I second that all of what has been said; outstanding work....!! Are you going to offer some for sell? Where you get your leather from and how do you make your soles?

I have a Question.

I'm trying to make the Look alike Altama Desert Boots. But using the Sole from the BBI Boots.

How long did it take you to make them boots? What did you use? Is it thin Leather or is it the Plether stuff.?

Thank you for all your opinions.

I bought cowhide at hobby shop.
the shop sell sewing-tool,clothes,leather,and other.
I think best place of leather are Europe and North America land.,and Australia too.
almost osw member get leather easy than Japanese people.
and low price,right?
and you find easy friend of leather worker.
my case is Sgt.Doggy.(I was taught many things by Sgt.Doggy not leather only.)
many times asked him.
I can't remind how many times I asked him.

next procedure is very simple itemization.
when you try,you find other doubts.
I think better you make friend of leather worker for the occasion.

1.make a shoe stretcher
I make a shoe stretcher.
put resin into dragon boots.
and adjust body shape.

2.make a pattern template.
(I use celluloid picture for animated cartoon.
because,I use same pattern many times and very wild use.)
3.main part of full leather(this part is using for cloth version.)
4.heel another version.
5.lace part.(one piece version)
6.lace part.(two pieces version)
7. for add to No.6.lace part.(two pieces version)

3.cut sole off boot.
(I have many dragon boots.)

cut leather using pattern.
and sewing.(I use sewing machine.)

5.adjust body shape.
put sewed leather into water.
and fitting to shoe stretcher.

6.dress up?
add eyelet,small hook or something.

7.built up.
built boot,addition sole and body and toe. (I used instant adhesive)

I made this combat speed lace boot in a week.
maybe more short,if I can be good pupil.

I have no words.

AWESOME :wideyes

I agree that's easier to buy pieces of leather outside Japan, but you japanese guys are the best artists in building miniature things.

Where did you get all the metal inlets and hooks?

Lucky you to have Doggy as your teacher. :thumb

I loved the tutorial, keep them coming.

Absolute outstandig work and thank you for sharing your tutorial.
This are the best boots I have ever seen in 1:6 scale.

Thank you for all opinions.

about materials.
small eyelet is sold by computer shop for building motherboard or another parts.
town like a Akihabara area in Japan.
a few times, we could find hobby shop.
I heard that using well to railway model making.

hook parts are named "Bead Tip Bottom Clamp-On" or "b-tip".
we call "DARUMA" sometime.
It's sold by beans-shop or accessories-shop.
also price is 100 yen per 10pic.
many shops sell like this (
I think this tip that using to end of wire usually.
and need addition more detail this parts.

If you find more better items,please teach me.
looking for good material is very hard in Japan too.
and when I find good material,joyful.

special thanks to Doggy.

thank you,and have a nice weekend.

I am going to have to go out and get me a mini sewing machine now for sure.....!!

09-25-2004, 13:01

Thanks for sharing your knowledge. :thumb

That b-tip is kinda easy (and cheap) to find, but I couldn't find the small eyelets here at the electronic parts shops. :sadshake

I doubt we can find better materials than those you are using. Never thought about using them to do this kind of job. Very inventive.

Thanks again.

Thanks man, I'll take a look there. ;-)

Binbo, what thickness of leather did you use for your boots.... 2 oz. ??

09-29-2004, 06:00
I used cow leather.
that leather is ox or cow,I don't know.
using leather is normal tanning,not chrome tanning,not oil tanning,just tanning.(inside boot part leather is chrome tanning leather.)
we used leather called "TANROO".
I don't have knowledge about leather very much.
next time,I would ask sgt.Doggy about real name in English.

my boot is really light weight.(I don't know OZ system.)
not difference dragon and mine so much of weight.
when I made this boot,
I cutting 1.5mm thickness leather to 0.5mm by my hand.
if you have possible to order to cutting thickness leather,
I think better between 0.5mm and 0.8mm.
sometime you need 1.0mm.
if sewing leather on leather,
answer is small one,right?
you are able to find better way try and try,again and again.
if you find better way,teach us,please.
good luck!
thank you.

Thanks Binbo, I will check into the types of leather. I just sent off for a couple of catalogs and will go by a store that sells the stuff to see what I can see on what I need. Again, I appreciate you sharing you How-to with us. Here is a good site for leather that I have just found out about.....
