Only way to do it properly is to modify the parts. Its very rare i get a look look out of the box. I often find pouches and equipment can get in the way. The problem with plastic figures is that they are hard plastic. People are soft and squidgy.

Some of the more modern figures have a better look, what brand do you tend to use.

I've got a dragon kit #3021. It German paratroopers World's elite forc series. It was a mistake on a order. I just thought I'd put it together. I guess I'll just have to use some putty to get it look right. At least I'll get to work on my putty skills

Just checked it out. One problem i often have is when you have weapons going between the arm, usually right, and the body. Thats when equipment such as ammo pouches get in the way. Try thinning down any of then on the back. Try test fitting the arms useing white glue, easy to remove. You might find you get better poses if the arms are not intended position. Once you have worked out the best place, you can modify the join.
