    I have a reference pic somewhere of the original screen used item, it is a custom made item by the looks,and quite a bit larger than the ones being used now, given the electronics now vs then. If I can find the pic quickly I'll post it

    Hm, dont see how that can be, the MQ-1 i had (and others ive seen)had a LCD display. The green with the black digits, and not a regular LED digital display. here are some pics of the MQ1. I think from what ive heard/read, the display was fabricated at ILM.

    Good point it does seem that it could not be the mq1 ;
    But reading the found parts list it does say 3 seperate parts are used from the MQ1,
    Theres the curcit board on the lid theres the gauntlet pad and there is ararently another part that has been used on the armour i was thinking it coulds be the chest display but odviously not

    according to the TDH wiki for the found parts, only two pieces of the MQ-1 were known to be used: the pad and the circuit board.
