Thanks to Christy "Miss Moff" (Woopdeedo) I am just a few items away from a submittable Gunner.

Nice! After having owned a FAC helmet, I recommend that you add some reinforcement to it. Cal uses pretty thin plastic to get sharper pulls but it also leaves the helmet feeling a little flimsy. I add carbon fiber strips to my helmets to add stiffness. These are available in any hobby store that sells RC airplanes. I usually add about three or four strips on the inside of the jawbone and one long one around the front edge of the dome. You may need to add tint to the visor lens, too. I find the chin strap gets in the way but that's a personal preference.

I appreciate the advise. Once it arrives (this Friday), I will visit the Hobby Lobby to pick up the carbon fiber strips and shop around for tiny if needed.
