    Thanks Rafal!
    This is a second try with all sewings and better color (in my opinion).
    i'm working on the belt...

    Some pics of my progress. I have to change color but it's easier to work with a clearest one.esb-belt-view-2-jpgesb-belt-view-1-jpg

    A little update. Sewings are done (except rectangular ones inside). Starting grommets. Next step is attaching pouches.

    The perfect (digital) ESB belt! Now (or whenever possible) on to the physical one...

    Not to add to the workload of the amazing stuff going on here, but I wonder if it would be worth it to include a 3D-printable file for the block/shell to wrap the ammo pouch material in for those of us who might want to take a crack at making their own belt...

    Hi Necronaut. Thanks for your interest !
    I hope i understand what you said (my english is sometimes approximate). I will post patterns for the layer around the block with documents in section 2 ( making a pouch).For those who are interested, i will post my sketchup file.
    Some pics of the finished belt.
    I will change documents in post #1 with pics of the 3D belt.

    Just some corrections:

    The ROTJ SE has 14 ammo pouches while the ammo belt has a cream-colored and not black velcro:
    Correction made. Thanks Rafal! Sorry for the long delay.

    Great stuff guys. What type of leather should be used do you think?

    I'm sure this is know as well but Isn't the SE belt made with white leather (white vinyl?) then painted brown?

    Hi,
    you're right on the white vinyl.
    It's a choice you have to do. If the purpose is to troop with, i think it's better to use a brown vinyl ( no risk ruining the paint work) but if you want to make a belt more accurate, you must use white vinyl.

    Looking forward to seeing more on this -- especially the Supertrooper version. I'm scheming my own take on an ESB version build. That is, I'm using this and your other thread as heavy inspiration, but seeing if an idea I had works as an alternative to how you constructed them. I'll post up what I come up with so you can judge its merits.

    Just to clarify, the templates and measurements for the blocks are the measurements just for the inner blocks, not including the material thickness of the layers of wrapped leather? Is that correct?

    So the final belt pouch will be 4-5mm thicker in all directions due to material thickness?

    The measurements of the main body contains the leather thickness too, so if you want to make a block from whatever material, you should decrease the values accordingly with the leather thickness.

    Hi all,

    I apologize for my long absence. Some family obligations helded me far away from the board.
    Now that things became again more quiet, i expect to post more regularly.
    you all missed me.
