The Steamer, now complete and ready for the road.

Seven months is a long time and longer than expected on completing this project. There were a few problems mainly with the weight and having to fit a drive system. The Steamer can now move under its own power but the radio control system that operates it is still not as I want it. Later in the year I will change this for a joystick control system so it can be driven more like a real car.
new LED lighting has been fitted on the underside and new harness points to winch it up onto the truck. The Animatronic Bat man is now programmed and will react to movement in the cockpit. 
I will eventually get around to painting the tyres with rubber when the weather gets warmer and the liquid covering will dry quicker, not a chance at the moment in the constant rain.
To comply with PLI a visible external kill switch has now been fitted and fire extinguisher inside the cockpit.
The Steamer has been out and about on the back of the truck and is now ready for the onslaught of public events.
Time to start designing the next one.
