    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.
    Welcome back! Real life (especially the family) is more important than some nerds on a nerd forum. It is great to hear that everything is well now!

    This is a first try of the entire belt before making the 3D version. Rafal, are you ok with it?

    Looking forward to seeing more on this -- especially the Supertrooper version. --Jonah
    Here's a reward for your patience. I've finished the 3D version so the final version will be post soon.

    Thank you fo rthe Supertrooper. To let you know roughly how much all this means to me... I'm currently making a heavily-ESB-inspired ammo belt and pouches for my Fenn Shysa build, I'm now starting on two Supertrooper sets for myself and a friend, and -- also for him -- I'm preparing to do a PP2 version for his PP2 Boba.

    All of them I'm making out of kidskin, with slight alterations to your templates, since I'm working with actual leather. Double thickness, it's the perfect 3mm/.125" thick. It would all still have been possible without your efforts here, but would have probably been a lot more frustrating, and taken me many more years to complete to my satisfaction. Thank you so very much for sharing all this with the community.

    --Jonah

    Great job!

    Just a side note for those who don't have all the info: the Pre-Pro #3 soft parts were used on the ESB Hero suit too (except the cape and the spats), so the ammo belt is the same on both suits. The Supertrooper ammo belt was converted (painted) to the Pre-Pro #1 suit, then added to the ROTJ Hero suit (it's the one from the MoM, Dag and SWtE exhibits).

    It is possible, but not all the details matches between the 2 belts:

    rotj-pp1-pp2-belts-jpg

    The Pre-Pro #2 seems to have white velcro sewn in at least 2 places, while the Pre-Pro #1/ROTJ doesn't have that feature.

    And comparing the Pre-Pro #1 and the Pre-Pro #2 ammo belts, to me it it looks like different materials (the color look different because of the hue of the image); the Pre-Pro #1 looks like leather, while the Pre-Pro #2 looks like vinyl:

    pp1-pp2-ammo-belt-jpg

    And here is a preliminary drawing I did a while ago regarding the visible end of the Pre-Pro #2 ammo belt:

    Hi,
    just some words to say that i had to stop working on the belt some weeks ago to concentrate my time on my helmet. Just to be sure that it will be almost done for :

    A signature inside my helmet and a meeting with Mr Jeremy Bulloch.
    now back to the belt !
