    Aug 1, 2012, 10:54 PM - WIP PP1 EYES VERSION FOR ThirdEthree #1

    Alright guys- After some poking, prauding and straight up dirty bounty hunting from deadland and thirdEthree : ) I have agreed to partake in a PP1 “Eyes” version paint up for in fact…ThirdEthree. Last week began the preliminarywork of sizing Raffs wonderful stencils using Microsoft pub. Upon receiving the lid today (a Beautiful FP CC by ASOK) I was able to begin the initial stages of prepping. Tomorrow I plan to trimming out and mounting the visor section. The tedious art of stenciling and masking out the damage will then insue. As always, suggestions are welcome guys : ).

    Altough you didn't mentioned, I think you already have in mind to fill in the dent and adding that long, deep scratch on the left-top of the dome. Just saying...

    Can't wait to see the next updates!

    This will be great, I love this helmet and want my next helmet to be this. Superjedi has painted one that I saw in person that was fantastic, he might have a paint up thread.

    It looks smooth and shine! I guess you will add all the physical damages to the helmet, the same 3 from the PP3/ESB helmets.

    You do what now? You paint then add damage and repaint the damaged area?

    Hey Fett- Yep, exactly. But, only if needed. For example with the large gash above the left "eye", once I complete the dome ill add the gash between the preceding colors. In this case I dont feel (IMHO) theres a need to address with paint once the crevas is etched in as an actual bullet graze would simply reveal the elements beneath the damage. I have just found it easier to move in this order? Thanks buddy

    Just a tip for that long gouge, if you'll indulge me:

    I marked the location on the dome with a pencil, then did the gouge
    using a metal file with a triangular profile. That way, I could taper
    the gouge so it's deeper in the middle and kind of rises to the surface
    at both ends. That's the way it looks to me in the ref pics anyway.

    *Shrug* Just a suggestion.
