  • Batmobile ?

    Did the HO scale Aurora Batmobile, #1385.... bottom copper plate... come with solid ribbits or with holes in the ribbits?
    It seems that most pics. that I looked at there were solid ribbits.

    The Aurora Batmobile was made from 1967 to1970. I am not certain when Aurora switched from solid to hollow rivets. I bought a very early T-Jet when they first came out and I can't recall if that had solid rivets, my T-Jets from the '60s were all stolen, so I don't know which rivets any of those had. If I had to guess I believe that the Batmobiles had hollow rivets.
    If I am feeling ambitious I will e-mail Bob "Mr. Aurora" Beers to find out what he knows about the Aurora rivet situation.

      Thanks RichD most I looked at online had solid rivets.
      although I didn't know they made them more than one year.

        Cars sold online might not be completely original. Some of the Batmobiles could even be Johnny Lightning Batmobile bodies on an Aurora chassis or an Aurora Batmobile body from a hollow rivet chassis.
        I only have one solid rivet car and I got that as a race prize.
        I will have to contact Bob Beers!

          Thanks RichD, I found the one I was looking for at the show today.
          Bob Beers was at the show. I had already purchased the batmobile,...... finally.

            I see that the Batmobile that you bought has hollow rivets.
