Hi! Starting on my own belt soon, and I was wondering if you can share where you got your templates for the belt and pouches?

Hey kman,

Welcome to the asylum!! Hope your journey to a new Solo costume is a good one.

I created all my own patterns based off screen caps and references to other rigs, primarily the one offered by MP Filmcraft. I was unsure, however, of exact measurements when I made my patterns. Consequently, mine are slightly larger than what is screen-accurate.

It works out well for me, since I'm a little bigger guy, but I would recommend ladysolo14's build for a more accurate pattern; at least for the buckles, pouches and such. She's done an outstanding job!!

Thanks! Yes, I've been following ladysolo's thread as well. Is it recommended to print her pattern to scale (should be possible, since it's photographed on a ruled background) and clone it? Or are you saying everyone should try to create their own patterns?

I have the buckle set from RFTJon, so at least that part won't be a concern for me. Smile

I would think printing her pattern to scale would be fine. I'm pretty sure she posted it so that others could use her work as a starting point, so I don't think she'd mind you using her patterns. If in doubt you could always shoot her a quick PM to ask if it's OK, but I don't think there'd be a problem...

Good choice for the hardware... Cool

For all the belt-makers here,I have some Pattex-glue and it´s suppose to handle (glue) everything like leather,plastic,wood and you name it. Instructions say that it can stand up to 100kg (220lbs) of pull or stress.After it sets it´s like plastic.I´m thinking of using Pattex for Han´s buckles for the pieces that hold the leather as in metal on metal.Little like these pieces:

Sounds like it would work. I used JB Weld for mine, and have never had any issues with it coming loose, but the Pattex sounds promising as well.
