I just checked it out, and I think that could work for me.  Going to try it in cardboard first.

Would anyone want to be part of my story?  Part of the current chapter involves meeting with a more experienced Bounty Hunter, and was about to give the honors to Remo, but not sure if I'd be doing him justice with a cameo.

Now, are we talking goofball or Hawkbat-osik?
The story is set in the post-Clone Wars period. Have just had a run-in with a Death Watch shabuir who interfered with my hunt, and tried to kill me and my partner.  Just contacted my Guild handler to meet with a hunter who's been at it longer.

After careful consideration (and a short conversation with PJ, a.k.a Hondo), I am planning on opening up the visor a bit on the Night Owl I have, Legacy-style.

The lines are where I was thinking of chopping, but am looking for other input.

In other news, the back plate is on hold for now, since I am now the only one employed in my household.  Still looking to do a segmented back, though. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my vode. K'oyacii.

I opened my bucket up and vision was drastically improved, I don't know if I could have survived otherwise. I say go for it but make absolutely sure you like where your lines are and be super accurate with your measurements

Personally, I'm not a fan. I'm not much of a fan of the legacy visors though.. maybe a less gradual cut?

Gotta agree with Ronin here.  The best-looking part of the Night Owl is the visor, and it'd be a shame to chop it up.  Maybe elect to replace it with a new helmet, one with a wider visor.

I'd like to get another buy'ce, but with money getting tight, that is gonna be a while.  Might see about a less severe cut.

I see what you mean, the thinnest part would be right were your eyes are.
I have two styles you might like.
Style one is a less severe cut, but should give you that much more vissiblility.

Style two has a more severe cut, but would really open up your field of view.

The first doesn't change the helmet to much, but the second one really changes the expression your helmet makes. And trust me, they make an expression.
In the end this is just food for thought, more cut out, or less. You can probably guesse were my vote lies though :P.

Liking the first one more, keeps with the flavor of the Night Owl.
