    A lot! The graphics, the lines, the face, the talons, the feathers. The whole damn bird, lol

    Edit: Here are two good decals that the fake is based off.

    try searching the site for originals and you will have learnt something for yourself and you are more likely to remember it than if you are told by others.

    It is a one looker duffer.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    You still didn't do too badly for 40 IMO as it looks like a fairly decent M35 shell with original paint and liner band. I would be tempted to try and remove the decal with boiling water as it looks like a waterslide type, but I suppose that's your preference

    Hi , it's a poor decal as the guys have said already , the bird just shows a complete lack of quality in the detail compared to originals. Leon.

    I was going to mention that, but the pics are so bad I just didn't bother. Shame on me I guess
