So I had this helmet chillin here with no dent was going to be for a custom Mando Protector, and Ive been wanting to do some paint work as Ive been bored. Figure hey everyones doing pp2 may as well do PP1 always loved the first eyes helmet way cooler than the second ears version. So I stripped the helmet fixed a crack that had occured before I got it, and went to work...got ahold of Asok for one of his metal RF stalks and an RF, had a Mojo Borden connector figured what the hey lets throw that on there the borden on there was really "dull" so I swapped that out too...also got a new shade 5 visor and put it in there as well....not completely set with the visor its kinda not fitting how Id like it but its no FP helmet dang resin
How it was B4 the stripping
The Evil Crack....
All fixed and the scratch and nicks added to the visor....
Mojos Borden its NICE
The RF and stalk I was working with :/
Aosks Stuff came in 3 days after I paid him!
Heres where I started the rear panels
Then onto the cheeks....
After the cheeks came the dome...had to do this TWICE :/ The paint got screwed up and didnt stick to the silver
came out good after the second try...
Then came time for the "EYES" and yeh took a good hour to get em on there with a brush by hand with the one pic there is its hard to tell I found Rafals stencils after and they may have helped a little but going by the left over paint marks on the PP1 V2 u can see where they were so it wasnt a HUGE PITA just a small one
After that I got to work on the mandibles and the ears were done in between everything as theyre very simple grey one one and metal on the other
And there you have it a PP1 V1 done in just 8 days (most of the pics except the last 4 were taken with my milspec phone) was sending em to my good buddy TX Fett he got the WIP so excuse the poor quality of the first 3/4 of the threads pictures...I think it turned out well...this is just the begining of a PP1 suit I think Im excited to start it the keyslots are kinda the only part of the pp1 you cannot see ANYWHERE! So I followed what Rafal went with in his thread and went with it...they make sense with the damage on the rest of the helmet so Im happy with it....I have the MQ1 about to go in just noticed it wasnt in there....thanks for looking and look forward to more helmet paint threads here soon I hope
