Going by the pics that model looks terribly skewed in length making it appear short and fat. Not attractive in my opinion. Also many differences in details from the DOJ car. I hope that is not what Batman's cowl will look like. That's hideous.

Placed a copy of this post here for anyone that might be able to benefit from the technique.
Today I continued to work on building the U-shaped upper shocks and
actuators integrated mounting and frame assembly.
Specifically, on the long lead pieces and the U shaped bend.
It would take a huge hydraulic bender a very high strength dies to be able to bend 2" x 2" x 1/4" wall square tubing. Since this type of bender and dies are not available to me I am using an old school method to fabricate the U-bend. Basically I have separated the four sides and bending planes of this part. This way I only have to work with one direction of bending force at a time. I completed the upper and lower planes that included the U -Bend shape curves. For the inside and outside curves I will cut two flats 1-1/4" wide and 1/4" thick. I will then use an acetylene/Oxygen rosebud tip to heat these flats up and then work these around the inside and outside curves. Then weld these to complete the U-Bend square tubing. This method can be used for anything similar.

Like it or not, this gives us a good clear look at Batman’s newly
modified Batmobile for the Justice League movie.
The photo of the Justice League Batmobile while being transported is
believed to have been taken in Los Angeles on the way to the WB Studio
Tour.

I placed a copy of this post here for anyone that might be able to
benefit from the technique.

The basic steps to fabricating compound, intersecting, and curving
multi-directional shapes in metal.

Study the part or collective assembly to determine the lines of forces
travel (tensile-compression-elasticity) and mark these on a drawing or
photo-image.

Make a list of those that you can separate by single directional lines of forces.
Flats and plates
Curve and radius

Methods of integrating single direction lines of forces.
Intersecting the flat directional lines of forces for two or more
pieces and welding their contact edges together.
Bending flats around a curve and welding their contact edges together.

Make a list of those that cannot be separate by single directional
lines of forces.
Spherical and semi-spherical
Compound curves and radius

Methods of integrating and shaping multi-directional curving lines of forces.
Metal stretching
Heating the metal and hammering to selectively vary thicknesses

Geometric translation into curves.
Intersecting the flat directional lines of forces for three or more
pieces and welding their contact edges together. Then blending into
multi-directional curves by adding or subtracting metal.
You can also blend the multi-directional curves by using resin, epoxy, Bondo, etc. to smooth out the welded geometric intersection. Many materials can be used to achieve tis result. Large and small parts of varying complexity can be made using this technique.

How about adding an afterburner cold flame special effect?

Part One

Close to an audience, you might use a cold flame special effect with
just CO2 and a red, orange, or yellow filtered high intensity flood
light inside the afterburner. (Like the hand held search lights with
1,000,000 + candlepower.) The rushing exhaust of cold liquid CO2 as it
changes to a gas and "snow or white translucent and semi-reflective
dry ice solid particles" diffuses the light into a swirling jet of
motion. Deflection tabs can a mounted inside the exhaust nozzle to
refine the shape of the exhaust gas pattern.  Coupled with a recorded
jet exhaust sound effect and it appears very believable.

Best things about the cold flame special effects are no heat or burn
risk to audience, no fire hazard, and no residues left behind like
those from glitter and colored powder injectors.

Note: Touching a cold afterburner nozzle that may be below zero can
cause freeze burns.

Yes, I know you can get glitter and colored powder in bio-degradable
formulations but they can take quite a while to degrade.

Part Two
Why CO2 is the go to gas/solid/liquid for cold flame special effects.

CO2 is normally a gas at room temperature and pressure. It has to be
stored under high pressure to make it a liquid. When you release the
pressure, the gas expands enormously and cools to make a huge white
jet that allows the carbon dioxide gas to expand, cool, and turn into
a mixture of frozen "snow or white translucent and semi-reflective dry
ice particles" and gas.

Basic Science Characteristics of Carbon Dioxide as a Liquid, Gas, or Solid.
Liquid CO2 is produced by compressing and cooling CO2 gas. This liquid
is a clear transparent fluid. Liquid CO2 cannot exist as a liquid at
atmospheric pressure. It must be pressurized above 60.4 psi to remain
as a liquid. At this pressure, Triple Point, CO2 can exist as liquid,
gas and solid. Below this pressure it will flash to a gas and solid.
More specifically, it behaves as a supercritical fluid above its
critical temperature (304.25 K, 31.10 °C, 87.98 °F) and critical
pressure (72.9 atm, 7.39 MPa, 1,071 psi), expanding to fill its
container like a gas but with a density like that of a liquid.

I placed a copy of this post here for the benefit anyone that might be
able to use this information in planning and/or building a Bat
Vehicle.

How about adding an afterburner cold flame special effect?

Part Three: Exhaust Nozzle Basics

I received at email asking for information on nozzle designs and how
to prevent freeze up.

The two major problems he referred to are related to allowing the CO2
to exit at high speed, so any snow that forms doesn't block it up and
how to best produce turbulence in the exhaust gas/snow mix.

For many years these were problems with the CO2 fire extinguishers
until they were finally resolved in 1975 by the Brooks Equipment
Company.

Given that their CO2 exhaust nozzle design has not been improved on,
this would appear to be the best place to start when designing a Bat
Vehicle afterburner exhaust cold flame special effect.

If I were building this effect I would start with an intact CO2 fire
extinguisher horn and surround it with three-six small high intensity
lights with a mix of orange, yellow, and red filters.

The mix of colored filters and gas turbulence would give the effect a
pulsing flicker flame effect. One could even set up a pulse flicker
control on the lights themselves. The sophistication and effectiveness
of the afterburner cold flame special effect is only limited by the
user’s imagination.

Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers

Artwork: A typical carbon dioxide fire extinguisher. From US Patent
3,901,322: Fire Extinguisher Discharge Horn by Jack Winston, Brooks
Equipment Co., Inc., August 26, 1975, courtesy of US Patent and
Trademark Office. Photo-image attached.

The CO2 fire extinguisher horn is designed very carefully to stop two
major potential problems: It allows the CO2 to exit at high speed, so
any snow that forms doesn't block it up, and creates uniform gas/snow
turbulence. This typical design from a patent by Brooks Equipment in
the 1970s solves both problems.

able to use this information in planning and/or building a Bat
Vehicle.
Worked on designing an upper U-bar double shock mounting bracket and created a wood pattern.
I decided to post the steps of making a custom mount for anyone that may not be familiar with this method.
So,
Step One: Design and make a life-size wooden pattern. vertigo

Vehicle.
Worked on cutting pieces for upper U-bar double shock mounting.
I decided to post the steps of making a custom mount for anyone that may not be familiar with this method.
So,
Step Two: Cut out parts.: In this case I cut the pieces from 1/2" plate steel with an oxygen/acetylene torch.
Note: To effectively cut straight lines I clamp a straight edge. Usually a 3/4" square piece of bar stock.
Note: The torch tip does not touch the metal being cut but rather is held approximately 1/4" above the metal being cut while guided against the straight edge.

The three reasons Oxygen/Acetylene torch out fits are still used is portability, reliability, and cutting ability.
No electricity required. I have used the rig seen in the photo image in some pretty remote locations to cut and gas-weld repair damaged off road vehicles.

Step three: Drilled shock mounting holes and bolted them together.
Step four: Used hand grinder to shape and contour the laminated metal pieces.
Step five: I will weld the pieces of the mount together.
Step six: I will then weld the finished mount to the U-bar. vertigo

I placed a copy of this post here because it might be of some use to
someone planning to build or actually building a Bat Vehicle.

SELF-EVALUATION INVENTORY

What Tool Using Skills / Available Options do you have available for a
Bat Vehicle Build?

I have listed many tools below that may be useful to a Bat Vehicle
Planner and/or Builder.

The best way to think about tool using skills is to think about them
as currently available problem solving options. The more tool using
skills you acquire the more Bat Vehicle problems solving options you
have.

Tool using skills are also about practice (improved ability through
practice) and the degree of tool using sophistication. How much
experience you have using a particular tool and how effective you are
is using the tool to solve build problems.

How many can you use?
Are there any you need to get familiar with or become master of?

Check yourself against the tool inventory listed below, circle/mark,
and decide if you are FAMILIAR, GENERAL USER, or MASTER of the tool’s
potential for solving Bat Vehicle building problems.
