The four massive rear tyres and two smaller fronts are set on an unconventional suspension system, designed so that in the movie, the front wheels, with associated bits and pieces, can convert instantly into the single-seat Bat Pod. The rear section (below) I finished in gloss (rather than matt) black, with silver trim.

Incidentally, the release of the Moebius Tumbler kit means that now the modeller has all five TV and movie Batmobiles, made to the same 1:25 scale. There’s the original TV George Barris-modified Lincoln Futura version from Polar Lights, the first new movie version from AMT, the second and third movie versions from Revell, with the quintet now completed by the Moebius release.
Tumbler ‘on the road’, in a diorama I built to represent Gotham City, built VFX-style, by kit-bashing various kits and spare parts. Weathering treatment, plus plenty of stains and rust add to the overall effect.
There’s an interesting self-referral fact about the Tumbler kit. The original design was created primarily by production designer Nathan Crowley, along with director Christopher Nolan, by kit-bashing existing model car kits - Hummers. Lamborghinis and the like. This was done in Nolan’s garage, located in the shadow of the famed Los Angeles HOLLYWOOD sign. In all, Crowley and Nolan came up with around half a dozen concepts, before the final design was handed over to the special effects department.
Convincing kit of a popular Batman accessory. Well worth building if you like the subject matter, and despite the complexity, not difficult to assemble well.

If you want something a little smaller, Bandai has a Tumbler in 1:35 scale. This is perhaps an odd choice, as 1:35 is normally a military scale, but as the movie Tumbler also appears in camouflage markings at one point, an AFV-scale Tumbler could make sense, especially if you want to match the movie version's camo scheme and weaponry.
