    my scratch built ammo belt

    Hi ppl

    Well there is my attempt at an amo belt. I must admit these are not as easy to make as i had hoped. To all those others who have scratch built belts, i really am in awe of you as all the others i have seen really kick ar$e.

    Well here is my feeble attempts (i am not too keen on the white stitching and the lids are all slightly different even though i used a template. The fact i hand stitched it all might have something to do with it though)

    I suppose the fact that the lids all sit slightly different could give the impression of different items stored in each pouch !!!!

    Looks great to me man! With a little weathering you will there dude. I think the fact that there hand made makes them more authentic and closer to the real deal! Great job!

    great job! Yeah, those are very hard to make, and it's time consuming. I hate making them. Might be those hardest costume peice to make in my opinion.

    Looks good man. I can attest to the time and patience it takes to make them. Are you going to put grommets in it?

    My bucket goes off to you for hand stitching. That takes a lot of work and patience.

    I probably will when i come across the correct parts to use. However at the moment i am just happy to have a usable belt.

    I guess its one of those things, we will all continually upgrade and improve our costumes

    I'm just impressed that you did all that stiching by hand !!!!

    If your not happy with the stich color, heres a tip use the "wash" method to color em whatever color you like. I did this on part of my SFP jumpsuit where I redid a few things and it came out perfect

    That looks very good! Especially if it is hand stitched! Belts really are a big task. I know, I've made about 100 of them!
