Some nice picture's for the thread :)

Thank you very much, Dennis. Are these computer generated images? Or digitally altered in some way(s)? Found a few details that look strange to me (but I don't know each and every Sterling version out there).

Thank you very much, Dennis. Are these computer generated images? Or digitally altered in some way(s)? Found a few details that look strange to me (but I don't know each and every Sterling version out there).

They definitely appear to be computer generated, It's pretty realistic however there are some inaccuracies; There is no bayonet lug, or flattened area on the receiver for the bayonet. The magazine and magazine well just look too wide, that looks more like an M4/AR style magazine not a Sterling. The trigger group and grip assembly appear to be too thin and the trigger group retaining pin has a flat surface head on but the real thing is slightly domed/rounded. The rear sight aperture is wrong I've never seen anything like that before, also the rear sight pin appears to be inaccurate and doesn't even line up with the pivot point on the rear sight itself so that little part is unrealistic. The rear end cap is too long and the D ring is too thin/skinny. The clearing strip on the bolt prodrudes inwards instead of outwards. There is also an engraving of some kind on left side of the receiver near the rear of the gun that I've never seen before but coincidently I have seen an image where someone photoshopped an engraving of a logo on this area of a real Sterling. But it was photoshopped, there was no real engraving on the actual gun.

Found this little gem on YouTube the other day; <br>

<br>

Although I noticed guns in this video seem to have front sight guards similar to the Sterling MK-V (Canadian C1 Type Sub Machine) used in ROTJ not the Sterling MK4 L2A3 front sight guards seen in ANH.

There's no sound in this video however some of the guns in this one do have the correct Sterling MK4 L2A3 front sight guards seen in ANH. In addition to the original endurance/performance testing we actually get to see some of the original production process taking place here too which is really rare, as well as assembly and quality assurance.<br>

#17 - Inner Bolt With Clearing Strip, Serial Number, Plunger And Extractor [/size]

 

Mod A: Check reference pictures to see if the position of the clearing strip in your kit needs to be corrected. If so, you can sand down the wrong strip and [/size]

replace it with a 1mm strip of plastic. Use a heat gun to twist it and reduce (or fill) any gaps between the strip and the inner bolt.[/size]

 

058_zpswky9xg0t.jpg[/size]

 

Mod B: To create or change serial numbers on the inner bolt, the same technique can be used as mentioned in Chapter #15 Mod B regarding the magazine [/size]

well. The numbers have a height of 2mm and a total amount of 15 characters (a combination of 13 digits & 2 letters). The setup is as follows: [/size]

X00 0 000 000 X 0000 (the X stands for a letters and the 0 represents the digits). Hollow some space and fill it with modeling clay. Make new imprints while [/size]

the clay is soft. Alternatively you can engrave them.[/size]

 

059_zpsunf2pcaq.jpg[/size]

 

Mod C: To simulate the extractor and plunger, carve these into the inner bolt or find and make some parts to insert there. Attention: Only a few early Sterlings [/size][/size]

had the "slotted" extractor as shown here. The majority had the solid extractor (without that slot). See also chapter #30, Blueprints: Bolt Detail and Bolt Parts.[/size][/size]

 

060_zps0vagk8cl.jpg[/size][/size]

 

Mod D: The bolt can also be recreated using scratch parts and a thin aluminum sheet.[/size][/size][/size]

is this scratch bolt linked to more information or a builders log to see more. Thanks

Hi everyone!

Am a newbie to FISD... Was looking for references as I'm gonna start on a Doopydoo's E-11 kit...
I'm pretty sure this is the right place. Amazing work to all the contributors to this thread. Hats off.

I've been search everywhere and can't seem to find out, what diameter pipe do I use. I've seen other's mention 38.1(is that cm or mm) also is that the outer or inner diameter?

Hello there,

 

chapter #31 (Measurements) contains this information: Steel receiver tube: 1.5" OD X 1.37" ID X 0.065" Wall

And chapter #04 (The Receiver Tube) contains a link to printable templates

Good luck and let us know in case you need more information.

Haha, it's definitely 38.1mm and not cm! If it was 38cm the pipe would have a diameter similar to a car tire. :D

Here's how mine turned out. I up scaled the image to the same size by measuring the actual ejection port on my blaster and then the image on the screen. I think the measurements are 10mm for the extractor and around 4mm for the plunger.

Looks great, Marc!  I was looking for it in metal, but yours looks pretty darned real to me...(is it metal)? . Awesome job!

Hi Joseph,

That photo is of my blaste ejector port. I hand cut, shaped and assembled it. It is just a thin piece of aluminum with an added strip glued on top of it. The extractor pieces are bits of PVC covered with aluminum sheeting and I used brass tubing. If you go to my blaster build you cn see how it was all done. Wasn't easy but a second try would go smoother. I only I'd this cause I wasn't pleased with the doopy set up so I wanted to add more realistic details for the port. Got out of hand you could say.

All of this of course was Tino inspired.His blaster mods helped push the limits on what you can do.

Can't believe I didn't find that in my research, Brian!  Aren't you the one who hooked me up with some 3-D printed sites a while back?  I am on my fourth (and final) DD E-11 build, and I want this one to be perfect.  I am obviously using one of Tino's incredible finishing kits, but when I saw your work, I knew I had to add that as well.  Funny thing is, being a HWT, I don't even carry an E-11.

Many thanks for the info., and wish me luck!

Side note:  If you ever decide to make another one, I would be your first customer.  Wink wink, nudge nudge. :duim:

No problem. Not sure if I helped with any 3D printed sites but if I did, no sweat! 

Four doopy builds already? awesome. I am finding it hard to get my second blaster kit off the ground. Happy you like the ejector port mod. It doesn't look as pretty underneath, lots of messy resin to drill out to get the metal plate to slide into place correctly. If you try it and need a hand, shoot me a message. I might still have a partial plate made somewhere.

 

One thing about being a trooper you can never have enough weapons in your arsenal!

Hi Joseph if it is the sight housing you refer to this was something that I 3D printed and sent over to you. ;)

That would be it!  You actually sent me 2 or 3, and I used one of the others on my last build.

Just recently, most of our photo links broke and we are currently working to bring back all the content.

This might take a while and to provide an interim solution, please check chapter #32 (Downloads).

There you'll find a printable PDF with most of the information from the thread.

We will update you again, when the issue has been fixed. Sorry for any inconveniences.
