Nice tutorial lateapex.....

I too have found these PE kits to be very nice. I have used PE belts in 1/12, 1/16, 1/18, 1/20, 1/24, etc. There are several brands out there but for 1/18 Tremonia is just about the best IMHO.

In some cases I have even gotten some hem border material from a local sewing of craft store in white. The border material is not expensive at all. One nice thing about the hem border is it usually has the sewing seams already in them to replicate real belts. Then use permanent color markers to color the white any color I need (red, blue, yellow, green, black, etc.). I have found that the permanent markers make an even solid color without changing the playability or thickness of the cloth like paint can.

As for gluing the wrapped ends, gel or thicker types in little moderation will work without and seepage through the cloth.

Nice pic's everyone...

Does anyone know where to buy these Tremonia 4-point cam-lock PE kits? The only kit tremonia has on ebay.uk is this 3-point one: https://www.ebay.co....r-/152746849026
