    Hi, does anyone have a clearer picture of the ID that's painted on the mohawk of Black 3 pilot?

    Thanks. Yes I've seen that, but its not really clear. What I did was take the Sideshow 1/6 figure and traced the insignia on that onto my cutter. Here's the result.

    I was hoping if there was one of the insignia in its pristine condition. But I guess this will do.

    Sideshow play fast and loose with details like that, so if you want accuracy then watch out!

    Wasn't that the helmet on display at SDCC?

    Thanks jkno. Yes I have those photos too. But the insignia here has been worn out over the years. I am intending to replicate what it would have looked like pristine, and it seems the only reference is the screenshot, and the sideshow 1/6 figure for now. Unless someone else has a gem to share. :)

    The last 2 photos are screenshots I took of a youtube video about this screen used helmet.
