It is here and I admit a bit late. This entry was drafted a couple of months ago but I couldn’t wait for the transkit in the works from GreenStraweberry for this awesome kit. This is the Batmobile from Moebius Models kit # 964. The wait for the transkit was well worth it. The Moebius kit is the Batmobile as seen in Batman vs Superman and as a standalone, it is a superb kit of the CGI and practical full scale model it represents. As with all kits from Moebius, the build is very straightforward with very easy to follow instructions.

The kit is very detailed straight from the box but there’s definitely room to go with extra detail. I even omitted parts 7 and 8 and used them modified with real springs from my local ACE. It was a bit of a hassle to install the rear L/R wings but not because of fit problems. As with any other model kits and my friend Benny the cab driver from Total Recall, there are times I wish I had 3 hands.

To avoid postponing this entry longer, the dashboard has no LED lights. But thanks to the model design, there was no cement involved as the fit of the upper and lower half of the car was a perfect. This will give me the opportunity to come back later on and add light to the dashboard. With the transkit from GreenStrawberry, we get the option of building this Batmobile with one or both roof entry doors in the open position.┬áDupli-Color Universal Metallic Black (BUN0090) which is more like a gun metal color was used to paint all the main body parts. There’s no much sheen on the lifesize movie prop so I decided to leave the model with no clear coat on it.

Our initial thoughts on this model was posted exactly 1 year ago here when we first received the sample. Very nice kit to build and heavy thanks to the large tires. Highly Recommended build!

Note from the Author
My sincere thanks to Frank Winspur from Moebius Models for sending this kit in as well as providing an early sample so the transkit could have been made.
