Re: Making a working '89 Batarang...updated pics pg. 6


Thanks again guys.
Tim,I got a million and one creative ideas,but no money to turn them into reality. This batarang cost me a week and a half worth of food so far and I'm a BIG eater. :lol (I don't see things costing me [sign in to see URL] look at it as costing me food.)

Nobody wants to guess how it works? :huh

rubber band?

drilled holes and glued something in place, something that took a long time to dry? flat elastic perhaps?

I see something in the pics on page 4, and on page 6 it looks like there's something going on with the back of it in pic 4. page 4 looks like

if I'm not mistaken though he already ruled out an elastic, embedded *or* on the surface.

well, namtaB said rubber sheet glued into notches, and I got a "Tom,you're sorta,kinda,halfway in a roundabout way on the right [sign in to see URL] the right train anyway. " with the embedded elastic, so was just trying variations of the theme

I just use blatant hinges when I want something to fold, --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

When I have time to cast up another batch I'm going to cut a slot in the edge and embed a magnet and some metal so it stays open. BTW, made 1/2 then molded and cast twice, assembled and cast solid copies for throwing, this was my nightwing batarang take, but we ended up using the large circular style in the movie. Also want to add a spring so it'll pop open on it's own, as it is you have to flip it open.

anyway, I'd still like to read how it's done, and stick with my [sign in to see URL] just twine pulled tight?

Tom was definitely very close with his first guess. Tim was almost right. :lol

Bungee cord is the answer.
In the molds,I cut 3/16" tubing to fit going straight across. The bungee is just about that size and slides through pretty well. The thickness part of the rang at it's thinnest is 1/4" thick,so everything needed to be precise. The tubing was done for both strength so there's isn't any strain on the resin,plus it's a perfect sleeve so no drilling. Also,I put magnets and steel in to lock it [sign in to see URL] working on that. I didn't take any pics while doing it,but you can see what I mean by these pics.

The cord is secured to one side,then threaded through the two middle sections and secured to the other side.

Re: Making a working '89 Batarang...updated pics pg. 6


hey bungee cord IS elastic :p

I can't believe I would overlook the possibility of something else like the tube in [sign in to see URL] all my cable control experience.... oh well.

In any case, Nicely done! I'd still like info on one, always wanted that fella, and with one this good looking, why spend time on sculpting, molding, and casting my own.

btw, what did you use to mold it?
