This is my WIP supercar: the batmobile. Once I get the pieces I need, I'll start some serious design; now I only have some demos. I'll let the pics talk now! :tongue:

The seat demo
Posted Image
A little demo of the whole thing kind of thrown together
Posted Image
A pic of one of the independant firing tri-cannons
Posted Image
Same: a view of the firing mechanism
Posted Image
A demo for some flames on the rear that turn with the wheels, and rear cannons
Posted Image
Rear view

And a video of the tri-cannnons firing:

As seen in the video, only two fire. I will make it where while that clutch is clutching :laugh: , The other fires. Then, it will be completely
independant firing.  :sweet:

Hope you like it,
Porty.  :wink:

Thanks.  :sweet: It really is not started yet, because everything is just a demo.  :grin:

But thanks, offtopic: this contest we joined is a failure. I think you weren't picked because EB didn't want to pay for shipping the Unimog over here to you. I mean, its ridiculous!  :angry: I know I didn't make a winner MOC, but IMO you did.  :angry:  :hmpf_bad:  :thumbdown:

It seems pretty silly to argue with a public vote.

Indeed. I see my mistake.

Are you building the model to scale reference photos?
I think that's extremely important. It serves as a guide to answer the questions of "what is not quite right here."

I would definitly agree.  When I first started building large scale models, I only went by memory.  Now I try to find a real life copy and print out the specifications and dimensions and scale them down.  Now I am able to build much more realistic models with the proper preportions.

Well, obviously you started in the wrong direction. Build the chassis first, then the body.
