Well, against every fraction of logic I have in my brain, I am going to enter the Diorama GB. I am intending to use part of a "second" TV Batmobile. Long story why I had two identical Batmobile kits but if you are curious, check the build thread on my Futura/Batmobile Nigel SIG build--still in progress!!
In that same thread I believe that there is a picture posted by another member here of a rusted out Batmobile. My intention is to do a derelict Batmobile with an intact [but rusted] turbine engine, groat to back. Going to do my very best to keep this build "reasonable" in order that I can finish the Nigel SIG project at the same time. I intend to build the turbine engine from scratch using images of a TV Batmobile kit that has the turbine engine rather than the ICE.

Here is some inspiration?



Before anyone lets their imagination run too far, I will be using mostly the body and upper components--windshields, rocket tubes, etc, but NOT the chassis, tires, interior. I Will NOT be rusting this build anywhere near the Post Apocalyptic build I used in the last GB entry. I would like to show some paint, decal, chrome albeit all tarnished. I plan to mount the Batmobile on a ground base with a number of appropriate elements.

Time to get the preliminaries out of the way:

1.the kit box--same as the kit I used for the Nigel SIG [still in progress for me which is not funny--really sad actually].

2.Next, a shot of the contents of that kit.

3.the last "image" is actually a video. LEFT click on the image and you should be magically transported to my FLICKER page where you can then view the video and hear audio.

And now for some inspiration for the 1966 Turbine engine. THESE IMAGES ARE NOT MY WORK AND THE IMAGES DO NOT BELONG TO ME. They represent a turbine engine in a Diecast 66 Batmobile, the engine from the scale model 1989 movie Batmobile [Michael Keaton as Batman with Tim Burton directing]. The other image in the montage is a jet fighter engine. All of these are for reference to scratch build an engine for this GB.
I might add that I have the 1989 Batmobile from AMT/Round 2 models. its a great kit with all kinds of technical extras. Check it out here:
http://round2corp.com/product/1989-batmobile/
Someday I hope to build it into a diorama showing work on the 89 Batmobile in the Bat Garage?

sometimes I forget just how "CAMPY" the 66 shows and subsequent movie were. Here is a clip from the movie--see how long you can last before you choke on the special effects!

DOH!...................I just really noticed in the most recent blog as well as the diorama GB rules that I wasn't supposed to "start" until July 1st. I wasn't paying attention.

Everyone OK with me stopping posting until the actual  start date arrives?

Sorry I jumped the gun, the fence, etc. Should work out well since this will give me time to finish the Nigel SIG Batmobile?
