    sweet looking leather work. I will for sure contact your guy when I am ready to pull the trigger on this important part of the costume.

    Art, on the knife, that is brilliant thinking.

    Just a question about the Boker knife:
    Is it for sure that the screen used one has a tanto point and not an "spear" point?
    thanks!

    Thank you Nexus!
    We know the Anderson is 100% tanto. When closed the spear point and tanto are hard to tell apart, but by the type of angle that the "swage" starts, it seems to be a tanto too.
    Another question I have is if the handle is original black or was repainted dark green.

    The handle on the Bokers were painted to match the green color of the gas grenade, flash bang stun grenades, entry charge, and med-kit.

    Fantastic work, again. Hmmmm. The open pouch (is that the mine holder?) looks verrrry like our old 'cuff pouches, from back when we had decent leather jobs. I think I might have one or two of those, in an old kitbag somewhere.

    And, inspired by this possible adapting of existing kit (which I would never have considered before), I'm looking at some old PSU kit, which I bought for personal use many years ago. The knee pads might be adaptable and the right size for the shoulders on the 2012 juniform, and similarly the elbow pads should be able to be used for elbow. The remaining shin, thigh and forearm guards wll take some looking at, to see what I can do with those.

    Meantime, my second helmet build has just started. My first was the classic Dillon helmet, started with a papier mache/cardboard shell, over which I used resin to reinforce, inside and out. An old motorcycle helmet provided the visor. Unfortunately, I must have made just slightly it too big, as when I went to fix on the helmet badge (bought as a cold cast piece on eBay), it was too small. Looks odd and needs fixing, but I'm determined to get this one (the 2012 helm) bang on.

    The help and inspiration available here, after nearly two years of struggling in ignorance with RP kit, is breathtaking! Thanks to all of you who contribute. It's fantastic to see all these amazing pieces, which inspire me to work harder and make my own kit.

    Yes, check out the original Dredd movie (2012) costume parts thread here:

    http://www.therpf.com/f71/dredd-movi...36/index7.html

    The reference images in the second post of page 7 provided by paulcarson. It clearly shows an actor on a Lawmaster with the Boker knife painted to match the rest of the equipment.

    In the first picture crop the Boker handle looks more dark gray than green. In the second, also the belt is green. I think that most of the time the handle seems green because of the effect of lighting/picture coloring.
    I was really asking if the green painted handle was observed from an actual screen used knife.

    I asked the etsy seller what the wait time was (because it listed as 10 available or something like that) and he confirmed that it was something like a 10 week wait.

    The OP is not the one that made the pieces. You can order them from the maker's FB page (see the Dredd Dragon Con group on FB). There is currently at least a 10-week wait for a set due to Dragon Con coming up... and I think they cost around 140-ish per set.

    He officers the disc harness, medic pouch, smoke grenade harness, and flash ball cylinder.
    A quick question about the medic pouch. The belt loops on the back, is that brass rivets or snaps holding them down?

    Thanks,

    I don't know how he is doing them now. I know he has been doing them differently for some who requested it.
