From the back, and how it is stored in the case. Only the side bumpers and feet are missing from the case and then I think I can finally call this done.

Whew, well it took just over a year to finish, but my Wayne Enterprises Applied Sciences division equipment case (crate?) is finally done, including all its contents.

It's essentially made of wood, with some 3D printed embellishments on the outside. Inside are 2 trays of equipment.

Tray 1 is mostly based on the screen reference of Bruce Wayne's walkthrough with Lucius Fox, but a little bit extended. The metal data plate on the lid of the case is actually the original screen-used prop from that scene.

- Grapple Gun
- Belt
- Belt Containers
- Utility Harness
- Extra Grapple Clips
- Grapple Darts
- Data sheets

Tray 1 lifts out with some straps on the ends to access the bottom layer.

Tray 2 is "all my other TDK trilogy props" that needed a home. Now I realze it doesn't make a ton of sense that a Wayne Enterprises case would have bat-themed objects in it, but maybe the story is that Bruce added them afterwards? Anyway, that's why they are on Tray 2.

- Pneumatic Mangler + Gauntlet
- Cape Clips
- 6 small metal Batarangs + holder
- 2 loose small metal Batarangs
- 3 large metal folding batarangs
- Tumbler Key
- Boot Sonar Beacon
- Mini-Mines
- Grapple Holster

On the underside of the lid are some aluminum plaque versions of the data cards, embedded into the protective foam layer. This detail is not screen accurate; I just thought it would look cool.

Dimensions: 31.5"L x 24"W x 19"H

A Masterpiece! Museums-quality prop replicas, the "crate"looks absolutely breathtaking! Words are not enough to express how much this work of art impresses me!

I agree with Red's sentiments. Great Job on this.

Re: Batman Begins Batsuit Armoire & Wayne Enterprises Equipment Case


(I can't find my old Batsuit Armoire thread, so I'll use this one)

After finishing the case, I got inspired to revisit my Batsuit Armoire. Now, I've never been more than about 60% satisfied with the finish on this. The source reference is very badly lit and shot, and it's hard to tell just what is going on, nevermind all the dirt and weathering on it. But I knew that my closet was far too 'orange' so I experimented with some new stains this weekend.

I'd been afraid of going too red, specifically "barn red" but it turns out that's mostly what I needed. So I mixed up about 70% Barn Red/30% Sedona Red, and brushed it on top of what I already had, and I have to say I'm really beginning to love this. I also started refinishing the large center ring on the front, adding in about 4 different Rub 'n Buff colors to get a nice patina of copper, bronze, and gold. It's beginning to shape up, but I'm not done yet. I want to bring out some more of the deeper details with a black wash, and do lots more buffing to get more shine out of the highlights. I'll do the same to the handle rosettes.

I'll probably apply the wash over some of the red parts too to add character and age. I'm not quite mentally ready to give it the same amount of weathering as the original, which has chunks of wood missing and huge stripped areas. That may not ever happen. I'm fine with mine looking slightly newer.

Beyond that, I've begun working on the details for the sides which have always been unfinished.

The only question is... if I ever need to move this thing, how the heck am I going to get it out of the home office and down the hallway?

Beautiful work. I think if you ever have to move it you'll have to carefully wrap it in moving blankets and use an appliance cart. Kind of like moving a refrigerator.
