    Nov 14, 2005, 11:47 PM - My Ammo Pouch Belt ! #1

    I am almost finished with my APB, based on BNs tutorial. I just have to find the right grommets and I will experiment with weathering it up a little.

    I know, the stiching is a little uneven, but I am fine with that, since it adds, to a worn look IMO.

    What ya think

    Great job! It seems a bit light in color but otherwise... very cool.

    Nice job. Since you mention the stiching ... it looks a little to close to the edge of the ammo pouch flap. But sill very nice work.

    Looks good to me! What did you use for your pouch core?

    Thanks !

    I used balsa blocks for the pouches, and surrounded by a layer of vinyl-fake-leather.

    The process

    Well, there wasnt really a "process" Rethinking, its the same method I use when drybrushing modelkits.

    You need : Black shoecreme, brush, another tissue.

    Open the creme, take the brush, tip it slightly into the creme. Wipe of most of the creme on another tissue until it is nearly gone. Now wipe over the vinyl. Let it dry. FInished in under 10 minutes.

    Simple enough! Does it wipe off after it dries? Or is it pretty stable?

    It is stable enough, until you rub it really hard, and I mean hard.
