    Is it me, or does the third from the right (it's pert near a dead straight-on shot) have a visible snap on the outside?

    I've always thought the snaps were just glued on the outside of the flap. And although that pic is of the SE belt, it does have the best pic to show an outside snap, MMM. Honestly, I am unsure if it is inside or out. Logic to me dictates that they would be glued on the outside of the snap, but I'm curious to see what everyone else thinks.

    Looks like it is. But only on the one pouch too. Hmmm...

    There are three ESB pouches with snaps. I think only two are directly visible. I'll have to check and see if any are "the visible" snap. Could we be looking at one "outer" snap and two inner snaps?



    That is of the right ESB middle snap.

    I just took a glance at the picture in the VD, and it looks like the pouch, all the way on his left side, looks like it has a male snap on the outside.
    Aside from the snaps, any comments on the side slopes of the pouch? Those were tough to try to figure out correctly. Tell me now, before I start making them!

    Looks pretty good to me, maybe try wet-forming them on a block of wood that has an exagerated (or cut-in) slant to it. This would essentially force open the bend when closed on the pouch and make a tighter seal. If nothing else works, perhaps using a head-knife, or a skiver/grooving tool, along the inside of the bend would make it crisper.

    But, like I said, it looks pretty good to me and will eventually "settle" into place most likely. You're donig another outstanding job, SC. Run with this.

    While the ESB guys are trying to figure that out, go ahead and take care of us 'snapless' RotJ'ers.

    I hate to throw specs without my ref pics on hand, but I'm at work at the moment (I really need to copy my CD to this computer).

    Anyway, from what I recall, the pouches are white vinyl painted brown. The strap/flap portion of the pouch is a double layer of vinyl (one piece with 2 side folds I think). The snap could then be attached to the inner fold/back side of the flap and then stiched shut.

    Does this make sense with no pics? Maybe I'll comb secol's site for examples if I get the time.

    SC. The front looks good but I would really like to see you revisit the sides before you set the pouch design in stone. I will be glad to provide any help I can.

    The 1.85 comes from Brak's, and he's got a pretty convincing reason for that measurement. It may be just the screen or something, but we're only talking a difference of .15.

    Tried to take some more pictures, to do an overlay. It was hard the get the exact angles, but you'll get the idea.

    Gotta love that screen accuracy.

    If I had the time/money/obsessive compulsive disorder, I'd be right there with you accuracy fettishists (pun intended).

    As it is, it still makes a great spectator sport and gives enthusiasm to those of us who just want to make a costume that won't be laughed at. Gives us all something to aspire to

    Like someone else mentioned in a seperate thread, the bar has been raised.

    On an accuracy point (and I stand to be corrected if I'm wrong) the stitches appear to be "leaning" in the original. There's probably a technical sewing term for it, but in the faux stitches you've put on, SC, they're straight up and down.

    Difficult to explain, but it's like this:

    Original stitching--------Sith Camaro's faux stitching
    -- \ --------------------------------- |
    -- \ --------------------------------- |
    -- \ --------------------------------- |
    -- \ --------------------------------- |
    -- \ --------------------------------- |

    Pic 60 in the ref CD shows it pretty well

    http://www.essat.cl/cdref/0001_0100/Boba_Fett_060.jpg

    Not criticizing (as I am in no position to criticize the great talent around these parts! ), it's just that I've just hand stitched a load of my own ammo pouches and couldn't put my finger on why they didn't look quite right and then it struck me; leaning stitches! Had to find out AFTER I'd stitched 7 of my 9 pouch lids!

    Does anyone else see it, or do I need glasses?

    TK-Fett: Of course there will be a belt with it!

    Han Hunter: I see what you mean about the stitching. It looks like one or two of them have straight stitches, but that could also be the angle of the pouch. I'll have to see if I can get my machine to do this.
