Tahls new plated belt
« on: May 19, 2010, 11:55 AM »
not sure if this belongs in the soft good section or not? It's going to be a bunch of those black aluminum pates bolted to a belt (minus the Kama strap eyelet) and four of my new chop-glass with wood core ammo boxes.

so far the mold works great and need to get the chop-glass smushed in better on the next one but all in all pretty good.

the belt is an old gi pistol belt, in the back I have a few widths of plating to use ( for fit), the sanded down box is the ammo box, and the gray wooden thing in the right is the mold.

in this one, the center two plates (by the clasp) are already riveted in place. the boxes and tubes will be in tomorrow most likely and the other plates will be a work in progress since I snapped my metal cutting band saw blade (gotta hacksaw them now)


This one the front is as it will be but  I still have to cut out a lot of plates for the back section.

I dunno about making a run of them, I don't think most would like the price and especially the shipping, this thing weighs a nice few pounds. I guess I could research a bit and gather my receipts and try to come up with a price? I would also keep all the plates the same size on any others, I kinda want to keep mine different, that and I have more additions to come later (kama, thermal det tk style, and a few others)

 But anyway, I got it done today and I took a few pictures.





what ya think?

Very cool!  Definitely gives a space sci-fi look to the belt.

VERY nice! Do you mind a bit of emulation in my next design?

thanks for the kind words everyone, now I just need to get a few shots with it on my kit and see how it really looks. I just hope I don't need to make suspenders to help hold it in place, it seemed to stay where it was with regular clothing on and since it's been pre-fit for my flight suit and layers it should be a bit tighter looking when actually on.

 As I mentioned before about this belt, the cost to make it alone ( for anyone wanting to make their own) is around ~$70 give or take, and you'll need a few basic tools (drill, hack saw/metal band saw, drill bits, driver bit, & rivet gun)

If anyone else wants a parts break down I'll hook ya up, just let me know.

Yes! Very Nice! I'll be "borrowing" the look for my new kit in the near future. I f ya don't mind. I've always liked the plated look, This'll go nicely with the trooper style pouches  I created.
Cheers!
