To finish of the year I wanted to share something with you all that I have been sitting on for a few months now; a slightly bigger version of my Rebirth Batmobile. When I build my previous Rebirth Batmobile my goal was to keep it as small as possible in order to make it accurate in terms of scale to a minifigure and I did succeed in doing so but this also made the Batmobile look rather... small and not really something criminals would fear.
So I took my earlier design and made everything slightly bigger, the result you can see in the image below. Until now however I didn't feel like sharing it but since I wanted to upload one final thing before 2017 is over I decided that now was the right time :)
As you can see it is still pretty close to minifigure scale, perhaps it is even more accurate given that in the more recent Rebirth comics this Batmobile has been depicted as slightly bigger but this is down to the choice of the artist.
Overal I like this model more then the previous one, the increase in size allows for slightly more detail and as such it looks more accurate to the real thing, another plus is that a Batman figure can fit inside slightly easier allowing him to sit a bit more comfortable compared to the previous one.
If anyone has any suggestions for a sticker that can be used to represent the eyes on the Bat head please let me know as it would really finish the model.
Despite this being a "larger" version of my previous model it is still shorter then a Batman minifigure with cowl if only just.
And finally a shot based on this Batmobiles first appearance.
Finally let me finish of by saying a belated Merry Christmas to you all and I hope that you all have a Happy New Year! :)
