I adjusted to 9mm down and 13mm on from the edge. Looks about right to me. 

Well I’m back. Life has been crazy since my last post.   On with the torso assembly. I cut some strips to help in gluing the snap plates. I am starting the strapping on the chest, back plate

One complete set of arms. I found the thicker outer cover strips pull the forearms out a little. Probably still needs a little shaping but not as drastic as before. Thigh trimming begins tomorrow.

On with the torso assembly. I cut some strips to help in gluing the snap plates. I am starting the strapping on the chest, back plate and shoulders.

I guess I am rusty. After months of researching the measurements for the butt plate male snaps, I measured 5/8” and 1 3/8” and centered the holes. If you can see from my picture, I actually measured 1 3/16” which put the holes too close together...something i didn’t notice until after drilling the holes. After drilling the correct hole, you could see light through the extra hole that wasn't covered by the snap. So I got a leather punch, punched an ABS plug and used the snap to keep it in place. The process was infinitely more frustrating than that. Hopefully this passes approvals.

Nice positioning of the snap plates to the ends of the butt plate, many position these too short and the butt plate can flare out.

 

Nice work, coming along great
