    Feb 12, 2008, 9:13 PM - ROTJ Girth Belt questions #1

    From what I gathered the accurate color for ROTJ girth belts is "russet red." This is apparently more of a brownish color than the color of the ESB girth belt. Accurate?

    Also, is there a difference between the types of girth belt attachment for ESB and ROTJ? I've seen both leather extenders and nylon straps with plastic buckles.

    Thanks everyone...

    Hi Arakus,

    What I used to get the "russet red" were Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch Colonial Red and Minwax Red Mahogany stain (#42250). I think I used a 10:1 mix ratio, 10 parts of Colonial Red latex paint to 1 part of Minwax Red Mahogany stain.





    And these are the pictures of the girth belt after I stained/painted it.




    I used the black nylon straps for the belt attachments.


    Hope this helps!
