Hi all the next update
Here is the standard weapon and the bat boat laser to replace it

Added some of the PE ( not sure whether to leave it as stainless or paint it red, just to add some interest instead of all black)

And more of the hated PE

The PE may be a pain, but it looks really good. I love the laser!

Great job Ken,

Really offbeat, but in a good way.

Cheers

Hi all here is the next update, almost done now I thought I would put the bat tank with it just to make it less boring.

Hi all as I said before attempting to get some models finished so I can devote all my attention to the ducati. This is nearly finished now (just the rigging to go) I've decided not to put the other lifeboats on (may even remove the ones on there and add something else) I've also decided not to paint the railings to add a bit more interest, if I change my mind they will be red, anyway here are pics of where I am now.





My next one to finish will be the Thermopylae.

Hi all well it's finally done being completely honest I think it's ended up looking very boring, I think I should have picked a different super hero, like the incredibles or maybe the fantastic 4 I would have weathered it with differing shades of black for the different panels as someone did suggest but I don't think I've ever seen a bat vehicle that wasn't perfectly matt black or perfectly gloss black. Anyway here it is, at sometime in the future maybe I will revamp in another colour scheme.

Hi Ken,

I see your point about the straight black paint - however, I don't agree your Bat Corvette looks boring!! That'S a pretty cool and crazy piece of creativity, many nice details you included! I really do like it!

Btw - good to see you back posting here!

Cheers,
Jan

I concur with Jan!

This is a pretty cool and creative bit of modelling Ken

And I like the 'all black' finish
