    Feb 9, 2003, 2:57 PM - Who's making your ammo. belt?? #1

    I've got an MP productions one that was made about a year ago for me.He did a great job,but the pouches seem a little tall.I was wondering if anyone on the scene has a "difinitive" belt out there,or measurements thereof?

    I have made a few belts.

    My pouches are 4" tall finished.

    The best reference I came up with was the pouches were 4" x 1-5/8". MP makes the best production Boba belt I've seen. That is one upgrade I hope to eventually make.

    Mine are Jango style & I scaled them off of some good reference material.

    Guess I know who I'm buying MY Jango stuff from in the near future. I was just wondering where I should get an ammo belt and holsters from.

    I just re-measured my MP belt.The pouches are 4 1/2" tall,and 2" wide.The width seems right,but again the height is a little off.It's not enough to warrant unloading it,.....unless a "difinitive" measurement surfaces I do love it for its closeure in the rear matching the original,and the craftsmanship is superb.

    I agree, a 1/2" difference would not be reason enough to sell it. It is a fine looking belt & well worth the $ from the pics I have seen.

    Great thread! I'd like to know as well (for Boba).

    I've got a fairly decent looking one that I put together for mine, but I think it could be better.

    I'm still waiting for Brak's to get me the accurate Boba measurements. I think I'll soon have to take matters into my own hands.

    Vince's stuff is outstanding... but I am in need of a Boba belt as well. I don't do leather. Any direction would be great.

    I think I'm first on sith_camaros list (after himself of course ) whenever Braks gives him proper measurements. C'mon BB! Snap to it!

    I finally sat down and started doing "digital" measurements, from all of the reference photos. Hopefully, I'll be able to make a prototype soon.
    When I make the "ultra anal, white vinyl painted brown and then glued shut" version, I'll just put Brak's at the bottom of the list! j/k

    Here's how I passed the time today while I was stuck inside
    from the big New England blizzard going on:



    It's my first attempt at sewing leather. Not as easy as I thought!
    I know the measurements aren't exact, but I figure when I finish
    this set of pouches & belt I can use it while I start my new "movie
    accurate" version. By then I will be more adept at my leather
    sewing abilities...I hope!

    Hey Malc, get some Barge rubber cement, it'll never come undone with leather. What is that, hotglue??

    Yeah, isn't vinyl just a yucky thought???

    Sigh... I guess I have tried to skirt this issue long enough...

    Actually some new info has surfaced recently that may help us better estimate the pouch sizes. And just so everyone knows, I do NOT have some secret measurements although I may have a few resources available that will help us out.

    Sorry to take forever sith_camero... Just so many things to do and so little time. BTW, I don't think I have ever seen any of Sith Camero's work but I did help MP refine his belt. unfortunately, as with so many, he became tired of reworking things long before I became tired of giving him new things to change...

    I was looking at my MP belt last night and to me the pouches look too tall and wide the flaps seem ok(maybe a tad wide) but the pouch bulges out too much thus ruining the proper width.

    Ah, there's the man now! If you've got a little more info, then I'll hold off a little longer on my size estimates.

    Lee,I too feel as though the MP belt is a little too big.I think he started out with the back pattern being 4",and didn't compensate for when the top flap,and bottom would bring the height to 4 1/2".The width seems about 1/2" too wide also.I'll probably upgrade AGAIN when somebody "nails" the belt For now it looks good on me since I'm 6'1" the larger belt doesn't really look that big on me.

    I was messing with this a year ago and haven't really pursued it much further. Assuming his belt is 2.5" wide/tall, a 4" high pouch is too tall.

    Check this comparison I did using a shot from the MoM next to a rough 4" high cardboard pouch on a 2.5" belt I was goofing with last year:

    Remember...I said "rough"


    Notice the excess on both top and bottom? Either his belt is closer to 3" wide/tall or the pouches need to be made 3.25"-3.5" high. Which, by the way, is totally bizarre because I was almost positive his ammo pouches were at least 4" tall
