LEGO Arkham Knight Batmobile 03

A LEGO model based on the batmobile from Rocksteady's video game Batman: Arkham Knight. The canopy and the exhaust (a 3x3 hollow cone) are 3D-printed. The wheels can spread out to enter tank mode, just like in the game.

I focused a lot on the overall appearance and likeness, which is what I'm most satisfied with, and it was fun to figure out different construction solutions to make it look right. However, it means structural integrity has been set aside for several parts.

The mechanism making the batmobile unfold into tank mode isn't perfect either, it's a bit flimsy and the construction makes the batmobile a bit clunky at the underside. I realized that the "legs" should move mostly outward and not so much downward, which adds to the clunkiness. I couldn't get the mechanism to raise up the turret either, so it has to be mounted separately. The mechanism consists of a few gearwheels and they move by using an external "key" to turn a worm wheel, which prevents the gearwheels from moving unintentionally, but also means you need to turn the key several times to reach the end position.
