LEGO new 2016 Batmobile custom MOC

This was an unusual project for me, taking on a comic super heroes theme with a scratch-built MOC.  This is inspired by the 2016 (originally 2015, but delayed) Batman vs. Superman movie version of the Batmobile.  A couple official pictures of the thing were released earlier in the year, and a sprinkling of low-quality leaked photos have shown up as well.  None of the photos I had to work off showed the key body lines or proportions unobscured, so I had to do quite a bit of "filling in the blanks" and approximation to arrive at this model, all the while fighting the limitations of genuine LEGO pieces and "legal" building techniques.

Unfortunately, just before I "finished" this, new photos were leaked that show the clear angles I really needed in the first place, and those underscore just how poor of a replica attempt this really is.  Oh, well.
