Solo belt hardware question

I'm making a Han Solo costume for my nephew and i was wondering if anyone had a picture of how the belt is put together, specifically, how the holster and belt attaches to the buckles. Also, where can I get the hardware to make it? The leather work I've got, just not the metal parts.

Thanks
Wes

This may help a little.
Most of the holsters that I've seen use these buckles Tandy Leather Factory - Rectangle Buckle Blank 1-1/2" to 1-3/4"

for the front and back. You'll just have to cut the corners so that they have that octogon shape.
The tough part is aquiring the T-shaped metal piece with the slot in it. Then you'll have to glue a pin to the back of the buckle so that the T-piece can rotate freely. All the hardware is glued on the back of the buckle using JB Weld. I'll see if I can find you a pic of the assembled reverse side of the buckle.
