Another, though I don't care for how the hand turned out. I couldn't find any official pictures to match the colours to, but along the way I came across ranks. The emblem on his arm ranks him as leading air mechanic. Here is the site:

If a task is once begun never leave it till it's done. Be the labor great or small, do it well or not at all.
