The small boxes are hammond aluminum die cast project enclosures. The make/model is on my updated chewie guide. They are still available. The large boxes are pressed aluminum and are no longer manufactured, but have breen runs of these fine in the post. Go back a few pages on this forum and you will find them.

Mel matson offers a bandolier and pouch, although the pouch is a bit too small, I think, and is not weathered.

However, pretty much anyone who does leather work can make this. Im remaking mine myself..tandy leather has a ton of video tutorials on their site that explain everything.

wait until everything else is done before you do this, then make a paper dummy so everything is the right size and proportion. Do this even if you hire mel to make it.

Good info! However I've NEVER worked with leather. I'll definitely check out these videos online.

Matt, if you are going to rebuild a bandolier yourself, if you can, post progress pictures or videos please!! I think a lot of folks would find it helpful.

I think I can easily handle making the boxes from scratch, molding them and recasting the total number needed. You've got real good pics up on the wookiee resource page for them.
