I posted a copy of this post here because it might be of some benefit
to anyone planning, starting, or currently building a Bat Vehicle.

Here from weldguru.com is the best and most comprehensive article I
have ever seen on the web for assessing and testing the quality of
welds. I put the table of contents below. Go to weldguru.com to read
the whole 2593 words on the subject. It is very informative and worth
reading for anyone interested in, and/or worried about the quality of
their welds.  vertigo

Guide to Weld Quality Testing
“To ensure the satisfactory performance of a welded structure, the
quality of the welds must be determined by adequate testing procedures.
Therefore, they are proof tested under conditions that are the same or
more severe than those encountered by the welded structures in the
field.”

This page contains visual inspection tips. The following pages contain
inspection methods for GMAW and physical weld testing.

hobbyists get started learning to mig weld through my free training.

With the recent postings focus on welding I have decide to post on a
question frequently asked of me by those interested in or new to
welding.

“What is the best start out welding book for someone wanting to learn
about or improve on their minimal welding abilities?”

The best current book that meets the needs of those wanting to learn
about or improve their minimal welding abilities is: The Art of
Welding

It really has no current competition in succinct to the point
descriptive text or quality of photo images and illustrations.

Many Junior High schools, High schools, colleges, and welding schools
now use this as their 101 welding introduction text.

I placed a copy of this post here because this information on tire
temperature effects on dimensional variables may be of some use to
someone planning and/or building a Bat Vehicle.
Interco list them as 44 x 18.5-16.50
One spec sheet refers to a Tire Diameter Range:
44.0-44.99 inches
At 70 degrees cold the tire is 44.0 inches tall
Once the tire starts rolling, and/or the temperature increases, the
tire will expand.
Throughout the operational range the tire is not supposed to expand
more than an inch in diameter.
There is no information on the range of width expansion throughout the
operational range.
I guess they don’t consider the width expansion variation as important
since the tires were not envisioned to be used in a dually
configuration. Probably the same reason there are no 16.5” dually
steel wheels for these tires

I placed a copy of this post here because this information on
tire-loading calculations may be of some use to someone planning
and/or building a Bat Vehicle.

Calculated the weight factor parameters for my Tumbler.
Each SAM-43 Super Swamper max loading 2855 lbs
X 4 = 11,420 lbs
Each Mickey Thompson front tire max loading 1500 lbs
X 2 = 3,000 lbs
Combined max loading weights = 14,420 lbs
In reality I can only use a factor of 1500 lbs per tire X 6 = 9,000
lbs for any weight loading above axle or in front of the rear tires.
6 equal points of ground contact X 1500 lbs = max loading of 9,000 lbs.
Needed front tires rated at 2855 each to get the full max loading of 11,420 lbs
So, I will try to keep my total Tumber weight around 8,000 lbs or less
but will have 9,000 lbs as a maximum possible total weight if I should
need it.
If I needed a little more tire weight carrying capacity above 9,000
lbs I would have to add some weight back behind the rear axle. The
fulcrum effect would tap into the lost 5,420 lbs of max tire loading
from the rear tires.   vertigo

ALERT: Hot Toys Batman Tumbler
This might have a significant effect on new Tumbler builders being able to obtain this 1/6 scale Tumbler.
Two months ago a few individuals began buying up the Hot Toys 1/6
Batman Tumblers remaining in the market for 450-600.oo.

Result: Two months later most of these Tumblers are now being offered
for sale on Amazon and other sites for a median price including
shipping for around 1200.oo. That is double the price from two months
earlier. The other 50% of these Tumblers range in price from 1249.oo +
shipping to a high of 1955.oo. This same pattern happened in the past
with the first generation release of the Hot Toys Batman Tumbler. The
average selling price went above 3000.oo with some offered for as much
as 5000.oo. At this point Hot Toys produced a second release of black
1/6 Batman Tumblers and an additional run of camouflaged 1/6 Batman
Tumblers.  These releases sold for 499.99 each.

If the current trend continues and the market for Hot Toys Batman
Tumblers continues to move at these price increases we will be seeing
additional released production runs of the Hot Toys 1/6 Batman
Tumbler. Further research in this shows that those in the market for a Hot Toys 1/6
Batman Tumbler are currently not buying them for much more than 850.oo.

What would a Batmobile be without being able to shoot fire from the rear afterburner?
Leaning towards the hot air balloon gas burner. A new one runs around 2,000.oo with thermo coil ignition. system.
These photo images show that the hot air balloon gas burner can be fired effectively in a horizontal position.
