    PP2 (Helmet WIP)

    Well I may as well do a thread on it so I dont hijack other peoples threads with my stuff
    Ive started painting a helmet in the PP2 colour scheam , Im trying to get this one as close to the way the helmet is now days with the cut marks and all
    Started by taking the masking to the gel coat the painted silver and gray patchs were they were I thought needed I do not beleive the original helmets we painted in layers of onee colour at a time I think there were patchs here and colours there , most so with the PP2 helmet, any way this is it so far the next image is the real PP2 p5010297-jpghelmetboba-fett-second-prototype-helmet-modern-04-jpg p4290296-jpg
    so far Im happy with the look and I think the colours are good it doesnt look it but there is 5 colours there so far including the silver

    Disclaimere the first pic the colour is distorted due to being taken inside at night under lights with the flash the third pic is what the colour looks like

    That's really looking great! Did you sponge that silver on there? It looks thin and spongy just like the original!

    No it just layers of misting the to get the larger drops it pushed a thin slither of plastic in to the tip of my air brush and it spits a bit

    Thats about the same as mine , , they can be tedious but the results are worth it and you can use such a wide range of colours

    Re: Year of the PP2 (Helmet WIP)

    That looks real good. That appears to be the PERFECT green. What are the colors you're using then?
