PC is back up and running!

Stay tuned... the origin of the 1966 Batboat is imminent!

Hello Darren,

I posted this "Help" message on several on-line modeling B.B.s, and on The Clubhouse Forum, I received a post that you might be the guy who can help me out.

Here is my original post:


I've begun working on Polar Lights' Batboat, and am zeroing in on that most elusive blue color scheme for it.

I have the Batman Movie, (which has 2 scenes of the Batboat), and have viewed it twice to date. However, in those 2 scenes, either the Batboat appears to be Dark Blue: .

Or, it appears to be a lighter shade of blue:

In addition, in a recent picture I obtained from a friend, this blue is a lighter, iridescent color, with the center portions of the upper hull, along with part of the seating compartment being the darker blue shade:

Upon analyzing the Batboat found in that last pic I discovered that it was a different boat - (Those white ovals found on the lower hull are different from the Batboat found in the Movie).

Anyway, I realize that I am (probably???) being waaay too picky and Anal-Retentive here. However, before I proceed, I'd REALLY like to hammer this color scheme problem out as best I can.

(Anyone have any thoughts on its color?)

Thanks in advance.

Dark Metalic Blue as seen on the photo of the 1966 V-143 Jetflite somewhere on this blog.

Good luck. How the Batboat appears in photos all depends on the lighting and angle among other things.

Cool blog...

The dark metallic blue is a very educated guess but I am 90% sure it was that color.
