    You've done it now Spideyfett! (logs into PP account)
    Ha Ha! Sucker...

    I posted this in the forsale thread:
    definately need to make a paint list... I started my own research way back when in regards to paint matching.. I never finished it though...
    I think the best representation of a finished PP2 was Micke's : http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/p...project-13552/

    ALL the pics are dead... but I saved most of them.

    Paint one of those helmets and get one of these guns and you'll be all set. Here's my pre-pro gun with it's first layer of blue.

    Hi Everyone,

    Came across a slightly better teaser pic I took and thought I'd share. Obviously, I've not been able to work out my photography kinks over the years. I'm sure Art will show this off for what it really is if anyone is still in doubt. But until then, here is a better representation.




    Thanks everyone for their kind remarks and support of this fantastic project so far !

    Chris

    You're not to shabby of a helmet painter yourself, superjedi.

    Today, I received my GMH helmet from Fettpride. This is a VERY hastily taken pic, but just wanted proof that I have it IN HAND and from what I am told, more are in the mail! I really think Chris knocked this one out of the park and you guys are going to be very pleased. I also think it is going to be the closest we are likely to get to an original, without an original or stunt becoming available.

    Sorry again for the quality of the photo. I really need to give this helmet a light grey coat of primer to make the details pop better.
