    Not to whiz in anyone's cornflakes.... but that's not the right one though...

    If you look in the wiki, that's the later model that the buckle edge is much longer. It can be worked a bit to be visually close with a grinding bit.

    hey its close enough! lol i wasnt even gonna go out ofmy way to get one, but i wasntgonna pass this up! lol plus i have a dremel and tools, i can make it work!

    haha sorry slave1pilot..for once i got lucky lol


    EDIT: I just looked at the wiki, it looks the same to me bro..but honestly if it is different,i doubt anyone is going to be chasing me around with a MM ruler LOL

    I don't know bro, I can see this happening. Some kid will walk up to you at an event and say "well he kinda looks like Boba Fett, but the jet pack buckle doesn't look right"

    it throws off the WHOLE SUIT!!!

    j/k! Yeah, it is good. you can only really tell from a profile that the buckle end is a tad too long. I dont have the pic handy. Good score! Hey, I would have taken an MQ-2 if I had to!

    Oh yeah...
    BTW- the belt I'm wearing in that pic isn't correct
    It's not even US Divers.
