This is the Batmobile I grew up with and I've wanted to model it for a long time. I have the Horizon resin kit stashed away somewhere, but this Polar Lights die cast kit made it much easier to have a bubble top Batmobile of my very own. This particular kit was built for Mark Waid and he wanted it to match the comic book blue as closely as possible, so I had to disassemble the factory assembled parts, paint the body and reassemble the whole thing. Everything else was assembled and painted like a standard kit. I think it turned out pretty well.
