    Nice work looks like a good solid build. Should have a happy niece!

    For a fast and nasty visor......get a 2-3 liter bottle of soda...3 would give you more coverage....drink and enjoy till empty.....cut off top and bottom and slice open...clean thoroughly.....nothing worse than ringing the sugar dinner bell for bugs inside your helmet while wearing it......carefully use a heat gun to shape the plastic to your helmet's interior....cut excess as necessary.....hot glue in place at the corners.......it's going to be a little wonky, but it will get the job done.

    And so....the visor didnt arrive in time...doh!

    I got all the coke bottle and glue and silver mylar out to build one, then a mate jumped in and saved the day with a spare visor for his masterchief helmet.

    Not quite ODST but very good in a pinch.

    So here is the finished thing!

    And so closes the "ODST for my niece" build. Hope you liked it, and thanks for all the great advice along the way.

    Peace out
    Joffers Mk 2.

    Fantastic job Joffersmk2!!!! Its one thing for a parent to build a suit for one's own child....but for an uncle to do so.....that's one special guy. You have my vote for "Uncle of the Year". She must have been on cloud 9. Good to have a mate to help out in a pinch like that.
