Alright guys the votes are in:
The Fake Decal is....
I must say, this was a pretty tricky one. I took this decal picture from an old thread a few years ago. The look of it is very convincing, and it tricked a bunch of people at the time. The biggest red flag to me is that the chest feathers are poorly detailed. I'm sure those of you who spotted it can point out other problems as well. I noticed after I posted this that the same fake decal is featured on the GHW forum in the fake decals section. I would have used a separate decal had I known that beforehand.
In regards to Decal 3, the one the majority of people thought fake, it is an original decal from an NS double decal shell.
If this quiz has taught you anything, it should be some degree of realization of how good fake decals can actually be. I've noticed that many members of this forum, including myself (just today!), have cast judgement on decals before even seeing good quality close ups. When it comes to the internet, pictures are everything. We need to start asking people for better close ups on EVERY SINGLE DECALED HELMET until we are satisfied with the picture to the point where we can make an informed and honest judgement. Also I would like to point out, and this is the last thing I'll say, this forum desperately needs a "REAL DECAL THREAD", where members can go and study real decals conveniently. Studying the fakes in the "FAKE DECAL THREAD" over and over gets us nowhere. If you want to learn how to spot a fake decal, first you have to learn how to spot a real one! If you don't know what the originals look like, decals like # 2 will slip by you every time!
