Seat Belt Material


Recommended Posts

Looking for some more of this material but it appears I can no longer find a good link for them. Or at worse case when I can source this material from possibly one of the arts & crafts shops.

Thanks in advance your assistance.

The weave of 1/16" ribbon does not look very realistic for seat belts. 

This question came up here in the past (I'm sure more than ones).  Last time someone recommend searching for 2mm and 4mm silk ribbon on amazon.  I bought about half a dozen of the 2mm ribbons (different colors) and they are far superior in appearance to craft ribbon.  it is also not as stiff (softer) as craft ribbon. Highly recommended.

 

Edit: found the post about silk ribbon.

A matter of opinion. Not perfect but not that bad.

Well, some people like steak, others prefer meatloaf.  Whatever works. I just presented an alternative.

I have probably 10 different colors of standard 1/16" I bought at a craft store over 10 years ago. I have used it on some models, but once I discovered the silk ribbon, I will not use the regular ribbon again.  Again, my preference.
