1966 Batmobile 50th Anniversary set 'Cartboard Crusaders'

The 1966 Batmobile and Gotham scenery, to Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the television series that's coming up...

The car is relatively small with it's 7 stud wide build-up, yet big enough to hold 2 minifigures. Those figures can be placed and removed without taking off any part. I build this car with loads of playfeatures the original car also had: Atomic Turbine Engine, Bat-Radar, Rocketlaunchers, opening decklid to reveal the Mobile Crime Computer, Bat-shutes, Chainslicer in the nose, as well as a Bat-a-Ram, Aluminum dashboards, and last but not least, the Bat-Phone.

I'm still trying to get hold of some pieces: Red technic pin bricks (to mimic the Bat-logo wheelhubs). Two 2x4 33° rooftile pieces to replace 4 1x2 cheeseslopes on each frontfender.

The backdrop.
I picked a scene I instantly remember when reminiscing about the show: Batman and Robin walking the walls vertical yet very horizontal, in kind of a creepy very close together choreographed manner... But that's what made the show so fun to watch. Always a citizen in an open window. This time it's the beautifull Catwoman.

Or is it...

It happens to be a mannequin disguised as Catwoman to lure our Caped Crusaders into the Jokers trap. The Joker is standing on top of the building ready to cut the line...

Because of this fake building (in this MOC, and in the tv series) I gave this project the name:
'Cartboard Crusaders'.

Here you can see all of the featured gadgets this car has for maximum playability:
Atomic Turbine Engine, Bat-Radar, Rocketlaunchers, opening decklid to reveal the Mobile Crime Computer, Bat-shutes, Chainslicer in the nose, as well as a Bat-a-Ram, Aluminum dashboards, and last but not least, the Bat-Phone.

You're NOT getting away this time Joker!
