    1/24 Polar lights Bat mobile - not

    Hi all well i had a problem with this when I started it, the paint reacted with the plastic and no amount of barrier coats or anything else seemed to sort it so I decided to just build it as best I could, but then found the decals fell apart and what didn't, didn't stay on when dry even whist spraying gloss coat on them to seal them the air from my airbrush blew them off so I stripped it all off again and decided to do something totally different I know the paintwork will never be great but hopefully the differing colours will help to hide it, so,,,, can you guess who drives a car like this.

    Hi all its been pointed out that I have the paint job wrong for mad max, I can't correct all the colour scheme (oil and cellulose don't mix) so, since this car was not in the film I used artistic licence.

    Hi all well this is as far as I'm going to get on this at the moment as I need some dry transfer letters but we're on holiday from Friday and I won't be ordering them till we get back I think that's all that needs doing on this now, I always knew the paintwork was never going to be great as that's why it's all the colours it is but I have to say I'm quite pleased how it's turned out.

    It must have been a huge car as in the last pic you can see its next to a 1/16 VW and it's longer, for a 2 seater car I think it must have been mahosive.
