    Boba Fett Pre-Pro #2 (PP2) Helmet Stencils

    Finally started to do the PP2 helmet paint stencils. This is a tricky one, mainly because the lack of more reference images and the existing ones are not the best. But I do my best to get the best results. The colors used are based on the existing images and may not be what others used on their helmets.

    So here are the stencils. The color separation will come after I finish all the stencils (or by request).

    -----------------------------
    Update 11-05-2011
    -----------------------------
    The color separation files were added. The colors used are based on SpideyFett's ROTJ and PP2 color scheme but not 100% accurate. The Sandy Rose color for the mandibles is a found color (at this site Colour Lovers - Sandy Rose) as I was seraching for it's HTML code which is #AA7D7A (I don't know how accurate is this, but is better than nothing).

    -----------------------------
    Update 12-05-2011
    -----------------------------
    Added the Dome Top Area to guide you (with some approximation) on how to adjust the top scratches.

    -----------------------------
    Update 16-03-2012
    -----------------------------
    All files were replaced with new and improved ones.
    70% of the dome's scratches were redone from scratch and the remaining scratches were modified and improved. The red face area was modified also, especially the front part and the ears area, but other areas were also corrected. Both cheeks and the right back plate was redone from scratch.
    -----------------------------

    -----------------------------
    Update 25-03-2012
    -----------------------------
    Added archived separation files in JPG format for those who want to edit or alter the stencil's dimensions.
    -----------------------------

    Note that the crayon mark on the dome, across the right arrow is an optional feature. Some of the images show the helmet with this mark while other images doesn't have the crayon at all.

    And here is (as superjedi has named this) the 'Bantha herd trampled helmet' to serve you as a template to fit all the scratches.

    Note that the old file is left just for improvement comparison.

    Have fun with these files!

    Re: Boba Fett PP2 Helmet Stencils

    Thanks a lot boys for the encouragement! I'm working on the red face (as I like to say to the mandible-visor-ear-rim area) and it looks awsome so far.

    Here's a teaser of it:

    Updated the first post with the red face stencil. Not a perfect one, mostly because of the poor images with the back and side views of the helmet.

    If I die from exhaustion, I will come back from the dead to finish the stencils. But that's not the case... Because of real life I have the impression that I'm moving too slow with the stencils. I want to see them finished, but must wait with patience.

    Finally I managed to do the Dome stencils. This was by far the hardest and most complex of all (PP1 and ESB). I need to rest my eyes for a couple of days until I do the color separation. I hope you like the stencils.

    I told you! But they look awesome, I give you my permission to have a rest Just a tip, the white at the dent are scratches, the white drops at the left of your stencil, is unweathered silved (masked until the helmet is finished), and you see it white because of the flash washing it, keep that in mind

    Thanks a lot, KaanE! I know this isn't a perfect one, but because of the poor quality of the images is hard to tell sometimes which are the right scratch colors... In one image a particular scratch is light gray while in other image is dark gray. But everyone will use the color combination they think is the right one.

    As you can see, the grey was applied just on a few spots and a really light coat, so... if the light is straight on the grey it looks lighter, and if not, it looks darker Also a light grey weathering was applied all over the helmet.

    I might be wrong on this, but I noticed that the dent on PP2 is smaller than on the other helmets. It can be clearly seen the contour of the original dent.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong...

    You're wrong and not. The PP#2 dent is smaller than the PP#3, or ESB, because you know all of the dents were scratchbuilt and attached to supertrooper helmets. So yes, it's smaller (and also sharper), but it's not what you think it is, the yellow line is just a shadow, not the "original" dent.

    If you look on the uncleaned GMH you will see the same mark of a partially filled dent. My guess is that they initially wanted a bigger dent and used a template to cut out the hole then they did a smaller scratch made dent and filled the remaining part.

    I made a more profound compare of the ESB and PP2 dent and it's form and size match.

    That's not a filled dent but scratches Sandy add to the dent. Well, of course all the dents were filled, but that's not what you think.

    You might be right. What I said before was just my theory... Nothing much.
