My first attempt at the 1990s animated Batmobile. The canopy slides forward on two technic bars to reveal a cockpit suitable for the Batman minifig.
About this creation
A follow-up to my previous Batmobile. This time I've decided to give the ol' BTAS Batmobile a go. The streamlined look of the 1990s animated series made this project come together relatively smoothly. Still, no build is without its bumps, and the BTAS Batmobile is no exception.
Getting the canopy to slide forward on this car proved considerably more challenging than it had with my previous Batmobile. I wanted the canopy to slide smoothly forward without creating a noticeable ridge on the surface of the car (studs aside). To achieve this, I spent a bit of time fiddling with a slide mechanism that allows the canopy to lift up 1 plate before sliding forward on 2 technic bars. Fortunately, the mechanism works quite well, allowing for Batman's easy entry/exit from the cockpit.
