Mandalorian Scout Trooper – Tote Bag, Completed

The Strap…

While I don’t have a Mandalorian style Scout Trooper costume, I thought it would be fun to make a Tote Bag from season 1 of “The Mandalorian”…

The bag that was used on the actual prop is an English World War 2 era pack (model P37). I was lucky enough to acquire one before word got out. Now, it’s a lot tougher to find them, and the prices have gone way up. Anyway, the strap connects to the small straps on the bag, so you just have to eyeball it and make your marks…

Since the material is so hard to cleanly drill through, I decided to try applying super glue to the area and then drilling through it after it was dry…

This method makes drilling the holes a lot easier. You just have to keep applying more super glue as you drill down…

Marking the second set of holes…

This is where they will be drilled…

Here is the back side after the binding screws were installed…

And, the front view…

The same steps were repeated for the other end of the strap. And, here’s the finished prop…

Complete with a captured Grogu. I will just do a little more weathering, mainly to the button bar, but I’m calling this complete…
