The first pics looks to me like it might be from the "Forever" version of the bat-wing, you know, the "knocked down by green light" kind, :wink

The second one I believe to be a screen used model, and it has rivets. Look at the back of the wing. It would make sense for it to have rivets since there pretty much is only one way to make aircraft, I would expect the bat-wing to be made with aircraft sheets and put together with rivets for aerodynamic purposes.

If you want to stay within reason of a fictitious story anyways :wink Just my thoughts. Good luck with your project! Looking forward to seeing it, whatever it is!

Re: Needed: super-clear pics of the 89 Batwing


I know those Kits, I restored one for a friend. It was VERY difficult to glue the wings on, I had to reinforce them with metal and epoxy glue.

There are 2 little models of the Batwing, the 2 feet, and the 8 feet model. The 2 f has light, no Gattling Gun , no rockets, and the Batman is not moving. The 8 f has some animatronic Batman, rockets, Gattling gun, and cable scissors. And is very detailed on the outside.

Re: Needed: super-clear pics of the 89 Batwing


Now,that's what I'm talking about.
Thanks Red. :wink

This is exactly the info and pics I'm looking for. Honestly,I didn't think anybody would really have any,but I'm glad I asked. :)

Yeah,it's the same kit,but your's,believe it or not,was in much better shape.
There isn't a single even surface at all on this casting.
Certain areas are either sunken in,or bulged out,but I got a plan.

Keep 'em coming!

Glad to be a help for you! :) Hope those pictures show up on Batman Unmasked, so all Batwing Fans can reach them. The Batwing I had was also very uneven, I think the mold was to thin, and so the casting had this horrible surface. Both tips of my Batwing are broken, and as the Wings and tips are hollow, it was a pain to get those things right. I had to fill those sunken areas, and to sand down the others. And then the bubbles... thousends, as I sanded down the piece. After sanding the wings, lines are missing , and I had to scratch them into the plane. After glueing the wings to the body they fall off. The casting was to thin to hold the wheigt of the wings, so I had to glue in some long metal plates. Jerry (Superherogloves) has a Kit also, and to my knowledge, he plans to mold them, perhaps his Kit is in better shape?
Perhaps first generation recast, not shure:

I've always loved the Batwing and to this day I am saddened each time I see it shot down

Re: Needed: super-clear pics of the 89 Batwing


Here are some decent b/w shots of the detailed model at each major angle, taken by the on-set photographer in ~1989. I purchased these as part of a set of "behind the scenes" pics and probably should watermark them, but I hate doing that.

Good question about the rivets. You can see in the last shot that tiny rivets were in fact painted on, though they barely show even in the close-up and not really any other shots.

** RANT ALERT **
I paid $250 for a nice looking Batwing kit to 55lincolnfutura in 2005, a Brother here on the board. I never received it, and got and ENDLESS litany of excuses until I was worn down enough to give up. He skillfully never sent me his real name, used a Yahoo email account, and got me to pay a third party (a legitimate model seller) for the piece. If anyone here can help me get the kit I paid for, or get me his name and contact info, I would be grateful. If you talk to him, tell him to be a man and right his wrong.

He ripped me off in the same week as a eBay seller, who never shipped the studio scale Batmobile I paid for and then left eBay. It put a bad taste in my mouth for studio scale pieces. In my current house, I don't have room for them anyway, but it still ticks me off.
** END OF RANT **

Thanks Tony, those pictures are the best! It looks like the bigger, 8 feet model, very detailed. The Kit I made is the 2 feet Kit, and so the painting is much more difficult to do. Do you have any measurements from this Batwing?
