    I'm working on a ROTJ set up and want to make the pouches of the ammo belt out of Syntra, covered with with fake synthetic leather (allright, if it is synthetic, it surely will be fake leather LOL ) But with what kind of glue do you attach them together?

    This is probably the go to thread for what you are doing.

    In this thread he is using 3M adhesive. I have used several types of adhesives over the years but E6000 or some of the more flexible adhesives would probably be your best choices. I don't like the dry time of a lot of these but they work in the long run. Tandy also makes some leather adhesives that work well.

    I used "Pattex 100% Colle" which should be readily available in Belgium (I'm assuming your profile up to date :-) ).
    It's flexible which is essential for the belt and pouch flaps, and adhered well to the materials that I was using (MDF, synthetic leather, rare earth magnets). It's non-toxic. It can be readjusted, so requires clamping and dries enough to hold in about an hour. I can't say if it works well with Sintra.
