So thanks to Shaggy I've started to scale my Tumbler to the sizes that I need to be street legal here in my province.

Here are my dimensions:

Batmobile

And I've also started to break down the cabin dimensions from this scale as well.  Thanks again Shaggy, I would be nowhere near the point I am now without your help. It would have been a start from scratch build.  These are a great template to get started where everything is in scale.. all the details can be added as each panel is addressed.

Yep.. got the templates as well.. I'm just not sure on how to scale them to the size that I need and then find a printer big enough to print them out

Any suggestions?

go check out my batpod build in the members area, it has a how-to instructions on how to print large templates from home using a common printer, eliminating the need of a large format printer.

Woo Hoo.. I was able to get my personalized plates ordered at the Transportation office today...

So this bad boy will eventually be sporting hide-away "TMBLER" plates.

Looks like I am going to be able to get some hands on with the cabin framing this weekend.. fingers crossed

Until then I'll be working on getting those templates printed out.

That's an awesome model, that's sketchup, right?

It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.
