Moebius Models 1/25 Dawn of Justice Batmobile
« on: May 05, 2017, 03:56:07 pm »
And here she is.

I got the model fully completed and ready to be displayed today as everything I needed to finish her off arrived at the same time today so that made me a happy bunny.

Apart from breaking the original canopy/windshield I did'nt encounter any major problems during the build (more on that later). The photoetch set from Green Strawberry added some much needed detail apart from the rubbish hinges. I just left the new canopy in one piece so it can be lifted on/off to show the interior.

Enough of me prattling on so here we go with some pics of the completed model.












A nice wee kit to put together and although the rear spoilers/wings were a total pain we got there in the end and the result speaks for itself.

I am well chuffed with my first ever car model (don't really count the Bladerunner Spinner as it flies) and on the look out for more Batmobiles to add to the collection.

I hope you like her and as is my tradition I will close this build off with the usual wee video.

Thanks for coming along with me on this latest journey.

Wow really nice man, great job! I think you made the right choice with having the top removable rather than hinged. It would probably end up breaking over time anyway . This way you can see the interior much better. Besides if I remember correctly didn't  superman dear the roof of anyway?  :)

I tried to post a reply earlier on my phone but it kept timing out on me. All cool
Wow - I have to say, it's a very cool looking machine. It's inspiring me to go buy one for myself and turn it into a hardcore race car, loosing the guns and making a new rear wing.
The lighting in yours is very cool and looks the part - especially the back exhaust. The paint work is great and nicely weathered
Great work all around Iain and as I said before - very inspirational for people like me :)
