R.I.P. Fan Of Bats (Doug Switz) Sad news

It is with great sadness and shock that I have to report that Doug Switz, (FanofBats on the forums) passed away on February 15.

Doug was an amazing craftsman, a gentle, caring soul and a good friend. His sister Jennifer just emailed me that Doug was walking and collapsed. The doctors reported "natural causes".

He was a massive Bat-Fan, and a great asset to our hobby and community. He contributed much to what Pimp My Batmobile offered in the past few years.

He will be missed.

I will post a more thorough eulogy on PMB as soon as I can process this tragic news and collect some of Doug's work to showcase.

I knew Doug mostly from his many posts on the George Reeves Appreciation page on Facebook. He was tireless in his efforts to expose those who claimed to be selling "authentic" costumes and other artifacts from the Adventures of Superman TV show but were only selling fake reproductions. He was very passionate in his distain for anyone trying to make a buck by defrauding innocent victims of thousands of dollars spent on fakes. Doug was a crusader in his own right and should be applauded for not cowering to the Lex Luthors of the world. He stood up for the little guy and for that, he will always be a hero to me! I will miss you brother!
