hey WAR Machine,
Thanks for asking about my build.
Still working on my Tumbler's nose cone weapons pod with cannons.
More complex than it first appeared.
Taking longer than expected. to complete.

How is your build progressing?

A few updates on my Tumbler.
Still working on the Nose Come weapons pod.
Finished grinding on the main core assembly.
Installed and welded the barrel sleeves and installed cannon barrels.
Still need to:
Finish cutting and welding remaining pieces of hinged nose access panel, then finish grinding.
Bondo complete Nose Cone weapons pod where required and let harden then sand everything appropriately.
Drill and tap for 70-80 bolts and install.
Obtain bronzed glass or acrylic plastic panes and install.
Complete and install remaining cannon assemblies.
Cannon capabilities:
Pnematic compressed air: for glitter, dust blast, etc., etc. effects.
Propane injection: for liquid flame effects
Sized for pyro special effects inserts: Can accept 1-1/2" diameter x 8" inserts (flash-dust-liquid fire effects)

Currently building the nose cone weapons pod movie correct except for enlarging the cannons.
Started today on the little details with work on foot steps, aiming actuators, and small pieces of armor.
Cut the actual steps from 1/4" raised diamond pattern steel plate.

That looks awesome! Aside from matching the movies, it also looks rugged enough to be on a REAL urban assault vehicle...

What gauge thickness of steel plate are you using? I've read some of your posts about your CNC Plasma cutter but never saw any specifics.

Really inspiring stuff; thank you for sharing!

hey WAERZENGINEER,
Welcome to the forum,
Thanks for the kind words.
All the body panels and nose cone weapons pod are being machined from 1/4" (.250 thousandths) steel plate.

Placed a copy of this post here for anyone planning to and/or actually building a Bat Vehicle.
Received an email asking,
"I am single, can afford to put 300.00 a month into a tumbler build, but I don't have the funds to buy all the expensive special tools I would need. Any advice for a new want to be bat mobile builder?"

First, join chickslovethecar.com and read all the forum postings.

Start a build log and post about why you want to build a Bat Vehicle and how you plan to build it.
Follow up with postings about your building space.
Forget about spending your 300.00 a month on "expensive special tools" and spend it on materials when possible. So, what about tools.
When you think about tools start thinking and using the minimalist approach.

As an example: In my next few build posts I will use a minimalist approach to make a few parts for my Tumbler's nose cone weapons pod.

Part One
Identify the material you plan to make your parts from: metal, fiberglass, etc.
I my case that is steel.
Ask yourself, "What are the minimal effective tools I can make my parts with?
Power drill with 2 hole saws, 1/8" drill bit, and 1/4" drill bit.
Reciprocating saw with metal cutting blade.
Metal cutting circular saw.
Metal grinder.
Flat and triangle file.
36" steel/aluminum ruler
