This is a modified version of my car bed to kind of give it that batman look to it. It was built in February 2012. Unlike my normal car bed, I make this one more three dimensional. I build up the finders and the back fine. This give it a more realistic look and not so flat looking. I also put a little bend in the front cap.

Of you look closely I did something different on this one. I added the child’s name to the front license plate.

Very cool! I know he loves it. I would have loved a bed like that when I was a kid. Heck, I wouldn’t mind one now. Nice job dressing it up too.
