Working on my Sandtrooper armor (AM 2.0 kit), and have a couple of questions that I can't seem to find a definitive answer on...or one that I understand, anyway. lol
Question 1: Using the Billgram for rivet placement, I measured down 22mm from the top of the ab section, then spaced out per the diagram (52mm & 53mm). That leaves a longer portion towards the cod than in the Billgram pic. (Arrows pointing left in the below photo). For comparison, I measured the center of the ab plate, then spaced the rivets 52mm up and 53mm down from there (arrows pointing right in the photo). Which marks should I be going with?
Question 2: I don't need to shim or trim the kidney or butt plate, so I just need to cut the kidney notch (marked by blue tape). My question is, do I need to trim the sides of the butt plate back to meet where the notch is, or leave as is, with the butt plate forming the bottom of a square?
Thanks in advance for all help and advice!
