After some internal debate over accuracy vs. functionality, I decided to try and make a functional leather ammo belt. First, I chose leather over vinyl because, just like my aluminum armor, leather just "feels" better to me. Secondly, I like the idea of having working components on my suit (ie. chest lights, range finder led & servo, voice amp, etc.). Ammo pouches that actually open will just be another functioning part of the suit. And while I am all for screen accuracy, and I am trying to get close, I know I will never get every detail just right, so I wanted to get some of my own personality into my suit.
With all of that said, I started with the search engine and gathered all of the various sizes for the ammo pouches. I still could not find a deffintive answer, so used TK409's template as my primary reference. Thanks Chris.
For a base I bought a 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" x 3' long aluminum square tube, and cut it to the approximate size of the wood block on TK409's site. I took an extra 1/8" off of the height to account for the piece of sintra that I would glue on the bottom of the block. Once the glue dried, I sanded the sintra to the size of the tube, and prepared the aluminum for the leather.
