This is looking really good Prodigy :bananathumb:

I have an unmade Amt model kit of this version of the batmobile from about 19 years ago...so if you want me to take some pictures of reference parts let me know...
Why is it unmade?....well I really liked making plastic kits as a teenager, but moved on. (I guess you could say trueSpace has now replaced this teenage urge, and is more creative). Then when I got married we had to construct a wedding present list (as was traditional in the UK, at least then). My wife and I didn't treat it very seriously, so she put down a BMW convertible..and I put down my favourite car of the time, The Batmobile. On the day of the wedding my brother (who was also my best man) produced this model gift wrapped. After I got married I never got the time to make it and then took up watercolour painting seriously. Then came the kids and a demanding job and time disappeared...I am now thinking of making it this summer...so if you need shots of the parts before assembly let me know...

OK Prodigy, some quick snap shots of the model.

I have concentrated on details you might not get elsewhere, eg seats dashboard, underside..as well as main body.
I appologise for quality due to bad lighting.
If you want me to take a shot of any special part let me know :)

Wow! Fantastic work Prodigy. Must admit, I have a soft spot for cars from the movies and the Batmobile sits at the top of the list. Great work and can't wait to see more. :superbanana:
