    Jan 23, 2008, 1:05 AM - PP2 WIP #1

    Here's my first attempt at the PP2 helmet paintjob. Its a rather hurried job on a ebay MH I had left over from before TDH. More to come.

    Nice job! Haven't seen one of these done for a while. Was considering doing a PP2 for a while there but ended up going ROTJ. Looking forward to seeing more progress

    Cheers

    Great job there! Hey, I notice there's a "Biltmore garage" sign in that last pic. That wouldn't be the Biltmore just out of Asheville would it?

    No. LOL I wondered if someone would ask me about that. It's actually a sign from Guys and Dolls, a high school musical I starred in. It lives here in my messy room at home (Im 21 and I live with my parents Ok? When I get to be 40 then I'll worry)

    That is a standee from Frito Lay that I won in a contest from K-Mart back when AOTC came out. I feel really bad that you havent seen it SEEKER because the whole time you were making your armor I was thinking, "I bet this is what he's using because it's a really helpful front on shot for referencing almost all the parts except the forearms." I can take a better picture if you like.

    Yes it is. I altered the color a bit with some blue/grey color to try to get closer to the ROTJ/PP2 green. I am going to overspray the whole helmet with a grey later on to match what I precieve the PP2 had done to it.

    Updates!

    I painted some more damage and added the kill stripes. I really dont have very good reference of the killstripe side of the helmet so there was alot of guess work there.

    The ears are **** and I want to replace them soon. Also note that the borden was sanded off and will be replaced by a Marrow Sun part when I get to it.

    The first picture I added a visor to in paint make it look better.








    You can see some of the weathering I am doing in this picture. The dremel marks are a bit off but not enough to bother me.



    Here's one with flash to see the colors in different light.


    And last is the killstripe color

    Nice looking PP2 bucket! I'm on a long and winding road to making one myself.

    What did you mask it with?

    Its been awhile but I made a bit more progress on this thing. I got a few more shots of the PP2 from Braks CD and I realized how off some things were. So I kind of lost interest in doing a super accurate job this time around. Still, to the best of my ability.






    The back was a pain. Very hard to get a clear shot of the damage there.




    I'll be attaching the visor and other ear soon. Criticism welcome!

    Is the PP2 the one with the "eyes" or is that the PP1?
