Zero Head (Borderlands 2)
Hey, so I'm planning to do Zero in about a year, and I wanna get my research done now. Anyway, about his head



How on earth do I do the visor? I mean, I know nothing! What material, how do I apprehend some, ECT. Any help guys?

The first thing that springs to my mind is vacuum formed plastic. Since I'm guessing you don't have access to a vacuum forming machine, there are places that can do it:

A dark smoky sheet might work, so it can still be seen through. As for what to make the master from, I've only ever used wood. Although I've seen modelling foam being used, I'm not sure how well it stands up to the pressure of the vacuum forming process. Sculpt the correct curvature with a flat base, then once you get it back cut it to shape.

Funnily enough I do, but thanks for the help, and I did need the advice on the type of plastic. Do you have any idea where I can find some?

I personally use http://www.modelshop.co.uk/Shop/Raw-Materials/Plastics/, although I've never looked for grey/black tinted there.

Very nice, having access to a vac former... If you have a CNC milling machine too then you've got a nice quick fabrication process.
