    I've seen a few electronic belt makers on e-Bay who are "SithArmor" & "Portumac" there belts are okay looking I guess.I'm after a ANH, but I guess ESB would do.

    So what I would like to know before I make the plunge in buying a belt, any one know of any makers who offer good quality belts?

    ....if you're after an ANH belt, your best bet would be to build it piece by piece...Russrep (member here) sells nice boxes, knobs with red washers and buckles. Get square green pilot lights or similar from ebay and a 2" leather belt blank & buckle from a Tandy Leather or similar shop......lights are a straight relay circuit from a 9V source (battery)...God knows what the mesh is, but look around for something that looks like it and paint it silver...and your done.

    Failing that, I haven't seen anyone recently offer accurate ANH belts....the belts that are frequently listed on ebay look like GT knock-off belts.....which were loosely based ROTJ. I had one from Portumac long ago....wasn't too impressed with it and sold it shortly thereafter.

    I am working on an ANH belt and have done a few ESB belts. Just finished an ROTJ belt. I can do the lighting too.

    Bummer.... I just bought the buckle and knobs from Russ but didn't realize he offered the boxes as well otherwise I would have ordered those at the same time. Oh well...
