Tumbler Batmobile (4-wide)
My 4-wide version of the iconic Tumbler Batmobile from the Chris Nolan Batman movies
About this creation
I wanted to built a 4-wide Tumbler for a long time, but I didn't have an idea how to arrage the wheels. I wanted to have the 4 seperate rear wheels clearly visible. After seeing George G's Micro Tumbler I had an idea and built the first chassis. After a while I built the preview model. Then I ordered some parts to complete it.

Compared to the preview version I've made some minor changes on the model:
- Black parts wherever possible. As Bruce Wayne said: "Does it come in black?"
- Chrome wheels on the rear end (the original has aluminium rims with black)
- An additional pair of flaps (1x1) on the rear end
- A modified front cover
- A slightly modified windshield

You want to see some more pictures? No problem:





Rear view: Three pairs of flaps on the rear end



Bottom view: The 4-wide base. The total width is more than 4 studs (even a little more than 5 studs), but the chassis is 4-wide.

The front: Additional axle as an option to reinforce the front

The original look: Wheels attached to the side panels



The flaps on the rear end

Each flap can be moved independently to stabilize the vehicle during a big jump.

A tough decision for the Dark Knight: "Hmm, which ride do I take today...?"

Bonus picture: My 4-wide movie car collection (so far): Tumbler, 1989 Batmobile, K.I.T.T. (model 2000), BTTF DeLorean and 007 Esprit S1 in submarine and car mode

So this is my 4-wide LEGO Tumbler Batmobile from the Chris Nolan Batman movies. I hope you like it :-))

There are a few more 4-wide Tumblers out there: Apple Pie has built two of them with a 6-wide rear axle in 2008. George G's Micro Tumbler looks like it's 4-wide, too. And Nathaniel Vendt has built a 5-wide (?) Mini Tumbler in 2008 with a rear end quite similar to my one.

Perfect! The best small scale Tumbler I've seen, i don't think you could get more accurate at this scale. I especially like the front:)

Malte, Sven, Gabor, Nick, Peteris, Vinny, Tom and Jared: Thanks for your comments, I'm glad you like it, too ;-) Hmm, there are still missing about 30 likes in the counter, I hope they can be recounted one day... This is one of my favourite own models and I'd like to see it on its place in the top 3.

Quoting Hot Rod (btw: you forget to mention Zeto Vince one, who's, for me the best Tumbler of Mocpages!
I totally agree: Zeto's is the best one I've seen. But it's bigger than 4-wide. There are a lot of great Tumblers out there: There is Fogtod's Technic Tumbler, Chris Roach has made a great one, too, DeTomaso has made a cool 6-wide, ... I could go on and on and still forget one :-))

Quoting Hot Rod Where do you from in Germany? because I'm going 3 weeks in "Würzbourg" from this Sunday! :D
By car it's about 5 hours away from my home. Hannover or Berlin is much closer. You want to know where I live? I'm Automotive Engineer and I work and live in a rather small town in the state of Lower Saxony. You have one guess where exactly ... ;-))

Fan. Tas. Tic. It absolutely equals Zeto's Tumbler in its scale IMHO. Awesome parts usage, very convincing shape. - Your collection of movie cars is fantastic, too. You should build some kind of museum or presentation stage for them. One is missing, though, a certain black and white sedan with Illinois plates ;-) - Nils, wärst du so nett und schickst mir eine Elektropost? Meine Adresse findest du auf meiner Heimseite hier (ganz unten). Würde mich freuen.

Hi Nils. I am fine thanks and very pleased I have restarted the gt40 :). I love all of these cars especially your updated tumbler. The flaps and new shiny wheels look great. James bond's lotus looks so good I will have a closer look later. Talk soon. Don't forget to add it to the bricks of steel group. :)
