Studio Scale Batwing
 
I've been sent a casting of the filming model which I'm going to clean up, re-detail, then mold and cast it. Would anyone be interested in kits of this?

Kuhn Global 01-19-2008 12:14 PM

I am considering this! :) If you are the one doing the cleanup and casting then I know it will be top notch. ;)

What are the dimensions?

ave4uevoli 01-19-2008 02:21 PM

it has about a 30" wingspan - pretty large. You know you want one Kuhn..get it get it.. (i'm getting one too). Your bluescreen is calling to it!.... geetttt the batwing.... geeeettttt the batttwing...

ave4uevoli 01-20-2008 06:42 PM

Rel,I have two more very interested people on the batman forums. still waiting for more people to chime in

talon 01-20-2008 09:20 PM

Which one? The Tim Burton Batman Movie version, or the fucking ugly joel-schumacher-should-never-be-allowed-to-touch-a-reel-of-film "batwing?"

REL 01-21-2008 07:05 AM

It's the '89 Tim Burton one.

ave4uevoli 01-21-2008 07:17 AM

lucky for us too.. talon might have had to kill someone if the schumacher one was made. Though, I agree with you, batman 3 and 4 were horrible - but some of the props were nice =)

If the "Batwing" and "Batmobile" were for a different movie, then they would have been fucking awesome. On they're own they are awesome designs. but for BATMAN, they're fucking terrible. They said, okay, forget all the stealth, forget all the secrecy, lets put a hundred fucking neon lights on the car and plane, light it up like a christmas tree, and then "try" and catch criminals in the act. They'd see him coming when he fucking left the cave. In addition ANYONE could follow him and find out where the cave is. and neon tubes on the tommy guns, I mean, come on. REALLY??!

Bol loD 01-22-2008 04:33 PM

Is it this one?

ave4uevoli 01-22-2008 04:55 PM

yea - that's the one. The one in the above picture is a "master" of the batwing... it might even be one of the originals.

Rel: i'm sending you a package tomorrow with batman figures for the cockpit - and the cd that contains as many reference pictures that I could find - (it includes the one above)

droplite 01-23-2008 03:33 PM

I too maybe interested in this.

Now for the nasty bit... any idea of price?

Never ask REL for the price until he's almost done with the master. He'll usually ignore the question and at best you might get an "IDK"

droplite 01-23-2008 04:06 PM

My bad........ :doh:

Thanks for pointing that out for me. ;)

Still have an interest tho.

talon 01-23-2008 04:07 PM

:) I see it all the time and I'm sure he gets tired of it because every 5th post is a "how much?" post and he doesn't know. Its not that he'll get mad or anything, he'll just not answer it.

I can understand why too. It's like asking Ford how much a concept car will cost before they even have a production line set up.

droplite 01-23-2008 04:10 PM

True.

Still looking forward to see how much he tweaks it!

talon 01-23-2008 04:18 PM

It will look exactly like what you see on screen. REL is great at going over reference material and matching what is there. On the K'Tinga thread you'll notice he actually went out and bought a kit just to get a tiny piece in it that was used on the studio model

DaveP 01-23-2008 05:41 PM

I'm up for one.

Vos 03-16-2008 10:14 AM

I'm interested. I got robbed on Ebay for one of these and a SS Batmobile a few years ago. Lost almost $800. I'd still love them in my collection.

Heatray 04-17-2008 01:51 PM

I would be interested in one. Please post updates.

swfan 04-18-2008 05:22 AM

Agreed! Though I know that you are one busy guy...lol

ignatz 05-13-2008 10:15 AM

I might be interested in one of these! The Batwing is one of my favorite vehicles. Anton Furst did a wonderful job doing the production design for the movie. Any idea on the approximate "real-world" (reel-world?) scale of the miniature?

REL 05-15-2008 08:49 PM

I'm not sure of the scale of the model, it's pretty big though. I'm going to try and get it done by this summer, I'm going to redesign it so it's easier to build, and of course it will be cast in lightweight fiberglass rather than resin.

Re: Studio Scale Batwing
 
I am very interested in obtaining a kit, what's the current situation?? best regards

Re: Studio Scale Batwing
 
Good to hear that this may still be in the works.

Peagis 05-18-2009 12:53 PM

Re: Studio Scale Batwing
 
any news on this?

REL 05-19-2009 04:34 PM

Re: Studio Scale Batwing
 
No updates yet. But I have decided to 'idealize' this one. The casting has a lot of wonky symmetry, so I'm going to make everything symmetrical, then make a detailed cockpit, and separately cast missiles, machine guns etc.

Re: Studio Scale Batwing
 
I think it's supose to be 1/24 scale Rel

Re: Studio Scale Batwing
 
For those that are interested I've designed and built a full lighting kit for the batwing , I confess I made it for my ertl 1:25 scale model, but it will scale up to fit the SS Batwing, it includes Navlights, anti collision lights, plus the searchlights and front wing lights , light effects for the machine guns , nose cannons and the Vulcan 134 Machine Gun with a little bit of inginunity mini -servos can be added to the Vulcan gun to deploy it and a small motor to make it , rotate ditto the rockets . I will post a video as soon as I can work out how, any one interested can contact me , I'll make it up at cost parts and shipping

Hi Guys,

I thought you might be interested to see this, it is as described in earlier posts. The COA that came with it describes it as coming from the studio in the UK so a genuine production prop. I can't be sure it was ever filmed though. Not shown in this photograph is the cockpit tub with Batman figure and the canopy. The wing span is approx 26"
