An update for my 4-wide tumbler with a new front, new flaps on the rear end and a camouflage version.
About this creation
After some other projects now it's time for a 4-wide, again. I already finished an intermediate version in MOCtober but then I was busy with NnoVVember, the CS Pocket Money Contest and some more models that had been waiting to be posted...
Well here it is, Version 1.2 of my 4-wide Tumbler, and
- TADAA -
This time I made a camouflage version, too :-))
It was very hard to find all the needed parts in tan or reddish brown. I made seven (!) BrickLink orders until I had all of the parts I needed. The most difficult parts to get were the tan side panels. I could have bought a small LEGO set for the money I paid for these. But they look so cool! ;-))
Some changes on the front: The Tumbler now has the double front windows and the "nose" section looking a lot more like the original. I had the idea to use the large tile from Chris Rogers' Tumbler. His Tumbler is bigger, but the look is very similar.
And a little change on the rear end: The hinge plates I used for the 1x2 flaps on the previous versions didn't exist in tan or brown, so I looked for a new way to build them. The new ones are even more flexible, they now can tilt and turn a few degrees.
Side view: Mainly the changes on the front stand out.
The camouflage version only, it's the model from "Batman Begins":
"Does it come in black?" - Of course, it does! ;-))
This is V1.2 of my 4-wide Lego Tumbler Batmobile.
I hope you like it :-))
Quoting Quad ?????
Nice job. Next job: maybe make them with rollable wheels?
Oh, the wheels DO roll, but with some more friction than usual due to the "illegal" connection of the round brick on a Technic pin. Using the rear rims with Tiny Turbo tires on the front you even get a "legal" connection with really fine rolling wheels. But then they just don't look so cool. Adding a lightsabre blade as an axle it almost becomes playable for kids (see http://images.mocpages.com/user_images/80625/13311616547_SPLASH.jpg).
