    I know who made this diagram , it was made based on a drawing by Darryl Pajot to point out the shell differences between makers. The decals are merely featured for visual effect so the cross hairs and decals really don't have any use other than appeal. It's the shape of the helmet that really tells the differences between makers (as pointed out by the little arrows on the diagram.

    Personally I look at the decal type , paint color , lot number stamp and vent hole to deduct what company made a helmet (in case it's not readable).

    Schwerpunkt, thanks for that, yes i realise that the decal has no real bearing, but im under the impression that because of the positioning of the vent hole, this dictates the siting of the decal, whether the vent is forward or back from the centre line would tell where the decal had to be positioned,but i see what your saying, but im only using this as a rough guide,cheers Dave

    I don't think the vent holes are correct either , there are easier ways to recognize the different makers.
