To really get the "neon-green" shine of the real LEGO M:Tron visors and cockpits, you'd need to find some neon-green transparancies and trace the parts outlines onto them instead of printing them.
Because you can't really pre-shape plastic like you can paper to get the tension out of the sheets, you'll need some good glue to keep all the curved parts of the transparant visor glued together, but I think the result will look very nice! ;o)

The thing is, they're white. ;o)
That's great for your ink cartridge, but sometimes it can be hard to see which parts are actually parts, and which parts or glueing tabs, or even scrap paper, especially on smooth parts where there are no fold lines.
For this reason I decided to make the glueing tabs light grey, so it's easier to see the difference. Unfortunately, you can't do that in Pepakura Designer yet (hint hint, Tama Soft... ;o) so I'm using Photoshop for now. ;o)
