Altair's Resin Doopydoos E11 Build

Recommended Posts

Very good progress! Just make sure to keep the appearance of the folding stock and the main body identically. Meaning you should add that black layer to the folding stock, too (if not already done).

That's for the feedback guys.

 

@T-Jay: I've done the same to the folding stock :)

Folding stock is now attached, I have filled in the screw heads with green stuff, still need to paint these.
Ejection port and around the trigger got a coat of Metallic Silver, I think I might redo this with Steel paint or give it a wash with black to dull it down.
Also in the pic, a glossy handle :)

Close up of the t-tracks, these were left Flat black

Did some dry-brush weathering with brass paint on the scope and also very carefully with a tiny brush filled in the text with white paint

I went for the "less is more" approach when weathering up the E11, mainly working along edges and any areas where one might scrape a blaster in battle :)

For this I used "Steel" coloured paint

Still a few more things to do...
- Add reticule to scope
- Add display to counter
- Add bayonet lug (when it arrives)
- Add bolt piece near cocking handle

Awesome Job, also like your weathering, too. Which kind of brands did you use for the colors?

Yes, the collection of spray cans and paint colors at the end becomes more expensive than the actual resin kit :) But the result paid off.

 

Looking so cool! Saw just one little flaw: your counter numbers are upside down. Any chance to turn this around without damaging the window?

 

If not, don't worry. Won't be noticed by many people...

Ahhh thanks Tino! I should be able to swap this out pretty easily :)

Hi John. Excellent thread. I've bookmarked this for my own build. Tino is sending his v1.9 kit next week, so I can get started. The E-11 is the only thing I have left to do before applying for EIB and Centurion. 

 

QQ: what bit(s), for your Dremel, did you use to bore out the sections like the folding stock and the bolt?

Hi Chris, I used the routing piece on the dremel.

Your blaster is so nice!!!

 

How did you do the reticule? Is that something you bought?

Hi David,

 

The reticle was supplied by a member of the Redback Garrison. It is a transparent decal which overlays a disc cut out of a CD.

 

If you are interested, PM me and I'll se if he has any available.

 

Cheers John

Finally got around to putting the finishing touches on this blaster!

To continue the inner bolt I cut up some PVC pipe and glued several layers together then sanded to the correct shape

Then I cut my shape from the same ABS I used for the inner bolt on the barrel

Primed, painted, weathered and sealed in clear coat

Glued into place

Never received the bayonet lug from Doopys... they said they would send me one but it still hasn't turned up... Anyway Truimphmark came to the rescue with a lug gast off a real sterling :)

Oh and I also fixed my counter display so the numbers are the right way up!

Well I think I can now put this puppy to bed... time to start on the next project!

This build has been added to my reference library.

 

It's another example of some fantastic work which has resulted in something that you can be very proud of.
