1. Shallow arch described by the curve of the breastplate.

2. Phone box is in wrong position -- on top of helmet vs. in between top and left ports.

3. Goosenecks pointing inwardly rather than primarily downward, as with an authentic Mark V.

4. Dumbbell does not fit within the channel designed for it on the neck ring.

5. The spitcock valve handle is not curved to a bulbous point and is slightly canted.
