I was very hesitant about building this one for 2 reasons. 1 People have already created some fantastic looking Tumblers and 2 I wasn't certain if I could do it justice.
Still a few months ago I found myself bored so I put on The Dark Knight soundtrack :) and went to work. After finishing the chassis however (which took me way longer than it should have) I forgot about it. Until very recently that is, unsure what Batmobile I should build next I wanted to give the Tumbler another chance so I continued were I left off and after many redesigns I finally came up with a design that I was satisfied with. The result you can see here.
I tried to keep it as small as possible as I always do but since I also wanted to be able to fit a minifigure inside mine might just be slightly too big for it to be 100% minifigure scale, still compared to a figure it is still pretty small and certainly one of the smallest Batmobiles that I have built.
One of my goals was also to give it real windows as opposed to just leaving open gaps to simulate them, so I came up with this solution and for me personally it looks pretty good.
A main overview of the vehicle, I tried to capture as many details as I could
A cool angle of the vehicle.
Batman next to the tumbler.
Side view, as you can see I also implemented the side windows.
The rear is something that I am particularly proud of.
As you can see I even managed to include the pistons? behind the wheels.
Batman in front of the tumbler to highlight its small scale.
Another good looking shot.
And like I said a full Batman minifigure including cowl can easily fit inside.
I hope that you enjoyed my take on this iconic vehicle. Feedback be it positive be it negative is always appreciated. Until next time :)

Incredible work! You got the shape spot on. What batman figure is that?
Thanks! The Batman figure actually consists of parts from a few different figures. The cowl, head and cape are from the regular Super Heroes Batman while the torso and legs are from the new one that appeared in the Dawn of Justice sets.
