This is an older Custom. Her Boyfriend Booga came soon after. I've seen waaay better Tank-Girl's on here and may have to try this again sometime, but this Tank is made from a DC Hush Catwoman. I removed her ears and sanded and sculpted away any of her original costume minus the boots and choker. Sculpted the shirt and shorts out of Green stuff (had not yet discovered apoxy). Made her stockings out of Girls socks :) Sculpted her knee pads out of green stuff. Made the baseball bat by butting an old paintbrush, sculpted the end and cut the tip off of a nail and put it through it. Sculpted her hair, band aid (on forehead) and bow. Added an elastic strap to Catwomans goggles so they could be moved around on the head and neck. Used some dog-tag chain to make her necklace and sculpted the gloves, then gave it a paint job with citadel paints and sealed her with a matte finish and here she is, rough and tumble! I'd ordered the figure on eBay and when I got it one elbow joint was glued shut and one knee, so I just removed articulation from the elbows and knees, but she's still a toughy! P.S. By default I put 8 hours as the work duration because I never keep track and really have no idea, FYI! Thanks for lookin!

Sexy, the colouring of her makes her look so juicy and cool
it like seeing a girl for a bubble gum advert...
Awesome stuff I'd just wish this could be an official product for Tank Girl

Thank you so much I wish that, too. Getting to make a prototype for the people who created Tank-Girl and made her a Legend would be a dream come true.
