    Howdy,

    I'm trying to make all the costume assessories to go with a screen-used Buck Rogers Starfighter Tunic that I own.

    I need help in Identifing the belt buckle used in the series. It's a chrome recangular-shaped belt buckle. I believe this was also used extensively on Battlestar Galactica costumes as well. Maybe some sort of military belt buckle?

    I'm able to find similar shaped buckles on-line, but nothing like the loop and hook fastener used on the back of this style of buckle (pictured below)


    Thanks in advance... Nicholas

    I think the belt buckles may have been custom made for the shows. They don't look too hard to reproduce.

    It looks like a kilt belt. Check UK or Canadian surplus places. Search for Pipers belt.

    That's what I was thinking.

    I think it might be a Marine dress pistol belt with the insignia removed.That type was not used on BG.

    Some of the Marine web belts uses similar hook and latch on the belt ends, but I still can't find the exact belt buckle.


    Thanks for the input so far..... Nick

    Older police color guard belt...not sure where to get them anymore, but my old department had a bunch of them. The buckles are exactly the same. Try doing a web search for color guard belts.
