    Here is my first attempt at scratchbuilding. I have wanted this Batmobile for a while now. I covered the wooden base with sheet styrene. I am very pleased with this. I had so much fun with this project that I am planning on doing more scratchbuilds!!
    I am kicking around the idea of a Tholian ship frm ST and the Galileo shuttle which the shuttle will be around 14-15" long. Not sure what scale that would be.

    Take a look and let me know what you think.

    I will be replacing the manifolds because my plan didn't pan out so when I figure out a better way I will make them and install them!!

    Thanks for looking!!

    That is one spiffy chunk of wood..very nice. I wish I could make one but don't have the time with everything else. The wheel details are great.
