No don't recall seeing that earlier. I'm sure they shot a ton of footage on that aircraft carrier. Maybe it was supposed to be a shot after they helped cougar get back. Who knows.
On review of this post, it’s clear that some of us noticed and have the eagle facing left side patch, Maverick of course, has his accurate as hell..
Okay, so I guess that IS confirmed? Cool!
Any USN guys able to let us know if the reason is as I guessed above?
OK, here's a question...
are there any pictures / references to Viper's patch configuration?
Can see a Tomcat, Topgun with red edging, Fighting 33rd upper right and name patch in yellow, and he's got that US Navy patch as above (right). I *think* there's a Tactical Wings Atlantic, or other triangular patch, on the wrist of his left sleeve, but not sure you can see lower right body or lower right sleeve. There are only a few points you see him in a flight suit. Anyone got anything??
Also, any idea what Viper's medal rack is? struggling with the first badge on the 4th row - looks like it might be an Antarctica Service Medal.
Also struggling to get the medals to order "properly" (well properly for Viper anyway!) I'm guessing I'd get individual ribbons and a mounting rack rather than them come pre-mounted and stuck down, so I can order as I want / need? Otherwise I'm guessing it's not possible to customise on the site as it'll be non-regulation?
fifthchamber you were the guru on this before and you've been down the medal ribbon route too I think - any advice?
This looks absolutely fantastic. Nicely done. Since you asked for the feedback I am happy to give my 2 cents. I wont pretend to have spent much time going through the scenes so if you are going for pure screen accuracy that is a little harder for me to judge, I can only speak from a USN authenticity standpoint7 1/2 years after the idea was born I finally finished the helmet
I did a quick costume test (excuse the missing gloves and boots) and couldn't remember if the ejection seat harness or the survival vest/life preserver should be on top...
Can you spot inaccuracies?

Some of them have gold borders - I think Goose's is white bordered in the movieThe American flag patch should have a gold border. (Officers wear gold, enlisted wear silver)
I have not read this thread in its entirety so I'm not sure if its mentioned but the boots are made by Belville (Brown Steel Toed 330s) What size shoe are you?

I'm a size 10.5/11 and I will start looking for those boots now - thanks!
(Everything else I will take to heart when I wear it again)
