    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE2

    Looking good..... I ran out of primer while starting mine tonight!!!! :/ I can't do anything now until Thursday when I can get more, besides, that gives me a chance to get to the hobby shop to check out more paint for the helmet as well.

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet (A step by step progress)

    I got my bucket started tonight, I have it primed and the key slots painted yellow.
    I got the paints for the dome/cheeks and the right ear/ back of the helmet.

    It appears to me that the ear and the lighter back helmet color are the pretty much the same.


    Mikael... Do you have any pics of the back of your bucket?

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE2

    I think you're right. Actually i think it's the same color as the cheeks and dome too. I painted my that way. Will snap a couple of pics of the rear.

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE2

    The helmet looks awesome man. I did notice something though. On the back of the real Pre Pro, the base color looks to me to be the darker navy color, with the dome/cheek blue as weathering. Are you planning on darkening this? Or are you weathering the back with dark blue and leaving the base coat the dome/cheek color?

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE2

    Thanks, Blastech!
    I'm weathering the back with a darker color(next step for me). The Gouache dries very fast(quicker than 5 minutes) so practically it was better for me to do the first blue first.

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE2

    Alright. I just looked to me like it was supposed to be a dark blue base, with light blue weathering. Keep up the good work!

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet -step by step progress- ADDED PICS!

    Here is my helmet so far...

    The yellow is painted on the key solts, the right ear is painted silver misted with grey primer, both are masked now or I would have gotten a pic of them.

    Here is my interpretaion of the color main dome and cheeks.




    The main color is a Model Master is Helbraun{SP?} I'll have to look later, it is a light blue grey mixed with some aqua and a touch of blue. It has been misted with just a touch of black and grey as well.
    I wanted the green blue look to it.
    The color will change a little once weatherd up more and flat sprayed over it.

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE2

    Awesome to see that you've started!
    Is'nt the blue a bit too bright or is it the flash playing some tricks? Looking forward seeing more of your progress

    The yellow on my keyslots started to bubble and i will have to do it allover again..ARGH! Anyway i've misted the RF side lower earpiece a bit with some black so it looks a little darker than the rest of the helmet. That's how it looks to me anyhow.

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE2

    The flash makes it bluer then it is in person, I hate the flash at times, I did darken it with some more grey this morning however. Once I hit it with the chalk dust, it'll darken up even more.

    I hate paint yellow on top of other colors as I have problems with lifting and bubbleing at times also, I usually paint those first possible, unless it is a repaint...

    I'll post more pics later.

    I know what you mean about the flash thing Looks cool, Lynn! Are you gonna use the same red as your ROTJ or are you gonna custom mix it?

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE2

    The flash is does majorly funky stuff to the colors, just look at the ESB helmet...

    I ended up respraying it tonight the base color without it being mixed with the colors I did. I liked the stock color much better.
    It is Model Master Hellbrua #4788, it is a grey blue green color, I put too much aqua and blue in it the first time around and I didn't like it much after I started looking at it.

    My red will be a different set of colors then the ROTJ, I want it more red then the darker red I used on the ROTJ.

    Great work on those pre-pro buckets guys! The color thing is super confusing though. Micke's bucket seems to match up perfectly with certain photos, while Lynn's matches up perfectly with other photos. anyway, they are both looking ultra-cool! Keep up the great work guys & keep postin them pics!

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE2

    Here is the bucket all painted up in the main colors, I tried to take pics in the most natural light I could.

    I may have gotten the gash a little long, it is hard to guesstimate this stuff when the details arn't painted on yet..

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE2

    Great work Lynn!
    Your earpiece color looks exactly like the color i used.
    Kinda like faded chrome.
    I'm yet to add the killmarks and weathering in the back..

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE2

    Thanks Mikael!

    I got my back of the helmet mostly done, I drew out he basic shapes of the weathering with a pencial and then painted in the weathering by hand using the same color as the left ear.

    I then dirtied it up quit a bit with some grey chalk dust. I ran out of silver paint, :/ , so I couldn't finish the silver scratchs and nicks. I tried using aluminum, but it didn't look the right.

    I filled in the scratch a little bit and made it shorter and I did start to weather that up a bit.

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE2

    I've started to weather the back too and do the grey scratches. The grey will not stick too good so i will have to buy some other color for it. I'll post a pic later

    -Mikael

    Re: Micke's Pre-Pro helmet UPDATE3

    Here's a new pic! The darker color in the back will be darkened when clearcoated adn the grey scratches will have to be redone:
