the one with the X's is for testing paints.

Also in these pictures the pilots had not had the Flashing removed.

The cap still has to be shaped.

The strange looking bumps on the side of his head will hopfully turn into ear phones :)  as paint and hard ware are added.
This was the first pilot I ever tryed to sculpt the next one will have ears and I will build ear phones that go over them. this time I did not feel like I was abeal to do that though.
