    Looking very, very good. Nice to see someone trying to get the belt nailed down.

    OK, I'm pretty much ready to make these, unless someone feels that the slope on the side is off, but there's really no way to find out exactly. Plus it appears that the originals are not all identical
    You have a few choices as of now.
    Non-functional:
    Leather or vinyl (brown leather, or painted vinyl)
    straight stitch or diagonal stitch

    And IF I can make functional ones, they will be made with leather. But right now, my main goal is non-functional.
    I still need to pick up some white vinyl, and good thread. Then I have to get something to make the solid cores with. Mr.Fett gets his made from lead.

    Would it be possible to get some pouches with straight stitches and some with diagonal stitches.

    I know painted vinyl is more accurate to the screen stuff, but why go through the hassle when you can just buy brown vinyl instead of painting white vinyl?

    You gonna make me offer another way?
    The only reason I'd use vinyl, is to make it the screen accurate version, and that happens to be painted. Plus, there's white around some of the corners, where the paint has chipped off.
    Otherwise, if I'm not going for the exact screen type, I'd rather do it in leather.

    Yeah, the leather is cooler and more realistic....unless it's too thick of a cowhide, then the corners get all funky when trying to bend them to the proper shape. I guess it depends on what ounce leather you get.

    Well, for the non functioning sets, since they'll be glued around a solid core, I'm just going to use a thin, flexible leather. If I make functioning ones, they may be think, like my original prototype.

    I know white vinyl painted brown is more like the real one but... that was for use on screen, from far away... it didn't need to be real.

    I'm REALLY excited about the real leather ones myself...

    I've determined that the depth must be the same as the width, 1.85, from one of the very few pictures that have a good measurable view.

    just out of curiosity...

    Those belt pouches always looked like police speed loader holders for revolving cylinder guns. Any chance that's what they actually were?

    Your pouches are coming along really good nice work.

    Nice work, SC.

    Slowmo; I have several speed loader belt rigs, and am sorry to report that they come way short, literally, of Boba's pouches. Too bad, with all these PDs going with the semis, there are tons of these old rigs available at real cheap prices.

    I tried doing some tricks with the stitching today. I tried a number of ways, I think the way on the bottom is the way I'm going.
    Anyone who might have sent me a PM about these pouches, please write me again for an inportant update

    Will you be using any specific paint that you can tell us about--should we have to do any field repairs of our own.

    Right now, I'l just thinking of using a simple brown acrylic paint, unless you guys think I should use some type of an enamel. The paint on that sample is Folk Art #940 Coffee Bean. Is it the exact color? I'm not really sure, it was the only brown that I had. But once I put together a semi-finished test piece in vinyl, you'll have a better idea.

    I think that brown looks pretty good. The belt/pouches seem to have that brown with a reddish tint to it. Acrylics would be my first choice since it's more flexible. Enamels would probably dry harder and tend to crack (just a guess).

    Started adding stitches to a vinyl test piece.
    2 different types of lighting.
