Blackhawk is importing an excellent quality leather holster/mag pouch combo that's cut for either stong side or cross draw. Leather and workmanship is great and I have been using this rig in my rotation for more than 2 years.

Is there a link or model for the blackhawk?

Try these makers for "old west" cross draw holsters. Heck, you could get the whole cowboy rig.
El Paso Saddlery
Andrews Custom Leather, try the "Urbane Cowboy"

Now that Cowboy Action Shooters and SASS have decided that given what was shown in the popular western, The Wild Bunch which takes place about 1914, the 1911 Colt .45 pistol is indeed a wild-west handgun. Thus I am sure you will find all kinds of western (movie) style leather will be available. Someone in the above links should also be able to fix you up.
And looking in another direction, from about 1930 through the 1960's the Colt Automatic was popular with some Texas Rangers, who sometimes carried them in pairs, in fancy carved leather holsters with matching belts. Never noticed one in cross-draw however.
