Batman
« on: April 25, 2014, 09:27:59 AM »
This one was new to me. Beta version by Professor's Paper Empire - no instructions but fairly simple to build.



You can find it through Mauther's blog:

http://papermau.blogspot.fi/2012/01/1949s-batmobile-vintage-style-by.html

Paper Empire is a fun site to visit too. Lot's of stuff: sci-fi, fantasy, etc. etc. Some are his, others by friends in the hobby.

That one is a model that I've often thought Dave could really make much better.  It is amazing how the Batmobile has changed through the years, between the different comic book variations, TV and then movie versions

I agree on both counts. I was too astonished about the multitude of versions. I'm currently building the 60's Batmobile by Claudio Diaz and when I went through some reference pics I realized that it was first dull/matte black - very much like the modern Batmobiles. Still I like the decorative one too. I used to have a Corgi version of it - now people are auctioning the original one at a prize nearly £200.   :o

yes...I have always thought about doing some more Batmobiles.
Especially the original style 1940s cars.

One day...


anyway, Tappi, I changed the title of this thread to Batman,
for anything Batman related.

...

and of course, my own Batmobiles,
available here: http://davesdesigns.ca/cutandfold/html/starcarz.html#STARCARZ

the 1989 Batmobile (Tim Burton - Michael Keaton movie)



and the Tumbler (Batman Begins)

1960' Batmobile

Looking forward your early Batman stuff when you get to it. The title is more appropriate and now we can stash everything here. Since it already got mentioned - the 60's Batmobile - so I guess it's in order to link the model too. Claudio Dias from PaperInside.com has the model:

http://paperinside.com/batman/1966-batmobile/



He also has a nice Tumbler. Bigger than Dave's version (harder to build too) - go check it out if you're into later Batmobiles.

Hi I am new to this forum and my question is has anyone else made the Tumbler with the 44 pages how big is it? meaning length and width  by Terrordon.  If my thinking is correct the one below the original batmobile had an issue when i tried to download it  my display said site corrupted but this was 1yr ago. i am trying to convert Tumbler from paper to Sodacan model any info would be great

well, if you look at his finished build photos...
based on the cutting mat you can see, the Tumbler appears to be about 12" long when completed.
Proportional width would be maybe 8"?

Both links work and the models are there.
Download them and take a look at the parts.
As I told you earlier, these are complicated models.

Apparently Zack Snyder has released this "teaser" of the new Batmobile
to be seen in the upcoming Man of Steel II (Superman vs Batman) movie.
I cleaned it up a bit...one thing I can make out is twin moving vertical Bat Wings
very reminiscent of the very early comic book styles and the car in Batman Forever.

Zack...I need more, if you expect me to make a KoolWheelz version!

Well, it reminds me of Jan Rukr's Aliens Service Robot, the version with the tarp on it



But I'd prefer one without the tarp
