Oooh you know. Just doing the usual little song, little dance. My paycheck's head on a lance.

Needing to pay off last months busted up Stage Rally debt, and fix junk on the Daily first.

So are you the one I've heard about whom was working with... another member on a new kit? I'd be interested in details to what would make one purchased shell better than the old and typically purchased ones.

I assume your are talking about 1989 kits or maybe 1966.
No, I'm not the one you refer to.

I've never used a purchased shell but I would assume that some of the attributes to look for would be:
Accuracy of representation to original movie bat vehicle.
High degree of symmetry between the two halves of the shell
Quality of materials and thickness of the shell
Alignment and fit accuracy between pieces
Smooth and even curve gradients and transitions

Sly and others with more fiberglass experience than myself could probably better address your question with their observations.

Ah, then why do you ask about my lack of build startup?

And by no means am I trying to start up yet another trash and bash discussion. After reading through hundreds of posts there's already plenty of that here in the past 15 years.

My guess is Vert is curious about which Batmobile you are building, or are interested in building. There are several options, '66, '89, others in that series, Tumbler, DOJ, JL, Game car, toon car, etc. doubt he ment it as an insult. We ALL start with a dream, nothing wrong with that.

I have been fascinated reading through all of the post Begins builds but for me as with many only one, the 89/92. I really enjoy looking at the work and details which went/goes into the Affleck vehicle, it is very cool looking.

There are 3... or 4 vehicles that have always been on my bucket list and the '89 has easily been the number one for the longest. Just never acted on it earlier seeing it wasn't until recently that I even knew how relatively "easy" it is to acquire one. And by easy I mean you could actually build one not from complete scratch, like many have done, and you don't need to fork over a briefcase filled with enough money to buy a house.

So... you know. The same pipe dream story all of you've heard over the many years and which I've read through in many posts. So as mentioned before, need to pay off some unexpected debt from a recent Rally, fix my neglected daily then save up a wad of cash for you know who so I can start a new adventure which would actually bring me joy instead of grief from constantly being destroyed.

I will admit... prepare your pitch forks and Ban sticks now, there are many elements to the Forever car which I absolutely love. But... that would be back to having to build a body from scratch let alone listen to and explain myself to every single person who sees it.
