 Forum: Uniforms   Topic: Width of GBFans Black Pistol Belt (GBII style)?

The GBFans "GB2-style" belt is not 3" wide. The screen-worn belts were 3", but the belts in the shop are closer to 2 - 2.25".

They didn't actually change the angles on any of the Proton Packs. Ray's GB2 Semi-Hero pack was built with a more angled V-hook, but the rest were unmodified. :)

Not a bad look at all - different, but definitely in spirit with the original concept.

No need to be bitter; all printing shops have to adhere to copyright law, and I'm sure the guy working there didn't want to get fired.

I ordered two Ion Arm caps (GB1 & GB2) from Chris, and they're absolutely perfect. He responded to my PM within the hour and had them shipped within a few days.

Thanks, chief!

I also noticed this interesting bur on the inner side of the rear thrower grip. Even in person it was hard to identify - it might be a bolt, drip of epoxy, or possibly cast into the grip itself. http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/q633/demon-vice-commander/cropped%20DVC%20Venkman%20Hero%208832.jpg

They just have two left right? The murray and the sony lobby hero?

Spengler is sold, and isn't another one sold? (the ass crack photo one)


The latter would be the Stantz pack that's privately owned in the UK. The only pack unaccounted for is the Omni/Zeddemore pack.

That bumper wire is confusing me...greatly. Julz and I were discussing the possibility of the bumper on the Venkman Hero actually being a semi-hero bumper (resin layer + expanding foam) with the wire cast in to give it support. It's also possible that this bumper is solid cast in a semi-rigid resin...

Well, we know the bumpers were cast in resin, so they might have put some wire along the edges of the mold and poured the resin over it to give it some extra strength. http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/q633/demon-vice-commander/wire%20DVC%20Venkman%20Hero%208803.jpg http://i1167.photobucket.com/al...

Thanks, everyone! I do a lot of hand-sewing for my other costuming projects, so this wasn't anything out of the ordinary. I was expecting to be a lot more difficult, but the webbing is pretty easy to stitch through, so long as you're using a strong needle.

This was a secret project that Julz and I had been working on over the past few months. We started off by analyzing some of the super straps from the GB2 Hero packs (mainly the Venkman Hero) and sourcing the appropriate materials. The first task was to remove the original LC-1 padding from the strap...

Looks like you're off to a good start. :)

For the backing, you can also use a white or grey 3" polypropylene. The Spengler belt just had regular interfacing, but the Venkman belt was backed in a light grey nylon.

Velcro possibly I just have it wedged in between the two spots where the band connects to the backing; just make sure you make your board a little wide so it will sit snugly inside the holster.

I can't tell from the photo and when I look to buy some, I can find white but not a light grey. I've found silver, is that it? I used the silver grey that Strapworks offers for my set of fob...
