I have a 14' croc to put together. I have done a smaller 4 alligator and a bunch of croc and gator rugs...(but rugs don't really count ;D) rhinos, and elephants, so feel competent to take on the project. The skin comes together on the form quite nicely I think... got lucky...but what can I expect for shrinkage? On the main body, the skin comes together without the skin in between the plates stretched. Second question, but related to shrinkage. The legs seem short on the form, according to the skin and very loose. I am using the McKenzie CRC302LS. If any one has experience with that form, are the legs short, or should all that skin be gathered up?
