Here are the pics I mentioned in my earlier post. I got the how to add laces to these shoes from ScanmanDan's tutorial. The repainting I got from looking at pics in the Spec Figures book. It had to come from pics, since I cannot read Japanese :) . I need to find a new lace material for the boots. What I used is some jute twine, which just does not look right. The laces on the shoes is some black leather cord. Let me know what you think of them, thanks,

man the weathering on the boots is excellent. for the eyelets: are you shure there are not smaller one? IMO they are to big, try smaller ones, but you have good skills! :thumb

Hey Cris, thanks a lot for the skills comment, I really do appreciate that, especially coming from one of the masters :). I also thought the eyelets were too big, but they are the smallest I could find. I could not find any smaller. Please let me know if you have any ideas or recommendations, as I would love to get some smaller, as well as some different cording for the laces as well. Thanks a lot for the reply,

Search out "1/16th eyelets" in google and it will retrieve a bunch of online sources.


I have used Rubber Baby Bumpers (http://www.rubberbaby.com/) for mine. BTW, thats damn good weathering on your footwear:thumb

there are some VERY TINY eyelets that can be found in most arts and crafts stores (like Michael's, Jo-ann's Fabrics and Hobby Lobby). they come in different colors and are found in the "scrapbook making" section. Think they're called "paper snaps" or something like that.

this is what the package of 75 eyelets looks like; BEWARE the package sells for about US$3.00, but some places will sell 1/16th eyelets for 10 cents apiece! :sadshake

Devilguns: Those are exactly what I was trying to get to. They look awesome!!!! I really appreciate the link. I will get right out a buy some of those. BTW, what type of string or cord did you use? That is something else I had a terrible time locating at Joanns. Thanks again for the assistance!!!!

Numbrsix: Those eyelets you mentioned are the ones I bought. I got them from the scrapbook section at Joanns, and they were the smallest they had in the store. I bought a pack that had a bunch of different colors, and cost something like $13 or there abouts.

Thanks for the kudos on the weathering guys. Stinny helped me a lot in that area, Thanks Stinny!!

Hopefully, now, with Devilgun's help, I can go out and get the needed pieces to do what I was trying to do in the first place.
