I was in my favorite hobby store Smith Brothers and found this snap kit of the Batmobile. It’s 1/24 scale. The body is prepainted and pin striped and after doing one that wasn’t pre=painted and not being able to get the stripes perfect this is wonderful and a time saver with my busy schedule. Not to mention it was only 25 bucks! The same kit in the raw is 40 bucks.

Anyways (to quote Simon) I have always loved the car and don’t have one except for the hot wheels version. I’m having a ball building it. It’s super clean too! Oh the the figures are pre-painted too.

Just started on it still lots to do but I’m savoring it.

    COOOL! When I was a kid I lived in the hills across from Universal Studios. (We dumpster dived for botched animation cells from Hanna Barbera and got popsicles from the Spirit Cellar liquor store. Blackfoot Mountain was the view from my grandpa’s patio. I used to walk to school in the 4th Grade with my twin sister and a few other kids down Ellington Drive to Barham Blvd. and then south past the George Barris showroom on the way to Valley View Elementary School. I used to peer into the grimy window at the Stingray, the Batmobile and the Green Hornet’s car every day going to and from school, and then go home and watch Batman on TV. So, I’ve got a special place in my heart for that car, Steve. 🙂

    Great stuff, Steve. I’ve seen this one at Hobby Lobby, and I keep telling myself one of these days I’m going to get one. The pre-painted body and figures are fantastic. The real car is one of the best vehicles ever made. (Yes, I know there were 5 of them) I love that TV show, I have all 3 seasons on DVD, and the movie on Blu-Ray. I also have the two animated movies they made before Adam West passed away on Blu-Ray.

      Chris the one I blew is when they had that big diecast model that had opening doors and all kinds of cool stuff. I may still track one down. But when I saw this at the hobby store I told myself get it now or it will be gone next time. I was 14 when the show first aired. Never liked the new stuff.

    Steve, your progress pics gave me a little chuckle – without the windshield and steering wheel, it looks like Robin’s surrendering, and Batman’s bragging about the fish that got away. 😀

    I’ll enjoy seeing this go together. I’ve got the glue-together kit, and yeah, the pinstriping is what’s keeping it off my workbench. I need to practice on (in other words, ruin) another car kit first.
