    Never thought I'd see you compared to a vintage Dan - you win by articulation advantage! Lol Sent from my SM-G390W using Tapatalk

    Patrick's ANH E11 build thread

    I like how you've installed the battery inside the magazine housing and accessible with magazine removal...exactly as how I did it, worked great! Dan made excellent points there, end cap clip slope looking a-ok Sent from my SM-G390W using Tapatalk

    Very cool modeling work - your completed e-11 will sure be one to marvel at, most excellent! Sent from my SM-G390W using Tapatalk

    Awesome start! Great progress so far ... don't forget to use a respirator if you do any more resin dremeling, these fine particulates wreak havoc on your lungs. Sent from my SM-G390W using Tapatalk

    Your build approach with so many differing elements really speaks of your design background. I too have opted for the slow and steady build approach, although at times, it does feel like I'm stuck in third year with no sight of graduation, if you catch my drift. May you focus all the more on your build targets and get things done in stages. Cheers! Sent from my SM-G390W using Tapatalk

    Also, double check you print based on the paper size of the document. So no stretch-to-fit and no manual fit adjustment to paper size you specify. Sent from my SM-G390W using Tapatalk

    Airsoft E-11/Sterling + Tino's + Doopys Build

    This will be an exciting build! I see.. you plan to add the doopydoos counter to the hengstler counter sockets? I see that it comes with shorter vent cover strip things...forget the name right now. With Tino completion set....excitement to come[emoji106][emoji1] Sent from my SM-G390W using Tapatalk
  8. Hey there Joseph, Very informative pictures, thank you. Not only will I get to sanding the sides of my caps, I will round off their edges to like what you've done. Your cylinders look awesome by the way! I like the hint of red insulation wire poking out over top, really screen accurate portrayal, nice touch

    FISD E-11 BLASTER REFERENCE

    Hi nizam, The certificate can be found here: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/32111-fisd-e-11-blaster-reference/?page=2&tab=comments#comment-417955 Or in the near-final pages of the E-11 Blaster Reference PDF ( see links below picture) : https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/32111-fisd-e-11-blaster-reference/
  10. Thanks guys, I'll keep to task. It was a fluke to find those valve caps, now to file away the bumpy surface. Looking forward to the central capacitors, after which I will add the scoop to get shape A. Thanks Andy for giving me permission to use his pictures. Sent from my SM-G390W using Tapatalk
  11. Hey Tino - they're aren't bumpy like that originally so I will take them away at some stage. Furthermore to share, I found the doopydoos version of the power cylinders pretty lacking, baseplate is all wrong from Length to Width to thickness (the latter can be explained from the resin molding process) Except for the cylinders themselves, I am not liking so much at all any other component of doopydoos here...
  12. Hello all, From the onset of setting out to modify my doopydoos power cylinders, I quickly realized it was just a simple representation of the real thing. I did a few mods right from the get-go: backplate shape, bottom plate width and thickness reduced.I also found the power cylinder lop-sided, weird. It was tilted to one side! As for additions, I filed away the resin end caps to replace them with metal plumbing valve caps. I sanded 2mm in their height. I then threaded the end caps to the resin outer cylinders. I then installed the bolt and nuts from Tinos completion set. I also created the ceramic tube that is inside the outer cylinders. Sometimes I wish I had a drill press to get precision vertical drilling, oh well. More pictures to come! Sent from my SM-G390W using Tapatalk

    E11 Blaster upgrade with BlastFX

    I see you recently purchased your BlastFX at it's version two glory! That LED strip is something else eh? I love how it shines yellow at the long blast setting. Genius idea using Velcro. I will take inspiration from you if I every go around getting a replacement BlastFX. ps. Glad you figured out a plan for the exposed bolt!

    E11 Blaster upgrade with BlastFX

    My exposed bolt is just a plate (in progress) I will put overtop of the opening. Your install is quite a bit more complex than mine with a shortened and yet movable exposed bolt with electronic motherboard inside. Perhaps wrap dense foam around the jet tail fin of the ejector? Perhaps it will be dense enough to stick to the fin without much adhesive? Proceed with caution though, would hate to see you malfunction your electronics like I did. Here, I have the ejector fin hole created on the tube and the ejector pokes into it. I had the electronic board sit a bit further down the exposed bolt window area and tried to keep wires away from it.
