After years of crime fighting and loss, Batman gives up the 1960's Batmobile for a new generation of technology. Criminals progress in their abilities, so must the Batman. With the Bat cave and several vehicles undergoing renovation, the 60's Batmobile has to leave the cave. Once it is stripped of existing technology, it is relegated to a local junkyard. The Joker visits to leave his mark on the relic, and thieves try to remove the custom engine but fail and leave without their prize. Now the Batmobile lies in silence as nature slowly devours it.

I would like to thank everyone here for their kind comments and encouragement during the "Junkyard Batmobile" Diorama GB. I'm famous for not finishing GB's that I join but I have turned that around with the last two I've participated in. These last two projects have both evolved around rust and deselect objects. I hope that these final images present the work well. I posted the wide shots [for the most part] first, then images of various areas of detail.

This project and two others will eventually be grouped together to tell a single story line of the Batmobile from the car it was created from--The Ford Futura, to the 60's TV Batmobile, and finally, the 1989 Batmobile from the Tim Burton Movie "Batman"  [Starring Michael Keaton, Jack Nicholson, and Kim Basinger along with several other Hollywood favorites]. After the TV Batmobile, I like the 1989 Batmobile best. Subsequent Batmobiles  after the first Tim Burton movie all the way through the Christopher Nolan trilogy as well as the Batmobile for the Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice movie--nah. Don't care for them. No harm , no foul if you guys like different versions. Well, that's my line of thought concerning current Batmobile projects [I will finish the Futura/Batmobile Nigel SIG project], then later do another diorama representing the 1989 Batmobile in the Batcave.

Thanks guys! I had to come up with a storyline to fit into my trilogy project. The GB gave me the chance to complete a significant part of the project.

Well, I could not resist adding something to liven up this mid color range project. I went online and found the 60's TV  Batman emblem, modified it slightly, printed it, then attached to Artists foam core. Once good and dry, I cut the emblem out and mounted it on the riser base of the project with hot glue.

I also had the urge to show how I set up for the pictures, especially the FINALS. I had a lighter shade of blue poster board but a grandchild talked grandpa out of it for one of her projects. My replacement is a bit dark but seemed to work OK. I would say that bright white and black are difficult to work with.

I cleared a space on my workbench, then I clamped the edge of the poster board to the edge of the work surface. I let the poster board curve naturally against the back of my work area, but you can just place a weighted object behind to support the poster board. There should be a good space behind your model to the poster board. The curve eliminates a line behind your model.

My workbench lights are a 4' double tube fluorescent light [daylight--blue range bulbs] and two swing arm lamps with daylight 75watt bulbs. The swing arm lamps give me a lot of options during photography but also as I work on projects.

you can set up something similar on a table virtually anywhere. the real problem is having enough LIGHT. Unless you are using a camera with dedicated flash, you need a lot of light for photography. HINT: before you get super frustrated photographing a build you have completed, use a simpler object and do some research with your setup.

The only other question is whether or not you have access to some type of software to manipulate your images. ON phones, you can download apps that help with editing photos. I use a PC that has a very limited Photoshop program.

1. the fluorescent fixture
2/3. the swing-arm lamps
4. a simple swivel base that comes in very handy for work and photograpy
5. Claps that hold poster board to the table

Well, the fact you answered lately permitted me to receive a message that redirected me to your batmobile project... I'm really very impressed of your beautyfull work... As I like armour and choose two russian army tractors for the 2019 building group I will for sure take a close look on how you managed with the heavy rust weathering... Congrarulations for this impressive project.
