Re: Batman Begins Batsuit Armoire & Wayne Enterprises Equipment Case


Brass grilles are in, and after a little trimming are ready. I just started cutting the wood for the frames around them, so I expect a few more weekends before those are 100% done. This is where precision matters. The brass material, while not totally accurate, will work great. A little black canvas behind them adds a lot of depth. Really excited to get these done and the lower handles installed.

Image

Gears! These I'm most excited about. Except I misjudged the spacing between the handles a little, and I'll have to rebuild the handle arches and move the handles about 1" farther apart to make these work. Still, the action on these is perfect and will really sell the whole thing. If I push I may have the whole handle system rebuilt and ready by the end of the weekend.

Image

And with that, I have all the pieces I need to complete this (armoire) build in hand, and it's only a matter of my time and skill to finish it. Undersuit is still pending.

Re: Batman Begins Batsuit Armoire & Wayne Enterprises Equipment Case


Pretty good week. I haven't done much on the armoire in awhile, but I finally (after > 1 year) got an accurate undersuit. Also today I received a mannequin to work on. I never had legs with my first suit, so this is kind of fun seeing it all come together. In these shots, I don't have the leg armor staged on the undersuit legs, and nothing is glued down yet, but it gives a good idea how it's going to eventually look. It's also creepy as hell being in the same room with it.

The mannequin will make mounting all the armor much easier, and I'll probably keep it around to occasionally swap the suit out from the armoire to this. Just looks too cool not to have it all put together sometimes. Hope to have it all mounted up by the end of the weekend.

Couple more showing belt closeup, and with cape & cowl:

Still need to mount the leg, knee, and calf armor. And I do have cape clips, but I haven't brought myself to being able to cut holes in the torso for proper attachment yet. Half the time I'm going to have the torso hanging in the closet, and I don't want the cape holes visible.

Very motivated now to finish the suit closet doors too

Got the leg armor mounted last month, so here's pics of the 100% done suit.

Still got a bit of work to do on the armoire doors. Too many house projects right now.

I did get some better pics of my League of Shadows gauntlets and their custom case:

Re: Batman Begins Batsuit Armoire & Wayne Enterprises Equipment Case


Got back to work this weekend. Things don't look dramatically different yet, but the handle arches have been completely rebuilt to accommodate wider spacing between the handles, the gears on the reverse side can function.

Image

Also attached the mesh grilles to the backing and staged to see how that's going to work out. Next up: the grille frames. Those shouldn't take too long to cut and stain, and my idea is to plane out a bit on the reverse side for the grilles to inlay.

Other little things to do: stain and attach the crown molding on the outside around the whole closet, apply some lacquer, finalize the lighting wiring.

And here's the gears on the insides of the doors:

Image

Still need to stain the insides and figure out where to mount the batarang hangers. One unforeseen issue I'm running into now: the vertical bars for the gears are so heavy that their weight is enough to pull them down, even rotating the handles on the front. I don't know yet how to solve this. Maybe there is some sweet spot of tightness where the posts won't fall on their own, but can still be moved when the handles are turned.

Everytime I log in and see there is an update on this I get a little twinge of jealousy because I know the update makes this even more awesome than it already is. Great work man!
