Star Wars: A New Hope

Han Solo Holster

I've had a proper Han Solo blaster for many years, but no way to wear it about. This gun belt and holster is based on the one Harrison Ford wore in Star War: A New Hope. It's completely scratch built from leather and aluminum. I learned a lot about working with leather. It took me four attempts (and a lot of wasted cow) to get the color right. I also got to wet-mold the leather to form the pouches and the gun holster. All the metal buckles were cut by hand, and the tools in the belt pouches are a combination of 3D printed and scratch built. And yes, it feels as bad-ass to wear as you think it would.
