So holsters: There are 2 holsters we see for the officers, This is the only one we have refs for on the controllers and is in the standard. I've found a couple of generics with holsters and you can't make out the detail, but its presumed its this one. (this one is also approvable for the TFA melton jacket officer and the TLJ melton jacket officer).

Disclaimer.......I is not a leather guru, I just blunder my way through. But here's how I did it.

I started with a block paper pattern and tinkered till it was a bout right, then put it onto card, made any adjustments and traced off onto the leather. I used veg tan leather (this one is a little thick, but I wanted to use it up). I scored the inside of each line to be folded and wet the leather to mold it round the gun, when it was almost dry, I unfolded bits then I used a leather fork to create the stitching holes, lined up the holes and stitched with waxed thread. I glued the front section with eco leather glue, once it was dry I used a damp sponge with eco flo water based leather dye and rubbed it in......It needs one more layer I reckon and some carnuba wax to seal it.

I wish I could be Navy.

The holster looks great. That is some nice leather work.

Thanks guys, I just need to put the fastenings in and it's done. I think it will be the last time I do SA fabric unless it has stretch it in.

Was tinkering with the hair yesterday....wookie blend colour braid hai., I think I'm going to mix a little light brown in as well. I managed to remember how to plait the hair straight in to my own hair.

I'm going to apply with my hair up, but just a mention if I have facial neuralgia or a really bad migraine (I have serval rare types) I might have to wear it down sometimes....I'll mention to the judges, just don't want people to think I'm just flouting the rules.

I've also order a new Glie......I was holding out for a 44D which is TLJ accuarate, but I think it will be awhile longer. I also intend to get an E16-HFE. As they are not easy to get for a reasonable cost accurately, it something me and Lee Rossi will be working on.
