  1. My local hobby shop tells me that Testors/Model Masters paints are being discontinued. Permanently... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. No, these are just PLA. I’m a beginner and it’s all I’ve played with so far. I suppose ABS would offer better strength and material compatibility. I envision just gluing these on with E6000. I’d propose we get a team together and get this idea developed, tested and perfected. Offer the .STL files on forum here for anyone to use for free. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’m trying to play with some 3D printed closure “housings” to help mount, align and protect the magnets. One design idea: I suck at CAD design and might need one of you as a CAD jockey volunteer to try some other design ideas... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Initial PayPal sent November 12th for Original order (ESB E-11). At the time, He said, “about four weeks” I had inquired SIX different times Then I hear February 4th he sends me a note via Facebook Messenger saying that he’s made a mistake and made an ANH version E-11 instead. I ask him about selling in me that one for the $300 I paid for the ESB one and asked if he would make another ESB at a discount. He suggested half off his fee of $300 , so $150. I agreed and he said it would be soon. Feb 12th, And I just sent him the money for the ESB variant place. Still no original delivery.
  6. I did just that AND went ahead and paid his 3% fee. I told him I did this (goodwill) but it still took a looooong time and 1001 excuses before I got mine. I really doubt that Etsy orders will get you a blaster any faster, but probably just better buyers protection. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. It’s in about the same spot. Don’t worry, I’d bet money it’s not something that would prevent you from making Centurion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Glad you finally got yours, Cory. Nice that yours came with the upgraded pieces. You can see what I'm talking about in my E-11 blaster review and photo comparison. I'm hoping to have him send me those parts and attach after the fact. My H-counter doesn't have brackets either, BTW.
  9. Thank you, Glen. And he and I discussed just this point at some length. Ultimately, say what you'll do, then do what you say. If it goes astray from that, let your customer know right away. I think most reasonable people would be willing to play by those rules.
  10. This shows the missing D-rings. About 15minutes worth of work and the metal D-ring is installed and looks like it’s supposed to be there. Both D-rings installed! Yayy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. These are real and actual magazines from two other weapons I own. I decided to show these as an example of just how accurate the patina is compared to the prop E-11 blaster. VERY CLOSE to used and worn metal. The colors and characteristics of weathering is excellent. (Being a dentist, one of the hardest things I do is taking a dissimilar material and making it look like something else, i.e. composite resin or porcelain and making it look like tooth enamel. This is rubber, that looks like parkerized metal. Superb!) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. This is a Darman's Props (ETSY) 8oz leather holster. Its actually for the ESB variant, but since I had the ANH version first, I conditioned the leather and set it to hold the ANH version in hopes that it would fit just as nice. It did! Its a VERY nice holster and the two props are right on the same scale and fit each other perfectly. Highly recommended holster for either of these E-11 Blasters. Of course, Darman's makes ANH type. The photo below shows the enhanced front end that eliminates the casting seam line and cleans up the business end. Nice upgrade!
  13. Here is a nice shot of the ESB variant E-11 below. It is most easily recognizable by the missing power cylinders and Hengstler counter. This version also has all of the newest upgraded bells and whistles from Hellhounds Props. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hello Troopers! I wanted to post a series of photos of the latest (April 2021) E-11 blasters from Daniel at Hellhounds Props and post some comments about my journey with these. I’m a beginner in all this costuming and still working on my first armor. I first decided on an ESB troop variant build. I started with just my AM 4.5 helmet, but quickly got hooked so I’m all in! I had seen some great examples of E-11 blasters throughout the forum pages here on FISD. Easily, the photo reviews of the prop weapons that Daniel at Hellhounds Props makes really interested me. So, I contacted Dan
