I'm in the process of making a Han Solo holster. I cut the leather, stitched the holster (with the cap) but I have a question: how do you fix/attach the leg strap to the holster, and the holster to the yoke? Do you glue them? or stitch them?

Thanks in advance,

Joe Solo (unfrozening) Laughing

You can stitch the yolk, rivet it... or even use chicago screws... for easy removal. I mention the later because this would allow you to construct multiple holsters to fit the blaster yet not have to make 3 belts.

My rig is stitched for the yolk, but a Chicago screw for the leg strap. The Chicago screw allows better movement when walking IMO, but that is just me.

Picture bellow is a Han belt on display for a better look as to how much of an overlap of yolk they used.

I attached both with rivets...unfortunately, for the leg strap, I think you'd have to attach it BEFORE sewing up the holster. It has to be able to lay flat in order to pound the rivets down.

You might be able to get a chicago screw in there. The main thing is whatever you attach it with, you don't want it to have too high a profile, or the flash hider will get caught on the thing when you put the blaster back in the holster.

Hope that helps. Good luck with your build. Cool

What you have here are my former and my soon-to-be-finished belt.

Yeah, I was approved with THAT belt... oh, the beginnings... Laughing





The former holster:


Maybe I'll recycle the yoke... Don't know yet...


Have a nice week!

just one more question, before I can continue working...
is the yoke "symmetrical", or has it got an "arm" longer/shorter/lower/higher than the other?

Hey Joe,

Sorry to take so long answering this, I meant to do it the other day...

In my opinion, the yoke is not symmetrical. The reason being that we are more "round" on our backsides, so the yoke is longer and sweeps up more gradually in the back.

I can try to make you a template for it if you want, just let me know.

Well, I haven't thought about "roundness", but about the height of the buckles, since in ANH the front buckle is lower than the rear one. I imagined that there should be a difference because of that.
And in ESB, the yoke's arms may be symmetrical because the buckles are at the same level...

Only if it doesn't represents any trouble for you. You are a great Rebel colleague, man. I really thank you.

Hi Joe,

No troubles at all. I enjoy watching your work. Here is the template I use for my holster yoke:



You can see it's not quite symmetrical, and the "Y" is longer in the back than the front. I usually cut the arms of the "Y" longer than this and then trim to the size I want them. The more you pull these through the holster clip, the higher on the leg the holster sits. Once you're happy with that, cut them to size and install snaps.

The yoke is the same template on all three versions of the belt. The straight vs. angled thing you're talking about is more a function of how the belt connects with the buckle than it is the holster yoke. The way the belt connects perpendicular to the angled sides of the belt buckle is what causes the "low slung" look of the ANH and ROTJ belts, if that makes sense.

Anyway, hope this helps. Good luck with the rest of your build, can't wait to see what you come up with!!

BTW, did you receive your Revell engine part?

Hi! Brian, thanks for the template. It's going to be very useful to finish my holster.

And regarding the Revell part, well, the mail service here in Argentina has been working quite oddly, lately. I haven't received any notification yet of your shipping. I'll have to wait... thanks, of course, I know that I'll have it... someday... Laughing
