Recently I received my Darth Vader ESB Belt from Parts & Technical. I finally got a chance to take some pictures so I thought I’d post some here. I’m really happy with it! :)

I was even able to get it all wired up so that all the lights work!

Great belt. Do you have plans to weather it?

The belt came weathered. The last photos didn’t really show it too well.

It wasn’t that hard to wire up at all. Once I had a good plan on what I wanted to do it was relatively simple. I used one red LED and two white LEDs for the green buttons (so that they would glow the correct teal color). Each box is powered by a 9volt battery.

The biggest problem I had was trying to figure out how to diffuse the light enough to light up the entire green rectangle. I finally discovered that five layers of medical tape over the light opening had a nice effect.

Wow, very nice acquisition there. It's nice to see various details there, and this is by no means crude. Good show!

Very nice. Thanks for posting the pics. I always wondered about the ESB belt from P&T.
