If people will buy them by all means. At the moment I'm still experimenting with finishes to see what looks most authentic and lasts.

Dark brown will be doable - one of the colours I'm experimenting with.

I was wearing original belts and buckles since I was 16. Now I needed new ones and since the replicas for sale are no good, I am doing them myself. The leather is 3.5 mm thick and I am buying it cut to size (45 mm wide), the hook is from a fleabay shop (MILITANO in Czech Republic) and is the late WW1 pattern, all in all one belt cost me about £22 and 3 hours of work. I am doing the version with the hidden stitching (typical Luftwaffe) as well as with visible stitching. The finished belt i am painting with Fibings Listerine, that gives a thougher surface.
Some in the group are starting to bully me into supplying belts to them as well ; - ) I take that as a compliment!

Currently I am working on Y-Straps, I have the metal parts (most parts are original) apart from the rivets, but I think I have found them now. I am trying to buy a good quality replica (see my thread about Y-Straps) but looks like there is no good leather ones out there.
