When it comes to movie Batmobiles, few versions are quite as iconic as the extra-long, jet engine powered model from the Tim Burton films. This sleek, finned creation by Riskjockey manages to combine luxury and high tech with its smooth curves, intake vents, sliding canopy and those giant signature batfins. The use of arches for the side intake vents is one of my favorite part usages. It’s also worth noting the subtly angled headlight assemblies on either side of that lovely jet engine intake on the front.
No matter what you might have thought of the 2013 sci-fi film Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise, you can admit it featured some sweet tech. From the electric motorbike, to the huge water hoovers, to that giant upside-down pyramid, the film’s visuals were stunning. One of the most iconic vehicles was the super-maneuverable light plane which was quickly nicknamed the Bubble Ship. This stunning model by Riskjockey captures the stark, delicate visual aesthetic from the film, including swiveling landing gear. I love the smooth engine pods and the clever use of the new gyro-sphere and hatch from the Jurassic World theme for the cockpit.
Another nice part use is the large triangular panels used to create the geometric symmetry of the fuselage of the ship.
