  1. You're right, but I'll have to move the hole. It's an easy fix. The top cover isn't squared, but slightly askew. So it will only fit one way. And thanks!
  2. Personally I find the difference to the better.
  3. Thanks. It still need a lot of work though. The magazine is sanded and painted. The housing is not. The print lines are more evident IRL though. And it is a plus that I can print it in black ABS. The inside of the magazine is large enough for me to place the batteries that'll run all of the light and sound extravaganza! I'm thinking of 3D modeling a battery holder that will fit perfectly inside the magazine, and make magnetic locking system.
  4. More progress. The parts for the magazine and housing has been printed. It still needs a lot of scratch built details. The Power Cylinders are fixed in place with screws. I know these are not originally there. But I'd Rather secure my parts as best as I can. The screws will be painted later, along with the weathering process.
  5. I needed more room for indoor plumbing. And had two options. 1. Use the DD resin I already have, and these have all the correct Sterling text and markings. But will have to be Dremmeled out. 2. 3D print, and loose the markings. I chose the second option. Firstly, a lot of the text and markings will get covered underneath the Power Cylinders. And a lot of them are sitting on the underside. They are cool, But I don't consider them a huge loss. Especially as I'm already removing texts from a bunch other places. The Magazine is being printed without a huge part of the side wall. I will replace this with a piece of plastic sheet. Much easier than sanding print lines within the wave pattern.
  6. I thought about it. But the area for gluing these in place is very small, and they would easily break off. So I purposefully left them off. Barely visible are also two supports I made underneath the cylinders. To make sure, if pressure was placed on them, they wouldn't break or bend.
  7. The first thing I did when I started this project, was to order a resin kit from DD. Along with the M38, and the Hengstler as resin castings as well. So far I have remade the M38, the Hengstler, and now the Power Cylinders. And I will probably redo a few other things before I'm done. I Wonder If I will have a complete DD resin kit as spares. And could just these into the E11 I set out to build?
  8. Work has commenced on the M38 as well. The 3D print was sanded roughly. Just to know down the worst of the print lines. Then I added the texture effect, to simulate it being cast metal. On top of the texture I sprayed it with a filler primer, just to knock down the effect a bit. After this dried, the tops of the texture was sanded lightly. To give it a softer appearance. And finally it was spray painted with a flat black. After this I will add chipping in the paint to show some of the brass that supposedly is underneath. As well as other weathering effects.
  9. The metal mesh has been installed in the front of the Hengstler. It'll be painted black, this is just to show it more clearly.
  10. 3D print are in progress. They have been printed, and today I started prepping them. I ran into a few problems, as I'm new to 3D printing, but got it solved. I had the three tubes on the Hengstler in the print, but they got damaged when I tried to drill them out. So now they're brass tubing instead. Perhaps a little too large. The M38's body will be covered with a cast texture, therefore I'm not putting too much work into cleaning it up. And I'm getting more and more surplus, as the project evolves. Now the DD M38 and Hegstler I bought are just extra bits. Either for a later more static build. Or will be sold.
  11. The parts for the M38 and the Hengstler are ready for print in ABS. The the large rear scope ring will be printed in this batch. And replaced later with a resin printer. But two things still prevent this. I need to finish the lettering. Haven't decided on which style yet. And I have to have a smalle course in the resin printers, before I can use them.
  12. Just as I redrew the M38, I have also redrawn the Hengstler counter. I'm undecided on wether I shall have an Eagle logo on the side, or something more 'In Universe Styled'. And the window on the rear that normally shows the numbers still need to be cut out. But I plan to place a small display screen here, and I still need to measure the size. The front will have a mesh installed inside at the bottom, at the 'roundish' shapes, and the side that faces the Sterling as well as the bottom now has a grill pattern. Both to better let out the sound of the speakers I want to install inside.
  13. Thanks. The tear should be the right size, but id not I can make it bigger when then prints are done. I'll compare it to my DD casting of the M38. I might add a number there, numbers are after all canon. Just haven't fully decided yet wether or not one will go there or not. Or even which number.
