    Feb 25, 2003, 9:26 AM - New Boba ammo pouch, finished and ready! #1

    Decided to start a new topic. My plan is to initially make a non-functioning pair in both leather, and vinyl. The insides will be solid. Then, using MMM's idea, I will attempt functioning ones by using pieces of metal as support inside.
    To me, it's not that important if they function. Fett has a ton of other pockets here and there, and these are pretty narrow for someone with gloved fingers to get inside.
    This is just the vertical flap, using BB's 4.5x1.85 figures. The stitching is simulated, since this is only a test run. Although, if I made leather ones, I could do the same thing.....but then the stitch count would probably be off!

    That looks great, SC. Even the simulated stitching would be fine if the pouch was non-functional.
    I don't get any credit for that metal insert idea, as I said, it was used by infantrymen to keep the shape of their leather cartridge boxes that held rolled paper cartridges 250 years ago. Glad I could help.

    Is that leather or vinyl material in the test pic? The measurements definitely seem to have worked out pretty well.

    Listen to SC! You'll never get a proper looking ammo belt with functional pouches. The flaps will never lay properly! But I suppose having the "functional pouch" option is neat, so that you can store tic-tac's or Pez candies...not that you could get them out or anything

    The test piece is leather. As for getting the flap to lie right on the functional ones, I was thinking about gluing a belt piece of metal across the inside of the flap, so it matches up well with the body of the pouch. But that's just a thought. I have yet to try it. Got to make the non-functional ones first.

    I really love being told what I can't do . It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Looks like the proverbial gauntlet has been cast down. I need functional pouches to accomodate my set of micro tools that I have been amassing to maintain my metal armor. They can also hold car keys, batteries, cash, cond....er.....gum. I'll work on a set, and share my trials with sithcamaro.

    Why would you even put yourself through the hassle of functioning pouches man?? Just way easier not to, not to mention much more accurate. Like Tyler said... Unless you really need breath mints or something. I could understand if they were big enough for a pack of cigarettes in each but it just seems like more work for no reason...

    Yeah, I know. But I'd like to be able to offer them, to people who really want them to function. (and pay more)

    SC - If your using metal to reinforce the flap, why not put a magnet on the inside fo the pouch. A strong enough magnet would hold the flap down thru the leather or vinyl. Being on the inside cuts down on some of the room, but would keep it invisible. I don't know how easy it would be to open with gloves and all, but it's worth a shot. Just send me one when your done!

    It was only a recommendation...or plight or plea
    The only reason I mentioned it is because other pouches have suffered in terms of accuracy trying to recreate the pouch with a functional lid. For those people who are more interested in accuracy over functionality, it is a case of not only remaining accurate to the original, but that the original construction has a good deal to do with a final, accurate look.

    But I think it is a great idea to have useable pouches for those who would also like to incorporate some functionality into their suits. It would come in handy especially if you have a set of metal armor. Or a booty call

    Can't wait to see a final version in vinyl. Have you given thought to incorporting the pouch snaps for the ESB/SE crowd?
    I have go back and find the best pic of the snap. Though I suppose it would be easy enough for us to just glue the snap to the pouch lid.

    Yeah, get me some good pictures of the snaps. Don't want to upset any of the ESB guys by not adding snaps.

    Re-named the thread. I wanted it to fit more with the latest part posts...
    Here's a few pictures from today. I gave it some sides. This is only a prototype. Still trying to nail down that slope at the top. The pouches are a little thicker than the will actually be. Becuase of the flaps I made inside, to glue the pieces together, and the thickness of the leather, it made them thicker.
    I also tried to make the pseudo stitching look real, using the last of my brown dye.

    I don't believe the snap is under the surface. I think may be a glued on "snap." Though I could be mistaken.

    But glued under the flap, right? If that's the case, then any ones that I may make out of leather won't really show through, because of the leather's thickness.
