Hot Wheels 1:18 Batmobile Mods: 1

admin 5 Comments

TPM Customs is the work of Tim Meyer, one of the Pimp My Batmobile development partners. Tim has created some nice high-end re-detailed Hot Wheels Batmobiles for a few clients and has had a couple on eBay as well.

In addition to helping develop many of the accessory parts for PMB, Tim also gets first shot at actually USING them for his car models! So his clients get some of the first ever upgrades ever seen for this car. If you have no interest in perforiming these mods yourself – you could get Tim to completely re-detail a 1:18 Hot Wheels Batmobile for you. I have to warn you – excellent modeling work does not come cheaply. If you are interested in having work done by TPM Customs, end us an email and visit TPM’s gallery of work HERE (coming soon)

Here are a few of his newest upgrades:

1. Chute details: Tim added metal tape, Jewelry wire and some gold metalic paint to accurize the chutes more like the #1 car.

2. Interior Details: Dash light array, start buttons, bat-ram lever and corrected Futura steering wheel are just a few of

 

 the interior mods Tim has been refining. (Hey are those figures?!)

3. Wheel Bat Spinners: This is one of the simplest yet most dramatic visual upgrades that can be done to the model. Getting the right season one spinners is as easy as removing the existing spinners and replacing them with photo etched metal spinners with vinyl, white-rimmed, color-matched emblems on top of the metal.

    I’m sorry but we can’t separate the hubs from the sheets. BUT we can sell you 3 sheets cheaper, Give us an email. OR you could see if some other modelers don;t need the hubs and share sets.
