Glowing lenses for a Space Marine Helmet without Glosplex?
« on: March 25, 2016, 07:13:57 AM »
Looks like Glospex glasses are more or less impossible to find now so I need find some other way to accomplish that glowing eye affect while still being able to see outside the helmet. I was wondering if anyone could point me towards a tutorial that may work or make some other recommendation? I've read some rough descriptions where you use mirrored plexiglass, LED's, and some colored plexiglass but I'm wondering whether anyone has had luck with that working.

Really unfortunate you can't buy Glosplex any longer. If anyone has a pair of red ones they don't want drop me a message, I'd be more than willing to buy them off you.

Have you tried looking over on the rpf for the ironman glowing eyes? They are really easy to do, cost effective and you can get everything you need at most local shops.  I did mine for under $25 usd.

FortMiller, would you be willing to do a tutorial on your eyes?

I am simply not finding it on the RPF do you have a link to the build?
