Joe Handley Posted February 22, 2022 Share Posted February 22, 2022 I’m planning on finally building a my Revell Futura and Polar Lights Barris Batmobiles, starting with the pre painted Polar Lights snap kit with the figures that will be box stock and a Pro-Touring Futura on Pegasus 23” Hella’s. Here’s most of the Batman related kits plus my second Futura kit. I’m going to start with the Pre Painted Snapper, I just need to brush paint some small parts and glue the wheels to the axles and figures in their seats and it will be done. Next up is the Pro-Touring Futura, it’s going to be slammed over the Pegasus 23” Hella’s. After getting the body pieces put together, I now understand why clamps are your friend with these kits, I had 7 on it waiting for things to cure! All taped together with the rolling stock test fitted. the pile of parts, took this to show a friend what I was dealing with, parts wise. How it sits completely slammed, though I may have to do some hackery to get it a hair higher. The rest of kits will probably be as follows….. One of the other Polar Light Barris Batmobile kits will be done as with more of a Dark Knight bend, like the Burton/Keaton car on the bottom right of the top pic as well as the Animated Series from the 90’s, the Tumbler from the Nolan/Bale movies, then the Snyder/Afflec and the new Reeves/Pattinson movies. It’ll be more of an aggressive, matte back finish and I’m not totally sure what it will get for rolling stock or if I’m going to use the other snapper or one of the glue kits. The other Futura May get built along the lines of the Lamborghini that gets destroyed in the Dark Knight movie, kind of the car he might take to the office or to a “social event” that somebody like Bruce Wayne may have an obligation to attend. The other 2 kits will be done more along the lines of “What If” like the Turbine Car build I have planned as a couple of Kustoms as though the car actually went into production and that are loosely based around what changes Barris made to the car for the TV show, but remove the mods that would identify them as the Batmobile. The Burton/Keaton movie car will likely be built as the Batmobile, I though I had a second one and thought that would be interesting build that as a land speed car if I do, or end up buying a second if I didn’t have another. Finally, I’m not sure if I want to build this from one of the other Barris car kits or get another one of those or another Futura but I was thinking about cutting one down to fit a ‘55-‘57 T-Bird chassis as either a a Lincoln version of the T-Bird and/or a Kustom based on the same concept!
