Johnny Lightning produced four 1/64th scale Batman related kits back in 2002. We've already posted the 1940s Batmobile and the Gyrocopter. Today we're looking at the 1960s Batboat. The major components are usually die-cast metal while smaller parts are plastic - either polystyrene or a more flexible vinyl type. The exception is this kit wherein nearly the entire trailer is plastic. The major die-cast components are held in place with screws tightened down by the screwdriver provided in each package however the provided screwdrivers are generally not very good as they don't grip the screw well enough and they're too short to get adequate leverage. I always use a jewelers screwdriver to handle these jobs. Although assembly is relatively straightforward, read the instructions first.BUT take note as often times steps are omitted! Enjoy!

The dashboard needs to be bent forward when installing it in the hull bottom
The teeny screwdriver provided is quite inadequate...
...use a jewelers or other quality screwdriver to assemble the top hull to the bottom
Installing the winch was entirely omitted from the directions
The hole in front trailer wheel needs to be reamed out slightly, otherwise there's a good chance that the mounting peg on the trailer will break
The twin motors mount good enough without glue but you may want to glue them in just in case
No flashy graphics but a nice little boat just the same.
