kwaker's blaster

Recommended Posts

I have ordered a full resin kit from Doopydoos, God knows when I will see it. This will be my first build on my journey to TK status, and something to keep me busy till I save up for my armour from TM. I have and will keep referring to all the excellent builds on here and intend to blatantly copy some of the great ideas found in them.

 

I have also got a couple of ideas and tricks of my own up my sleeve that I will try out and include in this thread warts and all.

 

One of my ideas that I haven't seen yet is a fully working DD folding stock, but for this I am going to need several DD stocks. So does anyone have any unused DD folding stocks laying around that they would like to see the back of? Please PM me with details.

 

As progress continues I look forward to all feedback, good AND bad, as this will be a learning curve for me.

 

Thanks

Glad you can get started on a blaster. :)

There are plenty of resources here for you to follow. I'm also unsure If anyone used the DD folding stock to make one functional, I am sure someone here can answer that question. 

Good luck!

I made my own working stock, not too difficult, this may give you some ideas http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/20729-e-11-blaster-for-centurion-standards/

Look what I came home from work to Thursday, many thanks to Aaron and Derrek some very nice work. So when Doopydoos finally get their act together I will be very busy.

So the plan will be a Doopydoos with the completion set and a pipe build with Sterling parts, that is if I am able to get a parts kit sent into the UK. I also have a night vision unit that I might like to do something with if I can figure it out

Well its BBD, on first inspection it doesn't look too bad just a few bits of cleanup to do and lots of MODS. But need to wait for a few more brown boxes.

Came home today to another delivery, Tino's completion set. Fantastic service arrived in only a few days. Anymore deliveries and I will never fit in a Tk suit with all the sweeties included :smiley-sw013:

I need to resurrect this thread as I got cleared with a Shepperton blaster I get really cheap but last week it had a fatal accident, must get my man cave cleaned up. So as I have my induction troop on the 23rd I have been working hard to get my Doopydoos blaster sorted. Will get some progress pics up later when I get time.

I replaced a ton of parts on my last DD kit with aluminum pieces (including the folding stock, magazine well, front and rear ends, etc,) from a seller on eBay.  Everything fit like a glove!

Yes I have seen his stuff but by the time you add shipping and import duties to the U.K. it works out far too expensive. I intend to buy the full kit sometime in the future

Well the blaster is nearing completion so between coats of paints I will update my process. Work began with the stock

Through and through detail sorted

Stock hollowed out, as I said before I wanted a functional stock but have opted for semi functional

Made my latching system from the tube from T-Jay, one of those touch screen pens, spring and half a screwfix pencil. I also scratch made a pivot cube. Just needs put together and the addition of a self tapping screw to act as latch

Next up the barrel.

Fake front bolts removed, some of the resin chipped so it’s green stuff to the rescue.

Main barrel holes drilled out

Holes at the end of the t-tracks opened out with the Dremel, the Dremel is really your best friend for building this kit

Fake bolt at the bottom of the grip removed, also removed the fake lock screw detail but do not have photo of this

All the items that needed sanded to flush fit the barrel got shaped by me wrapping sandpaper around the rear of the blaster body and rubbing the item along inline

And the results

Used the c section from T-Jays kit to make the rear clip. Was looking for a suitable spring material to make the clip look functional, I knew I had seen a suitable source but for the life of me I could not remember where. Then I remembered, it is the plastic storage/ dispenser for Stanley blades. Took it apart and removed the spring and cut it to size. Here is what I mean

I made my doopy with a functional stock. Maybe look at my wip here on the fisd, which may help
