Batmobiles


Comparison shots of the Ankrum and 1966 Batmobiles.


You can see how big the Ertl Batmobile is in this photo.


The Bat.


I don't like the flat black, looks to military and not Batman enough.


The classic 1966 Batmobile, Batman, and Batcopter, and Robin.

I've also got the(Matchbox size) ERTL Batmobile (from the Keaton movies) and they DID make a larger version than the one in 1/64th.

The bigger one is around 4 inches long and has a "driver" inside.
I have the ERTL BATWING aircraft as well with a 5 inch wingspan and retractable landing gear.
There is a Batman "pilot" inside the cockpit.

Both seem to be REALLY close to being 1/72nd scale, too.
That would make a diorama REALLY cool.
(Now...how to construct Gotham Cathedral...lol)

Very good pictures.
Carry on.

Here's a website you might find fun to check out:

Also, that larger ERTL Batmobile (1989) says it's 1/43rd scale...I dunno...a figure that scale might be a bit cramped inside. And after figuring the scale differences, the REAL Batmobile would (and is) be over TWELVE FEET long...take that down to 1/72nd, and 4 inches comes pretty close.

Carry on.

Gotham Cathedral? I am still working on the Batcave.

So far I have about 2 each of 20 versions of the Batmobile. That may be enough, even for me.
