Mandalorian Scout Trooper – Tote Bag

Assessing the Details…

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”…

Since there are no photos of the little “rank bar greeblie” anywhere outside of screen shots from the series, there are all sorts of measurements and sources for parts running rampant on the costuming forums…

Here, I’ve laid out the parts I feel are the most accurate to try and figure out the length of the aluminum bar…

These pieces seem to be the most controversial as to what was actually used on the real prop. In my opinion, the red buttons are definitely sitting in some sort of black base, and the white part is definitely not just the inside part of the red button. I did a little work in my 3d designer software was able to 3d print these black bases for the red button lenses, and a solid white piece that is the same dimensions as the red button/base. I also found a galvanized nail that’s head is about the right size. So, I cut the majority of the nail off, leaving the head and just a small bit of the shaft…

Here are the buttons, assembled…

Testing out the size of the aluminum bar, before actually cutting the aluminum bar. Looks about right, to me…

I temporarily added the buttons to see how it looks…
