ANOTHER FANTASY KIT FROM AMT, THE 1:25 scale Bat-Missile depicts a machine seen briefly in a Batman movie of a quarter-century ago.
Mat Irvine: This is a reissue of the vehicle that appeared in Batman Returns of 1992. At one point in the movie, the Batmobile morphs into this Bat-Missile version, basically by throwing off outer panels and twisting the double wheels, to become an slender eight-wheeler.
The resulting vehicle bears scant resemblance to the Batmobile, though. Really, it’s just the cockpit and air intake that remain recognisable.
The finished model (pictures below) is reasonably detailed, with suspension coils looking particularly convincing.
Backdrop assembly is straightforward (below).
Assembled length: 250 mm (10 in)
Manufacturer’s ref: AMT952
Thanks to Round 2 for the sample kit.
