'66 Batmobile
« on: February 04, 2014, 12:17:13 pm »
DADA-DADA-DADA-DADA-DADA-DADA-DADA-DADA-DAT! BATMAAAAAN!!!


This is the 1/32 scale 1966 Batmobile built from the reissued Polar Lights kit. I built the Aurora kit in my youth but did a little better job of it this time around.
The model is build mostly OOTB with the exception of the three grenade launcher (?) tubes behind the cockpit which I made out of aluminum tubing. I also made the Batphone frrom leftover sprue. All the pinstriping was done by hand.

Sweeeeeet! Built one myself as a kid. Brings back memories. I have the newer PL version in my build pile, but the B9 Robot comes 1st.

Super job, Trek. Reminds me of running in from playing, plopping down in front of the tv, and excitement, as the theme song started to play. Same Bat time, same Bat channel!

Thanks for sharing, very much appreciated.
Sincerely,
Scorp. :)
