The Third Models – Polar Lights – 1966 BATMAN – 1/25 Batmobile Build/Diorama

Here is my 1/25 1966 Polar Lights Batmobile build/Diorama.
My personal favorite Batmobile!
Here’s what I did…
The model was Airbrushed several fine coats of Tamiya Gloss black. I wet sanded the the paint after each application. I then buffed it to a high gloss shine.
Based on my research(your mileage may vary), I hand painted the pin stripes with Krylon glowing cerise…it was decanted from the spray paint, after first applying a flat white stripe.
The model also features a new beacon made of aluminum to replace the kit’s inaccurate part.

The three rocket launchers are also hand cut aluminum that replaced the toy-like kit supplied parts.
I lowered the suspension of the car to match up to the look of the actual #1 car used during the filming of the series. I detailed the parachute bags with fine wire.

The base was made from various supplies I had on hand at the time to reflect the Bat Cave entrance.
Highest Regards,
Mark Myers
