Default Re: Luke's yoda backpack info?

Thanks superjedi, I can't really base a pattern on a model but it does give a good general impression of the shapes involved.

We grabbed our copy of Empire and froze on a few of the key scenes. Looking at the outside construction it doesn't look like something straight off the shelf, but looking at the scene where Yoda is sitting next to the backpack revealed a few bits (I'll upload pics once I get the screenies on this computer.)

It looks like a military surplus duffel or haversack that has been cut to remove the top, the webbing on the front is standard issue nylon webbing that is either 2.5 or 3 inch (can't tell as I don't know how large or small Mark Hamell's hands are, but I'd lean more towards the 2.5)

When I get some time I'll do some sketches for you with my best guesses as to measurements and see if I can find a supplier with matching hardware.
