Now that I have just finished my paintball helmet, I found myself wanting doing more paintball helmet. The reaction of my freinds was tremendous and I want to really push myself on my next build. You can see my paintball helmet here.

I really dig the look of this suit.I want to make the helmet first But making the visor might be a problem because of the strange shape. Can anybody help me find something that has a similar shape or someone that can make one. The visor must be 3mm tick to meet the paintball regulation. I also want the visor to come up and down so some kind of pivot holes must be done in the visor to insert screws. Anyway, if you gyus can find me a place or something that could resemble, I will figure out the rest:)

Anybody have a idea where I can found a item with the shape I am looking for for the visor to make a dummie for vacuuforming?
 
well you could take a blue mirrored motor cycle visor and turn it by 90 degrees, so its "sideways" and then cut it into shape. those things are quite cheap too, like 15 dollars on amazon iirc
 
What I did is sculpt the shape I needed for my own visor, take the correct colour perspex, lay it on a tray in the oven, heat it until it becomes floppy and then lay it carefully in the mould and shape it - worked great.
