    Re: WIP Ammo pouches fully functionnal

    I make a comparative of the 3 pouches dimensions i could find. The purpose isn't to criticize any work because nothing i can do could be compared with the awesome work that those men do. Simply, before making all the pouches for my ESB costume i would be sure that i was starting on a good base.
    So i make a shape of batninja pouches, tk409 and Rafal ones(thanks again for his advices).
    I take this picture in the gallery and enlarge it to see one of the pouche of profile. This is the result (excuse me for the big size ok the files).

    For me, the most accurate (for an ESB costume) is the Rafal's one. Rafal.....you are a god!A you sure you haven't stolen the real costume....
    So before making a new template using your dimensions(i will call it the "RF version"), i would like to have your approval.

    Thanks, you are too kind!

    I did the ammo pouch template and measurement using reference images, the same way you did your comparison. But I did a new template which is a better replica of the original. I post here the US LTR and the Metric A4 files with all the measurements needed:

    ammo-pouch-template-a4-jpg ammo-pouch-template-ltr-jpg

    The template is for the leather part (without strap) and not for the wood block or any other inner part! If you print the files with the fit to page option (according to your paper size) it will result in a 1:1 template.

    I really like what you did here so far, so I'm OK if you use these measurements.

    ------------------------------------
    Update 29-02-2012
    ------------------------------------
    The template's measurement was modified due to the ammo pouch's side angle modification from 45 to 32.5 degree. Both files are updated.

    For some reason the image isn't working. If I 'right click' the image and press the 'open link in new tab/window', all I got is a red X.

    Re: WIP Ammo pouches fully functionnal

    Thanks Rafal!
    Your comments are a big motivation.
    Since last post i didn't have time to work on the project, but i was thinking about how to attach the flap on the pouch (the method with sewings wasn't satisfactory).
    I had a new idea using a locking tab. IMO this method is better.I'll post the tutorial asap.
    This is some picture of the result

    Re: WIP Ammo pouches fully functionnal

    I've finished the sewings template using ref pics to find the good spacing between holes.
    7-sewings-jpgboba-fett-costume-empire-strikes-back-02c-jpg
    Now for the button on the front , my calculation shows that the diameter must be 13 mm (about 0,51 in) i find this in my hardware store with the exact diameter :
    aix_vynex_____396____8471___-jpg92680-jpg
    I think that after painting it will be pretty close to the real ones and cheaper.
