It looks good in general. If I could make some suggestions.

I would try and remove some extra foam around the snout, roll up some paper-towels and dip them in latex to create wrinkles on the forehead that stick out. I'd let those wrinkles dry and stick, and then cover them with more liquid latex to make them blend. Then I'd use a folded paper towel cut into shape to form the thin skin membrane around the mandibles, and also cover that in latex. Personally I'd also remove the eyes since all others beside the Berserker used the actors eyes (plus contacts). Finally I'd add two more teeth to the bottom jaw.

Just my two cents, but hope it helps :)

(If you're talking about painting, then I'd say you may not have "layered" correctly. The black area on the side of the Predators head is usually really closely condensed black spots, so that the red-brown underbeath sort of "ripples" through)

All good advice but I just don’t have the time/skill to do it :)

Very good for someone who do not have the skills ... I think you have the skills to do it but maybe that you do not know where to begin or like a lot of people of us, do not have the money to do it ...

This is really great dude well done! I'd love to have a shot at doing something similar. May I ask, is there a particular type of upholstery foam you're using? I've found a place that sells a load of different foam sheets, but no idea which would be best. TIA! :)
