A journal of the history of the '60s Batman Batboat, how I came to buy a replica and my hopeful adventures in repairing and making it a functional Anti-Crime cruiser.
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:Hello, 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: http://media.photobucket.com/image/batboat/BatWings14/Batman%20TV%20and%20animated%20Characters/batboat.jpg?o=7 . Or, it appears to be a lighter shade of blue: http://media.photobucket.com/image/batboat/mick7504/Batboat.jpg?o=1 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: http://www.scififantmodmadrealm.com/Images/batboat3.jpg 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.
The dark metallic blue is a very educated guess but I am 90% sure it was that color.
