    I've been considering this as a future project to build at a later time. I was also wondering if anyone has attempted to build a Batpod, the bike as seen in "The Dark Knight"?

    batmobile


    Yes, there is one out there, the Keaton Batmobile. I also made this one but I can't remember the site. If you find it, when you build it, the colors are too gray. You may have to either hand paint or photo shop it to a darker gray or totally black.

    Wow!
    Very well crafted, can recommend the type of paper, to venture to this model, and how long you finished?

    The paper I used for this model was 110lbs weight. The wheels were laminated heavy tubes and then sanded around the edges round and the lugs were cut and inserted individually. i used a wooden dowel for the rear axle,

    The gray version has that stealth looks to it. I really like that. I was hoping someone will do a WIP. Workout all the bugs before I build my. :mrgreen:

    Thanks for the comment. I only regret that I did not do a build thread for it. It was one of my first models and it could have been built better. If I should get around to it, I may do it again, but I got too much on my plate at the moment. Enjoy and see you around the forums.:wave::wave::wave:
