ANH E-11 Über model build for "Steve"

Recommended Posts

Hi All!!!!

If you are not familiar with my threads, "Steve" is a "ANH Stunt TK" Kit from Anovos that I am building and my 16-year old decided that "it" needed a name and "Steve" kinda stuck. 

This post is for the E-11 Blaster I am building for "Steve". It is an E-11 Uber ANH Model from rayabear <http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/user/26647-rayabear/>. 

 

It just arrived a couple of days ago and it is a 3D Printer Model setup and quite amazing. the quality of the parts and the attention to details is  superb.

rayabear <http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/user/26647-rayabear/> had numerous videos on Youtube for this device and its predecessor which are very informative and offer quite a bit of insight on the assembly.

 

So off to the build. Here we go!!!! In the following pics I have assembled the three barrel elements, and sanded them down, I have installed the magazine holder and magazine, and I have installed the from sight assembly items.....

Today we have done more work (painstaking work may I add with LOTS of sanding) and things look much more advanced now (did I mention there is a LOT of sanding????)

So what this shows is really the end result of LOTS of sanding to complete. The T-Rails are sanded (sigh...) and ready for plasti-dip when it comes before end of the week...

 

We also completed the bolt assembly, and the breach assembly as well....

it is now sitting and curing and I think we are going to apply the first coats(s) of paint to the bolt as well as the barrel....

 

Watch this space!!!! May the Force be with You!!

Nice work so far Kevin I look forward to following your progress. One quick suggestion would be to try to smooth the edges of the holes in the barrel if possible.

Thx Chris!! Yeah, indeed. I have used sandpaper and files so far, but they still look so rough.  I may have to go get some putty and give it a go.

Are you sanding by hand or are you using some sort of power sander?

So far by hand. The barrel was pretty easy. The smaller pieces even a hobby sander might be tough. I may try anyway...
