Batman Scenery Review - GCPD SWAT Van and Gotham Phone Booths


With the Batman Game growing in popularity since the Rulebook release, a lot of people are asking online about building tables.
With that in mind, I thought it was about time I put together some reviews on the Gotham MDF Scenery now available from Knight Models.

First up are the GCPD SWAT Van and Gotham Phone Booths.



Both of these kits come in laser cut MDF sheets. These are packed in clear bags with a Batman logo topper.
They also both include instruction sheets so you know where all the bits go.


Each set consists of two sheets of MDF. The Phone Booths are one per sheet and also include a sheet of clear acrylic each but the SWAT van is much bigger so covers two sheets on its own.
When removing the pieces, each has small tabs holding it in so its worth running around the edge with a craft knife first.
Watch out for very thin sections on the front edge of the van sides and long parts of the Gotham Telephone parts. If you are a little heavy handed they could easily break.

Once all the parts are removed, its time for some building! PVA glue is the best for these.


Both of these kits are fairly simple builds. They will take a little time thought as you will want to wait for the PVA glue to hold before moving onto the next part.
There are a couple of bits to watch out for.
On the van you will need to clip off the bottom corner of each door as it sticks into the wheel arch and the door then won't close fully.
For the Phone Booths, build the bottom and the sides first. Once dry, file down the pins on top as they are a tight fit. It would also be a good idea to paint it first before putting the glass in and gluing the top section on.



Once finished these both look great. The etched detail on the side of the van is fantastic and will make painting it a lot easier.
Above is a scale shot next to Origins Batman and Killer Croc. Neither piece is small!

On Wayland Games the Phone Booths cost £5.06 for the two and the SWAT van is £8.62.
With the size and detail I think they are more than reasonable prices.

Time for some scores.

SWAT Van - 9/10 Badger Points

Phone Booths - 7/10 Badger Points

Will you be picking up either of these kits?

  1. The Swat van looks cool and is big enough that will also break significant lines of sight. I guess it will also offer height for things like the Batclaw. Nice piece of kit.
