After I received a cast of Blue Banshees B-Wing Helmet kits I begin to made a mold for the Visor. The B-Wing Visor looks like indentical to the A-Wing Blast shield. I made the A-Wing helmets and the problem was that the visor was a little bit larger than for the B-Wing cast so I made a new mold and yesterday I made the first pull.I like the framed version so I made the frame from the same mold to.The next step is tinted one half of the visor yellow and install the rest for the helmet like the cables.

That looks great! I ordered a helmet and such from Alex as well, so I will definitely be interested if/when you make more of the visors for sale! Cool

I, too, am interested in the visor since I'll be starting on my B-wing soon (I hope). Nice helmet!
