    Hi guys,
    sorry for not posting for a such long time and thank you for your patience. Laser cutted frames came to me few weeks ago, but I did not have free time to assamble it. So hopefully, in a few days, there will be some new pictures.

    It´s been a loooong while since last update, but this model won´t be another forgotten unfinished project of mine. Working on the dashboard (colors are little bit fancy - don´t worry, it´s only because of rendering purposes).

    It has been a while since your last posting, that I completely forgot that you were building the batwing. Your Space Marine Jet bike took a while also but the end product was well worth the wait. The way that this is coming along, It will also be another splendid work worth the waiting. Thanks for sharing and see you around the forum.

    Oh, man, it looks so cool! Do you intend to release it? Will it be "buildable" in paper only?

    You will be able to download it like other models created by me. You can build this model also using other materials, but some parts are calculating with the thickness of paper - so you have to take into consideration this fact and adapt parts (but this is normal, when you want to make paper model without using a paper :) ).

    This model looks like it's going to be incredible. Beautiful work, and that cockpit is amazing!

    Hi guys,
    I have started unfolding this beauty.
    [​IMG]

    Before I print it out, I have to decide, what kind of "camouflage" I am going to use. I was thinking about two possibilities, camouflages:
    - First one looks like metalic-black painting. Not sure if I will be able to paint it with GIMP, but I know few guys who are (imcold for example, his X-Wing is incredible). You can see this painting on SideShow Collectibles model
    - Second is more about how I and most of people imagine batman's plane - black and very very dark grey (have you seen Batman's appearance in Lego The Movie trailer?)

    What do you guys think? Black metal or black and very very dark grey or both?

    Thank for your comments :)

    Ing, Spendlik

    EXCELLENT.... I am VERY excited about this. Definitely going on my gotta builds list... and by all means please do a coloring that shows a metallic surface like what you see on rifle and shot gun barrels where the bluing has worn down and the metal looks a tiny bit oxidized or off black.
