I am nearing the end of my Fett journey and I just want to confirm the backplate/collar connection.
I have read a lot of ways to make the connection, velcro with the studs for show and using the studs as fixings.
I think I am leaning towards the studs as fixings. I just would like to get it right in my mind before I start drilling into the back plate and collar.
I will be using keyboard keys with chicago screws. What length of screw would you guys recomend? Do I fix inside the key the top part or female part of the screw with goop then fix the male part through the hole in the back plate. When you come to dressing put the screw threads through the holes in the collar and then use the keys to screw down and hold them both together.
What I would also like to clarify is: the collar is fixed to the vest, then the back plate is then fixed to the collar via the studs? So I am guessing getting dressed for a troop is a two man operation?
I hope that I have explained it ok. I might work on a sketch to show how I think it goes if my description is not clear enough.
