The Bat is an easy clone to do. Semroc has all of the parts:

And Gordy has the decal:

Thanks -- I didn't realize that someone was making reproduction decals.

I would also really like an original kit if someone out there has one.

Don't go there for decals!
I closed that web site.

Look around for whatever else you need. I charge $6.50 flat rate shipping on all orders no matter how big or small.

An original will be tough to find. The Bat came into the catalog in 1981 and went OOP in 1984. Given the ebay-nalaity (goes with Lin-sanity) you may pay a pretty penny.

Which is VERY puzzling! The Estes Bat sold for 3 years and I have seen it go for as little as $15 and up to $130!

Yet the rarer Centuri Bat-Roc, that was only sold through Rocket Times, sells for far less! I got one off ebay for around $50 years back, Go Friggin Figure!

Personally I am not fond of either kit. I guess some people just go crazy for those bat-like fins!

I loved this kit and have a clone. I'm working on a 3" upscale. For those who want to do their own decals I've attached the files. Good flying

Its been a while since I posted, so I thought I'd check if anyone out there happens to have come up with a kit they wouldn't mind parting with? Contact me at coopwyo@yahoo.com Thanks!
