    I was thinking the same thing. I'd love to get that hat at an angle like he wears it.

    What about dremeling out one side of the hat a bit? Think that would work?

    was afraid to dremel the hat as it is fairly thin.. maybe lightly sand it... but the hair could be dremeled only because it will be covered by the hat anyway...

    My hat kind of "snaps" into place and holds position firmly. Sideshow planned that out nicely. I've tried to force the hat over and everything to no effect, so definitely either the hair or the inside of the hat needs to be adjusted to accomodate.

I am going to get those, bleach them out and re-dye them to match up... will take a while to get the parts in and get it going... the pith helmet will take a lot of work though.. best one I found was off of a Twisting Toys brand Italian figure...
    I picked up the Coleman pants (although mine don't have pockets on the rear), but I got the DID Edward Steiner shirt. It doesn't have the epaulettes, but it has the right collar. I thought it would be easier to create epaullettes than to change the collar. I got a BBI German tropical pith helmet. I need to remove the strap and the insignia, but it has the proper shape (flat on top).

    BTW Michael, can you tell me how you plan on bleaching and redyeing the clothes. I have a slight color discrepancy on my uniform and would appreciate any tips.

    I was just going to put the pieces in to a diluted bleach bath... once they were faded out I was going to experiment with some rit dyes to get that british khaki color and color both pieces with the same dye batch to match them up... you sure you got the coleman pants though ? they should have the one field dressing pocket on the rear ...
    BTW.. just took the dremel to Belloq's noggin and carved off a ton of hair... it is working.. able to reposition the hat a bit now... at this point I can cant the hat over just a bit... looking at more screenshot though I may try and heat the hat and turn the edges of the brim down more.. in the cafe scene the sides were not flipped up as much..

    Boil the hat in water then mold it while running it under cold water. . it will keep its shape.

    I painted my Belloq's hair last night. I think I may have gone a little overboard. His hair color fluctuates throughout the film. It's more gray in the canyon (with the MP40) than in other scenes. What do you think? Do I need to get the paints out and start over? Thanks.

    PS: Anyone re-painting the eyebrows? Thanks.
