Regarding helmet eagles I found the pathfinder ones and these http://www.warhats.com/ww2--pre-wwii-other-stencils.html. The pathfinder one seems a bit blobby but looks similar to the few original ones I have found in pictures. I am thinking that the war hat one may be a bit too good for a typical appearance?

the pathfinder one does look spot on when on a helmet to what I have seen - though the war-hats people did manage to paint theirs somewhat more 'blobby' than the stencil suggests.

They seem a lot larger than the one on my Angels helmet. Is this right and my stencil is too small? I'll try and take a pic if I can work things technological!

The story/unit I'm basing my kit off if anyone is interested:

I'm not sure if my insignia is the wrong colour or not. I have yellow for FJ/aircrew/schools but I guess a radar school came under the umbrella of signals so it probably should be brown. :blink:
