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?
