Helmet revisited:

Revisited the helmet for some touch ups, mainly added more of the fine silver dotting were I could make them out on the reference photos. The big area that was missing was the collection of dotting behind the right ear on the dome. It stands out really well do to how it has a pretty flat top to the detail. Rest of the dotting was on the face and cheek areas.

Left gauntlet/flamer
Attached the mountings to the gauntlet, while not entirely accurate, it's still beautiful. Mainly wanted to see how my metal flamer body design held up while independently mounted to the gauntlet itself. In the photos, all the attachments are held on by tension.

What yellow paint did you use for this gauntlet?

What yellow paint did you use for this gauntlet?
So I used Rustoleum Tuscan Sun- that's currently what's on the 3D printed one you see in the pic. I found the can at Lowes- it's a gloss enamel, so after I let it cure, I cut the gloss off with steel wool rubs

The ABS replacement that's coming will likely have a different tone.

Gloves

Thanks to Major , the Pre Pro 2 Gloves are finally assembled. Next step is tinting the white padding to match the references.

Lastly, I should be receiving my hard parts back soon to start placement on the vest & getting things placed properly on my body.

Phenomenal paint work by jbdubz

Almost every speckle, smear, shade is practically there. What I love the most is how my hand formed "C" dent looks with silver on the shoulder bell

Soo awesome !! I love how random all the paintwork was on the pre pro. So interesting. Your build is going to be so dope. You also have the stature for pre pro. It’s going to look fantastic.

Everything looks great so far! If I were you, I would also do the true Pre-Pro #2 abdominal plate as backup:

Note that the abdominal plate was added by me.

Here's the armor (now with the Pre-Pro #1 left chest plate) from the Blu-ray extra:

Hell ya, the paint work pattern is so messy, like it was done by a kid- really random. I admittedly practiced a lot of the poses when I got the flight suit back- planning to have the crl be presented with poses mimicking the Kenner photos.

Ya I'll probably do one later on. I hesitate to call it true- our main references have been the Kenner building photos which are the staple to what we know as the Pre Pro 2

Gloves:

This past week, I worked on the gloves as I got them back recently from Villianworks (Major via BHG), whose mother got the quilting sewen on for me.

The main goal was to tint the quilting fabric to match the refs. To do this, I boiled some water and added a tea bag, hoping that would counter any pink hue the Coco Brown RIT dye likes to do, as I knew excess dye was going to be released from the gloves. After a test it looked good and I went for it. I'm happy with the results

I'll need to go back and add a snapp button closure and darken the circle patches

State of the build:
Did a partial suit up yesterday to see how things fit. I'm so happy with the aesthetic & getting to look like how the PP2 model wears the gear. We're getting close, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen a few of these. Here some unreleased ones also.

Next time I do this suit up, the Armor will be attached, plus the jetpack. To note, these are not the finale gauntlets- but I do partially love the narrowness of the right one.

I really love how well it looks! Can't wait to see you equipped with the armor and jetpack too. I hope that the 4th shin tool is just a placeholder and not the final version.

Ya the Shin tools and gauntlets are place holders. I'm going to start revising the Shin tools next

Very cool. Is it known why the left gauntlet was redesigned for the later costumes?

That's a great question and one unfortunately we may never know. If I had to guess, it was more top heavy with a metal rocket being mounted. That's how mine felt somewhat

One possible reason was that the Supertrooper/Pre-Pro #1 flamethrower was a bit hazardous (Duwayne Dunham's arm was caught on fire when he ignited the flamethrower during the Supertrooper presentation) and they decided to redo the flamethrower, but also to modify the left gauntlet. The modification is in the The Boba Fett progress report (the N.B. at the 1st suit), but no reason is given:

That's terrifying lol, partly the reason why I will probably never attempt to make mine functional- I'd disintegrate myself. I wonder if the extra step level in the Pre Pro 2 gauntlet housed something inside.

I went through the page 1 check list and updated a handful of things.

Dude you are crushing it! I have been neglecting my PrePro2 thread while I got my Din djarin costume done. I'm pretty much done with it though, just have the first suit up butterflies if you know what I mean. Whenever I get done with a major costume I kind of just look at it for a while before putting it all on and finding out how much work I still have to do to it to make it strong, movable, wearable and looking right.

That being said, well done, you have been a huge inspiration to me, keep up the stellar work!
