1966 TV Playset Yvonne Craig Batgirl Figure WIP

admin 12 Comments

Just mixing up some of my trusty paint recipe for Yvonne’s costume, and I realized I had to reduce the scale of the sparkle flakes yet again. Hard enough to find the right flake size for 1:6 scale but now for 1:30 – 1:25 it’s an even bigger challenge. Or should I say an even tinier one?

Anyway, I found a smaller micro-scale glitter and have been doing some base coats to this beautiful, tiny figure. Next up – all the satin and hair effects. Then the face. More photos as we go.

    Kevin,

    I hope you didn’t think I was taking a shot at you bud, I just found it funny that we haven’t had a nice Batgirl sculpt in ages, and now all of a sudden we have two very nice ones being painted by the both of you at the same time!

    And let me say, it is a great time to be a Yvonne Craig Batgirl fan! These are two of the nicest YC sculpts I’ve ever seen. I’ll be adding my build-up notes and recipe info on the Scooter’s Custom Works site. (That’s where all my non-Batmobile stuff is supposed to be…)
