    help needed on ear details

    I was wondering if someone could tell me how to do the details seen on the ear pieces. Im talking about the white U shaped thing and the black with white inside U shape. Thanks.

    Are you talking about the right ear decal of the ESB helmet??
    Maybe you can find the set for both ear pieces in the Cargo Hold, I saw them a while back.

    Or maybe you can get the template that is posted in the Ref CD and print them yourself.

    I used masking tape and an X-acto knife. I cut the shape of the U in the tape and stuck it on the ear piece.

    Then I gave it a few light coats of spray-paint and let it dry in between coats.

    This is how they look:

    I could have done a better job of it, especially the white bit in the black U on the gold piece. Lucky for me this was juct practice and when I paint my next helmet I'll get it right.

    Hope that helps.
