Looks pretty good.

My only criticism is that your comm pad pocket looks kind of high, it's up at your elbow. It should be about midway up your forearm.

Lori, you need to finish your pilot before you talk about the pilots of others

Looks like a good start. Have you altered the collar?

I would get a tube of spot putty and make the seam between helmet sides and mohawk strip a little more even. Sand. A second layer of primer. Maybe some on the rams horn also.

Russ, since you're going to do the Biggs paintjob, here's that picture of the back graphic.

If you do anymore masking, try using vinyl electrical tape, it's flexible, so it goes around curves easily, it leaves crisp edges (some masking tape can get paint bleeding under it) and pulls off easily.

Stephen from Richie's Armor gave me that tip and it worked very well, when I painted my own helmet using it.
