    I just stared a repaint and I really don't like his head. But I also don't see a good way to remove it, without the dremel.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    The screw is hidden behind his light piping if I recall correctly. If you use a fine-tipped screwdriver or something similar to pry the light-piping block out of his head, it should be pretty easy. It wasn't glued in place on mine.

    Of course, I discovered this AFTER I tried to pry mine open (assumed it was glued). So yeah... light-piping first. :)

    Yep. Pry the light piping from the top of the head, and then remove the screw behind it.

    To remove the whole head, you may have to dismantle half his cockpit.

    That's how I did it.
