Are you talking about the box art, or the plastic parts? They are (or appear to be) Brodie Mk ll helmets. The rivet on top (on the kit parts) appear to be slightly over-stated, but not by much. Maybe where the bowl parts meets the brim is a little too sharp and should be more curved, but it's difficult to be sure without actually checking the parts in hand. They seem to be well proportioned.

Wondeful! These look great and are begging for a Firefly or Churchill next to them!

You are correct about where I also think th helmets are "off" and it seems to be worse in the pics on the sprue. J

I would agree regarding the helmets. It seems many companies, both plastic and resin struggle to get a good representation of this helmet.

Hornet heads will sort things out.

Any decent reasonably priced plastic British figures has got to be a bonus.

Ultracast Brit heads for me, Hornet still under scale for me!

Maybe, but Hornet have better sculpting and animation.
