This beacon cage was my longest continuous 3D print coming in around 38 hours. I found the 7" light at a local party store. I replaced all of the lights in these photos with my prop. This is the closest I've ever been to owning the greatest car in the world. It's only a light but you have to start somewhere!
I surprised myself by figuring out how many Batman '66 props that I have made in the past year and a half. I would have guessed it was around 25 to 30 but I am celebrating NUMBER FIFTY with this prop from around 38 episodes! I have run out of shelf space and most are piled on top of each other in boxes. I think I have a problem but I'm also about to buy my 3rd printer so I hope nobody's tired of them.
Thank you all for the comments, support and of course the reference photos! I love having a place to share these. This site and its members are totally responsible for these props!
Here's to the next 50!
I read up on the Tripp -Lite beacon and it says it is 7" tall and I found one the same height. I designed mine based on photo's from the #1 with these photos and more. Should be pretty accurate.

I have been very disappointed over the years that no one has made an accurate beacon cage that is properly detailed as to it's look, shape, and overall proportions to the original cage. There have been some very good fabrications as of late. Your looks nice, some detail missing but 99% better than most
I was curious what details I missed but looking back at these I see the triangle shapes at the top. Do you see anything else? I do plan on adding the black base ring to finish it off.
I don't like missing stuff. lol
