    Is it my eyes, or is the left rune larger than the right rune...?

    Maybe because it is too good to be true?

    You actually might be right about that tiger, when you look close it could look like there is about 1mm difference

    It's trying to be a 'fat runes' decal. I'll give it a D for effort.

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    The decal looks like it has been applied over the corrosion underneath and then sanded down, the scratches all seem to be in the same direction.

    What's up with that camera angle? With SS helmets its too good to be true then it is too good to be true. This is too bad to be real.

    PS gentlemen a real Q decal has a slightly larger left than right rune....
