    after I have seen the last and the new Batman-Movie, I remembered the Tumbler Model of Cláudio Dias (Thanks for the nice cardmodel!). Here are some pictures of the model I build with some slight modifications. The next task is to create a porper diorama for the Tumbler. Thought about the Batcave ore something in that way...

    Claudio's rendering really captures the organic look of the "real" article. I'll bet your diorama will look great!

    wheelwork - realwork!

    I am trying two explain how I build the wheels.
    Begin with the frontwheel 1) . You have to scratch with a needle the tread profile into the surface of the frontwheel 2). If you scratch the Profile to deep, it may happens that the cardboard is become very thin. To prevent damages enforce the back of the inner tire with scotch tape 3). Now assemble the wheel by following the original instruction.
    The rear wheel: its a laborious task ! First assemble the wheels. 4) Then you have to print a lot of pieces tread profile - and cut all of them! 5) After cutting them you have to glue them to the wheel. 6) Last not least you have to do it like in the old stones-song: "Paint It Black" (mat black) :0)

    Well done! the tires look like they came off a rc car or something, you have a very nice eye for detail. I plan on building this someday and I hope mine turns out even half as well.:thumb:

    Okay, now I finished the Display!
    After I have seen "The Dark Knight" my decision was to build a Diorama in the red-light district. Here some Photos:

    front wheel arm armour shape

    im about 80% of my build into my tumbler, with prospects for building it twice the size and out of either metal or plastic...

    i only need help on the parts mentioned on step70 and 70a

    since the intended misshaping may be understood for some reasons,
    it is alsow evident that the front wheels are further apart.
    i would like to have an independently designed new accurate front plate armour.

    we dont need to edit claudio's original file, but to create a new part sheet of the 2 pairs of parts.

    here are some pix.
