They both handled original screen used Scout helmets. If the snout is not connected to the part underneath I'll look when my own helmet arrives. Do not forget the photos above were not taken at the same angle.
    I know it's the right part, my point was that it's not attached seamlessly at the top of that engine block part the way the original prop is.

    I just explained why it looks off, the way it's attached to the plate, and the plate itself has its horizontal line cut lower than the actual. I am aware of photography angles though, I did keep that mind.

    Only thing I see is the bezel around the lens is not big enough by a small amount, but the lenses are asymmetrical in the right way, the bezel matches that asymmetry correctly, the vents all line up the same way in the back that they should, so I'm not seeing a 2nd issue.

    The visor on the eFX is set too low (see side pics) and the interior of the visor shows the fiberglass texture. These are the biggest issues with the eFX for now. hopefully will be corrected...

    I already noticed the fiberglass texture but since that's in the records as something they've admitted, I didn't think you'd be counting that as something someone needed to spot. I do see what you mean about the visor being set too low, but I don't think it's that simple, the bottom of the lens is in the right place, it's the top which is a small amount too low; but the real problem there is that the brow ridge above the top of the lens appears to be entirely wrong, not enough bezel and not rounded enough, that bezel doesn't reach high enough and doesn't slope up to meet the brow which isn't downsloped. By contrast, the LW has a slope to its brow design, but the wrong bezel slope.
