help...clone belt

Post by Rockstar » Sun Oct 19, 2014 3:37 pm

I need help with my clone belt. I don't know how to get the belt parts to fit and get them put together. If there is someone in the grand rapids area that would be able to get together with me and put me on the right track, I would be very grateful. Thanks

I've put together a few of these. What kind of belt, and what are the problems you are having?

Having trouble with getting the front and back to fit. It's the hard plastic belt. I might have cut the back to short, not sure

Here is my build thread. I may have some shots of the issue with my belt as I was building it.
http://forum.clonetroopers.net/index.ph ... opic=18312

Also, I have a build thread on here for the same 442nd build.

Let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

Use a hosting site for your pics, as opposed to you attaching them. flickr, photobucket, etc.

Did you look here for the belt assembly instructions?

BBC527's link to his build thread showed how he was able to add length to his belt. You should check that out.
