: : :I made almost ten or more whips, three satchels and three shirts.
: I change form of seven or more hats.A tailor made leather jacket for me.All this things are far from calling them "good".I didn`t have Internet so I didn`t have pictures, abilites of ordering Indy`s clothes and items.In Poland where I live, I have only a movies.Did enybody had that problem too? If somone did maybe he could give me some advices, like: where to find plans or good pictures of Indy`s satchel, shoes, shirt or anything. Most of things are too far from Poland or too expensive. Only jacket from Wested Leather is not (I will order it soon). By the way, what do you think about our mania of
: colecting Indy`s items? Is it normal or we all should go to a doctor?

: Is it glued?I mind, does the straps are joined each-other by glue?

Hi John, youíre best bet for information and photos of Indyís gear is Indyís Diggs.
As far as I know, David Morgan does not use glue. Normally waxed cord and sometimes Tacks are used to tightly bind the leather strips for braiding. Then over that they use various complex knot works to finish it off to secure the hold. If youíre interested In whip making, check out David Morganís book, its full of great information. Hope this helps.
As for Indy Mania I think we are all just very dedicated fans and collectors.
