    May 17, 2014, 9:29 AM - PP2 Commission Paint Job for TDH Member Syper #1

    Hi all!. I will be updating this thread as I work to complete a commission on a PP2 style GMH for TDH member Syper. This will be my first time painting a PP2. And once again..I could not have done it without the help and information contained on these boards. I have to once again thank RafalFett for the stencil work, the other awesome painters on this site, Fett4Real, Jayvee, Terminal Fettler, DVH and other talented builders/painters who Im sure I looked at their builds.

    Anyway enough of the Oscar Speech...onto the pics.. I just finished the back panels, just have the micro scratches and some various misting of greys and other colors for a bit more weathering left to do.

    Needless to say I'm excited! i wasn't even in the market for a painter when i saw this ROTJ helmet thread by REN

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/r...et-done-49461/

    Years back i was lucky to get my hands on a FP-GMH #88. I've been sitting on it for years but now I'm Happy to have Ren on this commission. This is going to be a fun build, we will be making many cool additions to this build (evil laugh) Mooohaaahaa

    Ren's not new here, but he has been working on his skills quietly for many years now. Hopefully Ren will be booked solid after this build

    Thanks again Ren

    (=Syper=) Jim

    Here is the latest update on Syper's GMH PP2 Paint. Upper and Lower Cheeks done, for now, need to mist some more black/dark greys on the Upper Cheeks. Still have the micro scratches and weather plus so other detail work left, but I will do that once the done is done. Now onto the dome...

    Yep mostly. Most of the colors seems close to ROTJ colors. The dome & lower cheeks seems a bit more grey toned than ROTJ to me. And of course, I'm still playing with the "Sandy Rose" mix. I've read the threads about the color theory. Think I got the base colors to mix it to the correct shade.

    Progress pic update on Syper's PP2 commission...the dreaded dome..the randomness of the damages is a beast to tackle..just the Tvisor and ear caps left. Then onto the weathering and micro scratches. Were closing in on it brother..

    What did you use as a stencil for the bars around the dome? Something you bought it something you made?

    the stencil for the kill stripes is mainly based off of RafalFett's templates. I had modify them just slightly to fit the GMH.

    And thanks all for the compliments. Painting my own helmets are one thing, painting a commission for someone else is a bit more nerve wracking...now onto the T-visor and ear caps.

    And here is the completed helmet. Overall Im pretty happy with the way it turned out. Had an issue with my modelers tape leaving some residue on the upper cheek, not sure why. This was a fun helmet to paint and my first PP2. It is unique in its own way. I am thankful to Syper for giving me the chance to paint this helmet. He is a man of detail and an amazing builder. I can not wait to see his complete PP2.
