This is the Black Bat Commando. I decided to make this at 50% smaller. The original dimensions are 16-1/2" Long x 7-1/4" Wide x 6-3/4" Thick.

You can see the small carpenter square I put down beside the car. I just didn’t want such a big car.

One good thing about half scale you can use a lot of scrap wood.

When I printed the plans I selected the custom scale and typed in 50. This worked quite well and when I measured the 3” printer scale it came out exactly to 1-1/2”.

This is the first half scale I have done and it came out so well I will most likely do it again.

Thanks for lookin’

I love this. This is the size that I should have made with the original plan set-which is a little big for a lot of folks.

I did the same thing when the plan came out. Reduced it to 50% and it is one of my best sellers st shows.
