Re: Studio scale Batwing started...pics pg.3


 emoticon Wow, I can't wait to see this one done.

Makes me want to get out my ertl batwing kit and finish it for once.

Not to hijack or anything, but is the batwing kit Ertl released in 2003, the same kit as they released in 1990, or is it better, or what?

Yeah,they reissued the batmobile and the ski boat and batmissle from Returns too.

I might light it up but for now I think this is just going to be a static prop.
There's not really much to light up,so it's not all that important to me;it's good just the way it is for me.
I have another major project coming up that will be completely lighted in every which way,but that particular project warrants it.

Moving parts and lighting would be up the individual builder and they would be completely on their own.

Absolutely and I think you'll be pleased.:wink

I've been meaning to get some pictures up,but I got a couple of little things to do before a preview of what it will look like. I'm shooting for tomorrow hopefully and am currently working on it now a 2:51am as I type this.

A quick verbal..
I'm detailing the top and bottom pretty much overall before I move on to the rest.
I ripped out the entire cockpit. The seat and everything in there was off center and really crappy overall,so I'll just make all new stuff,which I've already started.
I made a pretty accurate canopy frame for the glass. Two piece and fits like a glove. Damn proud of that.
Still on the top,then I'll move to the bottom,which is already well on its way.
I cut about 75% of the bottom out and have to completely redo it so both sides match. One side is thicker than the other,so it needs to be resculpted..accurately,of course.
After this I'll join the wings,which are already cleaned up for the most part. A few things before attaching them,but nothing major.

Although it seems slow going,I made lots of progress considering how bad it is.

Matt used to own this kit. I got from Ed and I know crazzierbats has seen it. I think all three can tell you how incredibly horrible this is/was,but after experimenting with the top and the results I've gotten so far,the rest will be a piece of cake.
Just time consuming,but fairly easy.

I'll have pics soon.
