Ayen_s DoopyDoo E-11 resin kit build

Recommended Posts

I am starting my build to have my own E-11. No stormtrooper is complete without their E-11 blaster. Due to restriction in importing weapon look alike item into my country, i went with a Doopydoos E-11 resin full kit. Less risk for it to be confiscated by customs etc. Doing a build thread so I can compile my research and findings while waiting for the kit to arrive.

 

Reference build thread:

1. Themaninthesuitcase

2. T-Jay

3. DM101

3. Painting the Doopydoos E-11

 

Upgrade parts:

Below are my wish list for better looking E-11

1. T-Jay Completion Sets for E-11

2. Gazmosis Replacement Magazines

3. Suitcase Props 3D Printed E-11 parts

4. Screen-accurate E11 Power Cylinders

5. E-11 Blaster D-Ring Trooperbay

 

Tools:

1. Super glue

2. Tamiya putty

3. Grey Surfacer paint

4. Silver gloss paint

5. Black gloss paint (body)

6. Black satin paint (grip)

7. Brass satin paint (scope)

8. Gunmetal satin paint (t-tracks)

9. Paint brush

10. Sand paper

11. File

12. Drill

13. Drill bit (3/8",7/16")

 

Parts:

1. DoopyDoos Resin kit (order 1/9/2016) (reorder and arrive on 3/8/2017) c/w

1.1 Main barrel

1.2 Folding stock-rear

1.3 Hengstler counter

1.4 Scope

1.5 Grip handle

1.6 Sling swivel keeper

1.7 Front sight

1.8 Trigger

1.9 Magazine

1.10 Magazine receiver

1.11 Power cell-fuse

1.12 Rear stock catch

1.13 Bayonet lug

1.14 Muzzle flash guard

1.15 Ejector guard

1.16 Charging handle

1.17 Rear flip-up sight

1.18 Magazine release button

1.20 Selector switch

1.21 End cap

1.22 Trigger guard

2. Aluminium flat bar (purchased 7/9/2016)

3. Socket Head Cap Screw M6 (grip)

4. Socket Head Cap Screw 1/4-20 (muzzle)

 

Work in progress. Will continue update during my research.

Hi Ahmad, this start looks very promising :duim:  You made your homework.

 

If you decide to take a Completion Set, you can remove the following items from your list, because they are in the set already:

- D-Ring

- super glue

- putty (green stuff)

- Aluminum flat bar

- and the hex-screws for the muzzle and grip

Just send a PM if you are interested...

 

Checking your tools-list, I noticed you are planning to paint the grip in satin black and the gun body in gloss black. May I suggest to read chapter #28 (painting) and possibly swap this?  :) 

The T-tracks on the original guns in the movie were made of black plastic. Not sure how these will look like in gunmetal grey but that color would definitely be a good choice for the inner bolt and the ejection port area.

 

Please don't get me wrong, I don't want to tell you how to build your blaster. Just wanted to mention a few things.

Whatever you do, if you work at the same level as your first posting above, this will become a very good E-11 :D

Thank you Tino for the suggestion. Your kit is one of the recommended upgrade in FISD.

 

Regarding the painting, appriciate the link. Will read it all up.

Putting this blaster build on hold. The E-11 blaster kit I ordered from Doopy Doos never arrived. Refund was requested and granted by Pay Pal. Case close.

Bummer dude..

Yeah, I was hoping to submit Centurion application with my own blaster. Well, have to move on.

I have the same problem here in Australia, luckily for my first build my doopy kit got through customs. But for my second build I have been ordering the parts separately from a few diffident sources and all bits have got through so far.. I think all I still need is the pipe..

 

Good luck Syahrin!

Last month, on early July, I decided to give Doopy Doos another chance. Reorder with them together with another Malaysia Garrison member. After a month waiting, I received the E-11 blaster kit.

a ) completed E-11 with scope rail, muzzle and grip screw mod : 1168 g (2.57 lbs)

b ) unfinished E-11 raw condition: 974 g (2.14 lbs)

Measuring holes to rear sight for scope rail measurement.

I stick masking tape on my aluminum plate. Draw the measurement directly on it with pencil.

Light and sound mod:

 

Light and sound mod is non cannon. But I think it is fun and interactive to have it in a blaster. I was inspired from these topics:

1. First dedicated Arduino board for Blasters - welcome the Stardust "B"

2. arduino: a cheap board for E11 blaster effects

 

Components:

1. DFPlayer 

2. Micro SD Card (16GB)

3. 0.5W 8Ohm Speaker 

4. Push button switch

5. 5V power bank

6. Wiring

 

I am going for a simple DFPlayer MP3 board to play the sound. So far I able to play 2 file of sound.

My testing setup:

Sample play:

Wow, my sentiment as well - having a blaster that has lights and sound, really takes it to the next level. After a ton of research on Arduino and related components, I concluded my skills with electronics were too limited so I opted for the 'ready to install' version. Went with a BlastFX from Paul - it will arrive shorty by mail soon, can't wait

Good on you Syahrin for following through having received your inspiration. Intrigued about Stardust "B" and already very familiar with link # 2.
