    Hi !
    I'm a great fan of Logan's Run and prefer the tv show's props, specialy the Follower/tracker and holster for DS Gun. So when I see that I can't found it on replica, I was decided to made them myself.

    For begining the holster, here is the original props :

    I was found the good sheet of aluminum (with the right thickness) :

    I was made a original model on paper for have a very good "V" for the hook of the DSGun and start the cut of aluminum sheet :

    And after cut the good width (very hard for to made the "V" because the sheet of aluminum is thick !)

    Trying the holster with my Working DSGun (This is the heaviest gun, if it works with it, others replicas will too !) Hourra ! It's goods !

    I think that my replica is not bad :

    After, come the painting (I use the same paint that I use for Nickdad DSGun kit : a paint for paintball guns) :

    The holster finished :

    For begining I was cuted the Follower in two parts and painted the top :

    I was used a paper sheet and printed the text on for the picture. In the futur I will use transparent paper and priting the text which will be illuminated by a LED lamp. I must to put again the second switch on right side, and a second LED for to made a lamp in top ! I have already buyed the LEDs :

    Looks good although you could have bought one of Rylos holsters. ;)

    Rylo's holsters are just the triangle and clip without that top portion. I have one and assume that was how they were in the film. I have a working Rylo flame gun and agree it's a heavy prop and when I wear it with my belt, it does sag a bit. How or did you compensate for that as yours looks pretty flush.

    My bad the tv version was different.

    Ry's holster was based on a movie screen-used one

    Thanks Apollo,
    I have already a Rylo's Holster, but I prefer the tv show version. I don't like very much the big "V" of movie version. :)

    I think it's because it's not the same metal used that Rylo (perhaps Rylo used steel for his holster ?) and my aluminum sheet is thinner. And my holster is in one part : the clip is spaced less than that of Rylo, so it is best held on the belt with less movement.
    I think is that...

    Nice items, Logan's run is one of my favourite films, I'll definitely be catching up on the v series soon.

    P.s. have you ever noticed that the apple store security uniforms are very similar to the sandman ones ;-)

    Can you post dimensions for your holster/clip ? What did you base the size on...is the clip the same size as the movie version? Also, did you just assume that the TV follower is a cut down movie one, or did you base it on any inside info? Does rylo know the size of the TV version follower?

    Hi !
    sorry for the delay. I can't post the dimensions for my holster/clip, in fact, I was drawing around of the clip of one of my DS Gun, and made the measures since that (if you have a ds gun, it's not complicate to made the holster). None, it's not the same size of a movie version, I think that a holster movie version is more big. I don't remember where I read that the follower/Tracker of the tv show it's a movie model cuted, perhaps on the rpf forum ! ^^ I can't answer you if Rylo know the size of Tv series follower, sorry !!!
    A little video of my Follower/Tracker finish and functionnal (I was using Led) :
