    Hi Guys,

    I've just finish making the resin prototype for my Panther Belt Buckle project. :lol

    Here are the pics:

    I have used pics of the screen used Panther Buckle as reference to make the machanism, though the parts is not 100% screen accurate but the way the machanism works is more or less the same. :p :lol

    Inserting the clasp of the belt into the buckle.

    The hooks of the Buckle will locks up the clasp.

    To release the clasp from the buckle, press both the switch on the top and the bottom of the buckle and the hook will goes up and the belt will release. ;)

    Looking good? :lol

    This Panther Belt Buckle will be made in diecast metal and will have a nice and shinny black coating. I will pass this prototype to the metal factory once I have the final refinning work done. ;)

    I will have the test shot finished metal product probably in June. I will post pics by then. ;)


    Thanks for looking..



    Henry :D

    Nice work, engineering that latch must have taken some time.

    Hi Guys,

    I have just received the test Panther Buckle from the metal factory.. :p

    This test shot Buckle is not chromed yet but will give you an idea how the final product will looks like after it is Black Chromed. :D

    Here are the pics:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The four screws on the back will be hidden well on the final product so that they won't scratch your Bat Armour when you wear on the belt. ;) Also there will be holes drilled at the back of the clip arms on the final product for attaching the Buckle to the Panther belt straps, I will show you how to do it when I post the final finished pics of the Panther Buckle. :p

    Looking Good so far??? :lol


    Still needs to do a little final tuning on the locking mechanism and a little refining work on the clips arms and it will be ready for productions.. LOL.. :lol

    I should be able to post finished pics of my Panther Buckle in about 10 days..


    Cheers..


    Henry :D
