Hi everyone... any idea on how to replace the leather straps for hood on CMC and BBR models? Any after market supplier out there? or any scratch build ideas?

Over time these straps have fallen off and am trying to make the model complete but lacking suitable ideas (and guess skills) here :(

You could search hobby stores for various model building and diorama building items to see if there's something similar for parts. Another option would be to get photoetched buckles and a leather patch for clothes (like the ones for sleeves on older suit jackets) in the right color and cut leather straps from there then add the photoetched buckles and clue them in place.
