A1. Chest Box
Started to prepare the chest box, it,s 3D printed, but the box didn't fit in the whole, so i had to sand.


- - - - -

... bought today this meter, for the belt clip. I could order a belt clip, but to be honest, it's cheaper this way.

Sunday 10 June 2018



... put the belt clip on the chestbox. And sanded the center, i think someting went wrong during printing, the center box didn't fit, had a lot issues to get it straight as possible.
Next step, go to Kortrijk for a green led > pre-install > paint (primer, color, varnish). + hose.

E. Shoes/Boots.
Thu 7 June 2018 ...


... started to adjust the boots, cut of the calf. I watched many pictures, and notice the size of Poe's boot, so i went to a shoemaker he will remove a little bit more, sew. The shiny think on the heel, will be removed and replaced with something black.

J2. Bandolier.

Collecting the gear, to make the bandolier.
- Straps, i bought case straps from Action for less than 2 Euro, it's lot cheaper than order it fron Strapworks.
- Thread/Velcro ... are from Veritas.
Still need ... screws + rings.
- - - - -
Sunday 10 June 2018
Started the preparation of the straps, first made an cut template.

Cut straps, and with a lighter i burn the cutting thread.

Cut velcro.

Prepare for the screw wholes, to attach the flares.

- - - - -
Sat. 16 June 2018, continue with the mis-en-place for sewing the bandolier. So that Laysay doesn't loose time by fishing out how what works.



I used 4mm revits (Viva Naaiatelier, Ieper), 3mm screws/rings/nuts (Euroshop, Roeselare). Also i am blessed with a dad with a huge tool collection.

A2. Hose
Sat. 16 June 2018 ...

This hose. Thanks with help of Rebel Legion Pilots, i found out the origin of this hose. 20MM UNREINFORCED FLEXIBLE FUEL FILLER HOSE ... it's available in the U.K. i contacted a few times the company, that made/have/sale this hose, only they don't react. Found someone on Etsy, but he is sold out, when it will be back in stock ???
(https://www.starwars.com/news/nycc-2017-star-wars-the-last-jedi-props-gallery) ... only this is The Last Jedi version. So, i took the bus and did a little tour of different stores, i went to Ieper, Diksmuide, Reninge, Poperinge, Izegem & Roeselare. And found something that look-a-like in the Hubo. Cross me fingers it will be (temperory) accepted.



... bought a hose + connector. Busy with adjusment of the connector, so it fit in the chestbox whole.

Don’t they have gift cards or credit cards you can load and use that pay pal that way. Or find someone you know and trust. See if they have pay pal. And ask them if you give them money and put it in their pay pal and send it to you that way.

Hey Mawee ...

... thank you for your advice.

I life in a weird country, Belgium. Thanks, to our 6 governments, we have complex laws.

Since a while, i got permittion for an social worker, to have a Pre-Paid Mastercard.

To open a PayPal account in Belgium, i need to have a Visa/Mastercard, something to do with safeguard/guarentee.

And, i am happy that Etsy accept Pre-Paid Mastercard.
I need to order few more items, but i have to wait until those items are back in stock.

Let's say i'm almost finished with the build of the accesoires. Then i have first safe money for the build of the soft parts. For this i will need ask help ... but i will wait until the moment is their.

- - - - -

In the hope Trump and our politicians, stop with bullying us with customs/import costs.
