TDK Belt - WIP


Greetings folks.

Its known by some that I have been dabbling in sculpting since Xmas. What I have been working on and towards is a screen accurate TDK/Begins Belt. Well, screen accurate as my very beginner skills will allow.

So tonight I thought I would share a pic of what I have thus far. These are just works in progress and still need a ton of work. But they are what I am calling masters for the time being.

The buckle is 2 pieces and about ready to pull a master mold off of. The other bare resin pieces were worked out last night and tonight and are basic shapes of what will be sealed and re molded. Hope you all enjoy ;)

I welcome any constructive criticism. As some times it takes an outsiders eye to spot an issue..

and as for connecting the parts, I'm crossing my fingers for:

it just seems to be the ideal way, even though not the easiest to achieve...

Every link in this belt will have pins in it. And the last two links before the larger rear links will have removable links/ability to add more..

The back connection will be a magnet closure, but the details of that are still up in the air. I have 4 different ways drawn up and am weighing cost vs labor vs durability. I can say that this will also be adjustable with spacers.. so you feel with 7 links its too tight.. but 8 is just way too loose.. well, this is where the spacers come into play. FULLY ADJUSTABLE.

Magnets. Magnets. I dont know just yet. I spent nearly the cost of the guano kit on magnets for the last belt i built.. and I may have something up my sleeve instead of magnets.. it is again a labor Vs cost Vs durability issue..

Accessories at this time are in the air. I was planning on two boxes and two tubes. But am uncertain. Feedback there would be great.

AND-- the belt in that tutorial that was linked in this thread (http://com1.runboard.com/bbrotherhoodofthebat.f4.t201015 )is going to be for trade one of these nights, when i get around to posting it.. unless someone speaks up in PM first.

Keith, you are off to a great start man.

I agree with you on the pins. I had been toying with that idea as well using a rod or pin running from the big link, through the smaller middle link and back into the big link. I am a huge fan of this idea.

I also like the way you rounded the sides of the middle links. Definitely more accurate like that.

I was also thinking about the magnet thing, and I agree that there has to be a better way. Even if you permanently attach the containers to the belt. Magnets offer a variety of issues. Things falling off, electronics being messed up, etc.

Dude, you are totally in the right track.

Put me on the list of the "Lucky Few" please. :up

I will also be sending my measurements this weekend (before Sunday). Thanks for being patient with me.
