

thanks guys

It was just a fun little side project to distract myself from the ever ongoing SD build which I have now returned to yet again. Mind you, the rear wing installation is not fun and very confusing. The instructions are not clear at all regarding how they go in.

thanks very much everyone for the kind posts. I won't lie, I actually really like it. It more or less looks like the idea I had right from the start. I am also in love with that hue of blue (Mr Color - GX-204)

That was my first thought as well - kind of an "adult" version of the Superfriends color scheme.

Awesome job on this, very clean and well done!

Makes me think - How cool would this be as a dune buggy version?

Any takers?
