How about the belt buckle Steve always wore?

As a space patch collector and fan of the Six Million Dollar Man, I have always searched for any info on a patch used in the show. I finally found one for his Apollo 19 mission when Steve Austin give a flight jacket to a kid who was building rockets. It has his Apollo 19 patch on it. Details are hard to make out, but so far, I have got the general shape worked out, and I am not to sure about the two other names.

I asked over on the Facebook "Fans of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman" group if someone could check the German Blu-ray release of the season-four SMDM episode "Danny's Inferno," which is the one that shows the jacket and the patch, to get a better screenshot. Here's the shot a fine fellow named Seamus Carey provided. The three names are AUSTIN, FALLON, and ROSE.

Im a huge fan of the Six Million Dollar Man and also have been fascinated by the arm used in the production of the series. Here's a work in progress CG model that I'm creating using the screen captures as reference. In my opinion, I think the arm used was a ordinary myoelectric prosthesis decorated with circuit boards, wires, and metal gear: I've wracked my brain trying to figure out the reason for the sprocket in the forearm but came up with a solution using "creative license" by adding a stepper motor but perhaps there really is one there that's hidden lol.

It's my hope to make this into a 1/1 scale prop replica.

Hey! I just found this thread. Did you ever make the arm? I would love to see it. I want to build one myself. Would you be willing to sell the design files?

I posted a reply but didn't see it post. I am interested in producing an arm as well. Any interest in selling your design files?
