Found this Life Size LEGO Batman Movie Batmobile.
Contains detailed instructions for building this bat vehicle and demonstrations of useable building techniques.
Even though it is built in foam one could easily translate the foam pieces to fiberglass and install it onto a suitable donor vehicle.

Life Size LEGO Batman Movie Batmobile
By Haunted Spider in Living Halloween

"So, the LEGO Batman movie came out this year. My son has been dressed up like Batman for the last 6 months since the movie. I wanted to create a batmobile that was big enough for him to look proportionate to it. I set out to create at 1' from 1" scale from the LEGO model of the Batmobile Speedwagon from the movie.

Below are the final results of my build with as many details as I remembered to photograph, and it is very picture heavy.

It ended up 12 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 6 feet tall at the tip of the wings.

I have to say thanks to my wife for putting up with me during the build. She took care of our two little ones while I was working many hours in evenings and on weekends. She is the best and I couldn't build without her."

There is truly a lot of valuable information to be learned from this build.
No CNC, no special tools, just regular tools used in imaginative ways to produce desired effects in foam pieces production.
Many excellent ways to solve foam sealing, damage repair, non-conventional materials as coatings to build up and prepare surfaces for painting.

" The foam had to be smoothed as much as possible. White foam is bead foam, where it tears out, sometimes easier than I would like. Any tear out had to be patched. Once patching was done and the surface sanded, areas also needed filled to make it look smooth and not like foam. I used Alex Plus caulk for most of this. The majority of the whole surface of the build was skimmed with caulk, watered down a bit with a spray bottle after applied. It was then tooled smooth. This helps to hide the fact that almost all of the build is foam. Anything that was foam or wood was then painted with a thick layer of Sherwin Williams Peel Bond primer. This is a extremely thick build up primer designed to smooth out surfaces where paint has chipped on houses. It is the consistency of ketchup. It also smooths the surface of my foam to get closer to a plastic look. I couldn't afford the epoxy coats as they are over $100 a gallon and my build would have taken 2 or 3 minimum. To cover the build, it took about 1 3/4 gallons of the primer. Most of it was sprayed on through the HVLP sprayer but it didn't spray well and many of the surfaces needed touched up.

Once the primer was done, 2 layers of a black base coat was next. Several areas were taped off to keep the black paint from getting on surfaces which would end up a lighter gray. The HVLP spray gun worked beautifully here. It covered great and left minimal work to be done with a brush for the black base coat. The rest of the colors had to be completed with a brush. This included light gray, dark gray, yellow, blue, and red. The metallic gray for the exhaust and the blue for the engine cap were spray paint."
