Mini Boba Fett Intergalactic makeover - part 2

Okay I actually did it, I cut out the visor!!!!
Now the problem I have is that the plastic is so thick the visor (black transparent plastic deodorant lid) sits waaaaaaay back and looks a bit silly....so...I've had to take my bravery to new levels and start cutting out chunks inside the helmet itself..not much room to maneuver and a sharp scalpel can easily slice a big chunk off if care isn't taken..


here's the visor cut from the lid....


and here it is glued in place....

now...after the glue has set it's noticable that the visor has become tarnished or clouded by the glue..so..it looks like it's back to the drawing board and to find another type of glue...


still the idea is sound and it still looks kinda cool...



Another glue and (yet) another visor has resulted in the following developments...much cleaner!






aaaaaaaaaahhhh...nice
