Hey pilots,

I was wondering if I could get some help on my visors. I made my visor mold years ago off of a casting I took of a Rubies visor and then worked it to be more symmetrical and straight.It has served me well and I don't think looks bad but it is a pain to trim. So I sculpted a new one off of one of my molds.

Which one do you guys like better?
Old:


OR

New:


Thanks,
Jeff

Its an improvement.

Your "bezel" on the bottom of the lenses on the outsides should be bigger and flare out more, but your nose bridge is much better.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about. Look especially at the left picture in the cheekbone area on Mark Hammil.

I think the nose notch is a bit too low now compared to the reference pics. Maybe split the difference?
