    Re: ESB to ROTJ ammo-belt conversion...

    well the pouches are finished now, with some sewing and glueing... I'm surprised by how well they actually turned out..

    the colour is actually like ou see it the pic with all 8 pouches, but the camera flash brightens it up real bad in some of the others pics.

    Re: ESB to ROTJ ammo-belt conversion...

    well I'm almost done, as the material is a little strechy I'm going to put a regular leather belt in the back of the thing so that will actually hold the pouches, and the vinyl belt is just for making it look right.

    also need to add the rings.

    the pics aren't to great but when the full costume is converted you can see everything.

    Your conversion came out great. 10x improvement over that Jango belt. Keep up the great work, I love following your progress.

    Go ROTJ!

    Re: ESB to ROTJ ammo-belt conversion...

    thnx man! that means alot to me!!!


    here are some better pics taken outside with the side pouches attached and all.
    I slid a leather belt through the back and nailed them to the 8 pouches, it's now quit sturdy and possibly more durable, staying in it's form liek this.

    you do see the belt closure a bit under the back side, but I don't really care, I really think this one came out quit well thnx to TK-409!!!

    Re: ESB to ROTJ ammo-belt conversion...

    yeah it's a bit to clean, but I'm not 100% sure how to do that yet, want to think it over a little... maybe sanding bits off and paint sprays or soemthing...

    thnx for the compliment!!!

    Re: ESB to ROTJ ammo-belt conversion...

    That turned out great

    I would TEST out the weathering on a some scrape pieces first.....
    Again, Nice.

    Re: ESB to ROTJ ammo-belt conversion...

    yeah thats a good idea, I got plenty of stuff left so that should be easily done.

    stay tuned for progress

    wanna study the belt a bit more to get an accurate weathering scheme.
