-The actual sizes of the 25th heads in comparison to the comic pack heads should be reason alone to disqualify this.
-The "Officer" emblem is very clearly different between the two. It's larger on the Air Trooper.
-The "cheeks" on the Air Trooper mask aren't as puffy and round, the mask itself is more angular.
-The frontal "snout" detail is slightly different. The Air Trooper's is taller and slimmer.
-The gas mask "vents" aren't as detailed on the Air Trooper as they are the Gas Mask Trooper.
They might be based on the same design, but it's not a retool in any way, shape or form, Mac. Just like, say, the 25th Officer helmet is not a retool of the 25th Trooper helmet.

While I've no problem with the size of the air trooper's helmet, I really like this mod.
Yeah, it does remind me of Dark Helmet and so on, but large helmets also have a spooky or eerie feeling to them. Perhaps because they make me think of nazi designs or something.
2 other things that came to my mind right away: General Veers and Snowtroopers
I say "thumbs up" to this mod.

You know that hose idea is awesome. I broke my line and wasn't sure what to do with it. Thanks for the great idea. BTW I like the helmet but I think the air troopers should have had a Sky blue color instead of the dark blue.

I agree, that does look like the Ice Viper.......So why haven't ya customized one yet? I really dig the look, but I also really like the Gas mask/Air Trooper look too.......I don't know what to do
