New belt and buckle
« on: February 25, 2019, 08:23:53 PM »
So I made myself a new belt last week. I'm really pleased with it, but I've had this buckle for at least 20 years and decided I wanted something different.

I looked around on eBay and found several like this one. It's cast aluminum and a really good likeness of a 51 Navy. They were selling in the $50 range and I didn't want to pay that much for it. But I found the auction for this one and the opening bid was low. So I put a bid of $20 in on it, and I got it for $15!!

It's a nicely made piece. Lots of detail. I may finish it like a real gun. Color the grips and such. Should be a good conversation starter.

Nice. Scooby made me this belt and holster. I supplied the buckle. It's by far my favorite.
