Batwing-Dawn of Justice-Moebius Models
« on: Sun Sep, 17, 2017, 06:43:PM »
Next build here at the workshop is the Batwing from "Dawn of Justice" by Moebius


There are a LOT of parts for this one, along with a couple of different build options







Most of the sub-assemblies went together fairly quickly.
Opted to build this with gear up, in vtol mode, with rockets deployed.
Won't be putting in a pilot due to the way the cockpit tub is molded





With the joints that will be glued later masked off with putty, I gave the major pieces a base coat of flat black




The major pieces were then given a coat of Krylon's 'Charcoal Metallic' in lieu of my usual 'Graphite Dust'



Cockpit was given a coat of light grey, with the seat getting a coat of red.
Cockpit was then given a black wash for detail, with the screens picked out in black

Picked out the VLS openings in light grey, along with the weapon bay doors
Gave it all a black wash and then went for final assembly

Finished build pics:

Very cool. I haven't seen the movie, but those vehicles are pretty cool looking

I like what you've done with them

Looks good. Question.

1. What scale is this kit?
2. What is the exact length and breadth of the actual fuselage?
