Varian Update - Belt 4



I had to redo the belt buckle. I had drawn out a pattern, but between creating the pattern and building the buckle, I reversed the "depth" of the piece. The center is supposed to be raised above the sides, but somehow I got it in my head that the edges were above the middle. It was only after I made the post yesterday and looked a picture of the Varian Wrynn model that I realized my mistake.



Fortunatly, the fix was pretty easy; took the heat gun to the higher side pieces and removed them. I cut a diamond of craft foam to raise the center and glued that to the buckle. Then I took scrap of Wonderflex and molded that over the top of the buckle.

Fixed!
