Very cool site. This was a link sent to me by a friend in Japan. Batmobile body using cardboard or wood and foam, then fiberglass.

Well I'll be damned, a car made out of what looks like plywood. Lol, I wonder if it's street legal, a wooden car, I'd hate to ever have a fender bender with that thing.

Cool project.

If that was given a final coating of fiber glass would it help water proof / strengthen it?

Re: 89 Batmobile


I was planning on doing something VERY similar... but my design would involve me scanning a scale model of the car and then digitally slicing it so that you have basically a skeletal frame. You cut out those pieces to scale out of plywood and attach them to your frame. You fill in the "tweens" with carvable urethane foam and carve yourself a Batmobile using the skeletal pieces as a guide. Add detail and then fiberglass it...

Re: 89 Batmobile


Take a good look at the pics, they are using cardboard and luan plywood as a backer,adding foam, than carving the foam to shape. Looks as though they are taking the right approach. I wouldn't doubt that after the shape is done they will use that as a "buck" to make mold out of fiberglass,and than use that mold to make body pieces.

Re: 89 Batmobile


The method the person is using is the one-off method. Coat the finished mold or body with a release agent, cover it with fiberglass and pop the new body off. Another link for the foam construction method [sign in to see URL] . For a 3-D rendering of the Batmobile in Lightwave go to this site [sign in to see URL] .

Hey Bob, was looking for the 3D rendering of the Batmobile to see if it was the same 3D model of the car that I've got, but I can't seem to find it on the [sign in to see URL] section is it under?

[sign in to see URL], the 89 WAS in the movie (Daffy tries to steel it) as well as a BLACK sonar suited Bat.
It's kind of [sign in to see URL] the car starts/fires up, notice that they used the sound FX from the old 60's car.
Now stop being an ass, have fun and go rent yourself a cartoon!!:tongue

Re: 89 Batmobile


Striderx, This shop that you gave us the link for is about an hours drive from me down in south Jersey shore area. I do believe that batmobile was built for 6 Flags Great Adventure's Batman show. I already contacted them,,,,,They don't want to know anything about building one for the general public!

Re: 89 Batmobile


That last post was very [sign in to see URL] Batmobiles! I remember watching the making of the Italian Job, and they had to convert several of the Mini Coopers into electric power for filming in the subways. Just imagine how quiet and stealthy an electric Batmobile would be....
and fyi - the POR-15 rust preventer they mention in their article on restoring the Batmobile is some pretty neat stuff - I used it in restoring the floorboards of a t-top Trans Am and it worked great (but it's not cheap).

Jack Knight, are you talking about the file in [sign in to see URL]?
If that's the one, then all you need is a quicktime plug-in.
You can then rotate the image with ur mouse.
The site is down at the moment.

Yes I would like one too, it's unfortunate that guy who modeled the CG Batmobile hasn't released it to the public, oh well.

Re: 89 Batmobile


yeah - that render is gorgeous.
I think I might look into scanning my hotwheels model. I live in the metro detroit area and I know big 3 engineers have laser scanners here. I'm going to do some poking around.
