    Circuit Breaker (G1 Marvel comics). Made from an Elseworlds Batgirl, a lot of sanding, a lot of masking tape, and an airbrush. She was painted silver first, masked the circuit pattern, then painted flesh tone.

    I used 1/4" ans 1/16" masking tape I found at my local hobby shop. Can probably order online. It's great for stripes.

    Really nice clean work - I like the detail on the base as well.

    Always one of my favorite G1 human characters.

    Awesome work, very smooth painting, and the fact that you did the base as well really makes the art pop.

    I get frustrated taping off the windows of a car...you must have the patience of a saint! The lines look great and I'm glad you shared with us how you did it. Maybe I will muster up enough guts to do some pin striping on one of my cars. Thanks again for sharing.

    That looks really nice. Did you use Tamiya tapes? I swear, those are the best.

    I believe it was Tamiya tape. The hobby shop closed down afterwards, so I'll have to find it on-line next time.

    It did test my patience, especially living in a humid climate - the tape kept coming off.

    I've thought about the other Neonights, but they are not near as interesting!
