Another Doopy Doos E-11, pimped build..

Recommended Posts

Started my build today....great way to spend time.

 

I have looked at a lot of other builds, many of them extremely well made.

 

I bought my Doopydoos kit a while ago, along with some other ones ( Hasbro conversion and DL-44 Greedo Killer).

 

I want to pimp my build, like I have seen others do, but I do not plan on buying a real Scope or Hengstler...at least not with this build.

 

Everything has been trimmed/sanded/ground.

Real M6 screws at the muzzle and at the pistolgrip

Ground out part of the butt.

 

And the holes in the folding stock

I have made dowels out of cutoff toothpicks, to make it more sturdy.

I plan on attaching everything with dowels, superglue and/or epoxyglue

Made the folding stock semi functional, and more sturdy by inserting screws ( the heads will be filled with putty ofcourse).

The rear sight has had the serrated part enhanced with a nail file, and the hole has been drilled out

Working trigger, made with a small nail/pin, and the spring from a ballpen..

lookin good!

 

the rear sight does not have a hole in the sides on a real sterling.  that's your only flaw.

Finished the magazine, and also the bolt (the handle off one of the boys play rakes), cockinghandle (attached a screw so that it screws down into the bolt) and spring, which I made from a wire coathanger, wrapped around a metal rod, from my closet, that I normally put my coathangers on).

Additionally I ground the Hengstler counter, and will cut out areas to put in my number (when I eventually get one) make the counter reset button, and window as well...

 

Now it is glueing time...

Added a pin to keep the folding stock in place, and also screwed the pistolgrip on.....

In addition to this I made the Hengstler bracket and the scope rail....(pictures later).

Nice!

You will probably finish before me in this pace :D

Thnx again, yeah probably will..., but then again I think mine is the easier build of the two

Nearly ready for the painting.

Considering to wait until I enlist and get my TK number before I fix the "display" on the Hengstler counter. But I will prepare everything for it.

I also need to come up with a decent solution for the scope ends....anyone know where to find the decals for that?

I finished with a light sanding overall, and tomorrow will be painting, and maybe scope and Hengstler....

Coming along nicely, before you paint just give all the parts a good wash will soapy water, some releasing agent can be left on the resin parts and reacts with paint ;)

Thnx, also for the advice, I washed everything in soapwater before assembly, and I wiped the entire blaster down with alcohol (the non imbibeable version) last night....but I'll give it a quick wash this morning, justfor good meassure☺

Just primed, with a primer specifically made for plastic. It is transparent ( much to my surprise).

 

Painting and assembly will be done today. Then comes weathering, scope ends, and Hengstler counter...hope to finish it before the weekend......

David! :) 
No special paint, just not the cheapest one. I normally spray on some varnish, to help protect the paintjob, but last time I used it, on another blaster, it screwed it up, making the surface milky white...so very reluctant to do that.....

Ps saw someone use spraypint with hammered effect that looked nice, I also considered using texture paint, as old Sterlings have this rough textured surface.....

Btw one of my good friends has a demilled Sterling he is willing to part with when I feel like having the money for it........uhh
I am excited:-)

Yup!..and then I intend to hand paint gloss varnish on the the pistolgrip and T tracks, as to sort of make them look like plastic...

Huh, i thought the t-tracks where the same color as the main body?

 

Best thing about DVH is that i can just remove my pistolgrip handle as it slides on like a real weapon :D

Hmm from the pics I´ve seen they look more plastic like and different than the rest of the weapon..

Nice feature ;) , DVH seems like one of the most sexy kits out there...the reasoon I did not buy one, is that I had already bought the Doopydoos kit.
