Discussion on Scratchbuilt Ammo Belt within the Boba Fett Costume forum, part of the Star Wars Original Trilogy Bounty Hunters category; hey guys, got done with my ammo belt...i know you
Well except for the obvious fact that it's not leather (or a look-alike material) it looks great. Seems like you nailed the size and dimensions real good.
I know you aren't going for 501st approval, and it's what you had to work with, so all-in-all its a very nice scratch-build. It will definitely suit your needs and I know you are happy with it.
Not bad at all.
thanks, pete!! and well, the pouches are leather...the wraparounds and the actual belt are not....and ya, the buckle is not accurate either....but it is a smaller belt, and until i get to the track and start running again, the less stuff around my waist the better!! i know its not accurate, but i am really trying not to go all out on the soft parts, so i can really spend the money on the armor and the lid.... we will get there....
Well its certainly different but hey i like it. Well done buddy
We need different every once in a while. I like it!
I have to agree with Pete 100% Darrell, so long as your happy with it bro, that's all that matters. I kinda like the nylon webbing myself. nice job.
I'm digging it too. Nice scratchbuild.
Very nice job brother! Great work!!!
Indeed, very cool, that is a very nice idea, I think I can use it for a Mandalorian Suit I want to make for my son. Thanks for sharing. It will make it look different.
Hello all, I have being working on making my ammo belt by spending as little money as possible (Forced to do it like that), but to try and match the real thing as much as I possibly can. After looking around here and there I found some very cool Ideas for this ammo pouches and took some templates to create one that would allow me to make this things and be able to put stuff inside too. You can actually fit a Moto Razr inside them. I used Vynil for mine, it kind of resembles leather and it is very soft, just like fabric. In order to make it look harder I used cardboard for the inside. Currently working on the templates for those as well. The cool thing is that you do not have to glue them completely to make them fit. But when I post the pics you will be able to see what I mean.
I wanted to share this template with you guys and read your oppinions later on if possible.
I also made the belt, mine has 56 inches and attaches to my back with Velcro (Good bless this invention). I will try to post some pics of the end product here later on so that you can review them as well. My idea is to scratch build my ROTJ Fett. It uses the same principle, cardboard covered by Vynil, very light weight.

Ok, here is the end product.
I also wanted to thank all of you for posting so many usefull ideas here, they are all great.
So, here are my 5 cents.
