    I never thought finding the boxes and the buckle in accurate representations would be done, and the belt of all things be the problem...WHERE does anybody make a 2 1/4 inch belt? :) thanx for any advice from u vader makers...curt ;)

    ....go to a Tandy leather or similar shop or even a Tack shop....they sell all different widths of leather straps. I bought straps, buckles, rivet gun and rivets all for about $50....made my belt and chest box straps with it.....

    I cut out all of my own belt leather for my belts. Make sure the leather is the right thickness too.

    Sorry for the hijack, but while I am ordering from Tandyleather what would be the correct width for a Luke ANH belt? I already have the correct belt buckle from an earlier order at TL from a couple of years ago but it still is an unfinished project. Maybe I can finish it off together with a DV belt now...

    Would a Ben ANH belt be of yet a different size and buckle?

    Thanks guys.

    Checked out the tandy leather link. This may be a stupid question, but how do you make a strip of leather black and then connect it in the back of the Vader mannequin?

    You're welcome. Just make sure you don't get it on carpet.

    Is the leather the same thickness as belt leather or is it a softer more flexible leather for the chestbox straps?
