Hello you lot. This is only my second post on here
But I thought I'd show you the work I'm doing on my build.
As far as I know it's a casting from the studio model car used in the Axis Chemical Plant scenes.
I'll get some pictures up together and add them to this post later.
Stay tuned

Sorry about the delay in a update peeps.
Anyway I got this kit in a trade for some other models.
I've done some research on line and it does look like the studio cast.
When I got it it had no underside/floor, no interior (but weirdly had seats and dashboard) and the wheels were terrible, virtually useless.
Anyway as a model builder with a few years under my belt I thought I could polish this turd.
First thing I did was cut out the gun covers.

Batmobile

You can see by this pic the uneven thickness of the shell. I had new gun covers laser cut out of acrylic but had to add the vents/louvers with split plastic rod.

Here's what I did to get the mesh into the openings on the gun covers.
I cut a slice off the back with a razor saw (very fiddly) and trapped the mesh in between.

Quite a bit of work cutting all the bits out with just the right angle on them.
Next #i tackled the middle. So I slammed the supplied afterbburner in the lathe. ( it was rubbish anyway)

Then I made another one, Now I cant decide which one to use.

Oh, that is a tough one. I kind of like the shorter one better. But both are very nice.

It seems to me that posts on here are only popular if it's a full size build.

At times it does seem like you're talking to yourself on here. I think people check on the threads but don't regularly comment.

The work you have done so far looks nice and clean. And I think I'll vote for the short afterburner cone.

Don't worry if people don't leave a comment, at least it's not criticism .

For my tupence worth, the shorter cone looks more accurate. Looks like you are doing a great job so far and you are making me want to finally make a start on modding my HT 1/6th
