I wanted to share the latest paint up that I just finished. This was my second layered/airbrushed paint job, and I have been working on this over the course of the last two weeks. I felt like I wanted to attempt a paint scheme that seems fairly neglected...The PRE PRO 3(PP3).
Precursor to the ESB Hero that we all know and love, you can see the direct lineage from one to the other. Often mistaken, yet different in so many ways, I found that I love this paint scheme version. Its gritty, well worn, and battle damaged. Just as complex as the ESB but seemingly less refined.
So after doing some research and checking out all of the amazing PP3 photos in TDH gallery from the Master Replicas photo shoot (Art's photos?), I decided to take the longer road and try to channel my best Jayvee and Superjedi to apply, scratch, knick, gouge, and stain my way to a complete PP3.
Armed again with a Cold Cast lid from Asok, killer stencils from Raf, and enough Humbrol, Model Masters and Floquil to spray myself to death, I was able to produce this paint up. All the while constantly eyeing reference photos to the point of driving myself crazy. let me know what you guys think and please, once again, if anyone has any suggestions I would love them.
Here it is...
