were built for Mark Waid to his specifications.
Mark is the writer on several current comics series,
most notably, the latest run on the Fantastic Four.
First is the reissued Batplane by Polar Lights. This was
painted Cobalt Blue
to get as close to the comic book color as possible, the
tacky Batman and
Robin heads included in the kit were left out and a new
scratchbuilt. No decals were applied, also to match the
look of the plane in
the comics. The final touch was a coat of Testors High
Gloss lacquer which
really gave the plane a deep shine.
