Lego E-11

Recommended Posts

After seeing a trooper make a super basic rubbish looking blaster at an interstate Brick Expo, I got inspired to make my own for our upcoming Expo. Of course, I had to make it as accurate as possible (with the pieces I had or knew of at least)

 
A few rough sketches and part builds, I ordered a random bunch of black lego

And started putting bits together. Started with a strong technic section in the middle as a base

Lots of black angle bits make a barrel

More make a handle

And more black bits make a scope

Which gives me this as a base to start the details

After getting the basic shape and design done, I then had to rip it all apart to work our where and how to add the details.
 
Front muzzle

Muzzle and front sight

Rear 'D' Ring

And adding those little hinge things to support the T-tracks into the main barrell

Bayonet lug

T-Tracks. Still not sure whether I go dots on top, or swap all of them over to flats. Going to need to order more flat pieces if I go that way

And Scope rails (sorry, crappy pic. I'll get a better one later)

Any tips or suggestions from any pro-lego builder is always appreciated smile.png

That's awesome! Make sure you put some orange lego on the muzzle, so folks don't think it's a real firearm :D

Very creative.  I used to make blasters out of Lego when I was a kid, but they were always multi-colored.  Very cool work!

Good idea. Can never be too sure.

Don't worry, my half built prototype was multicoloured too until I ordered all the extra black pieces from lego.com

Trigger. Decided to go NO moving parts for simplicity and strength

Hengstler Counter

Magazine and Power Cylinders (not super happy with the hinge set up between housing and magazine at the moment. Will look at changing that)

Better view of the T-Tracks. Still to decide on flat vs dots

LOL, I'll let you know when I meet someone like that. It is nice to have a decent 1:1 E-11 beside me to match scale and placement as much as possible though :)

Personally I like the flat T-Track, helps to differentiate them from the rest of the barrel.

Veeeeeery cool. Can't wait to show your results to my son! He's a six years old compulsive lego builder and this idea is so inspiring.<br>

I also prefer the flat t tracks. Give more of a clean and shiny look.

Yeah, I think I'll order some flat pieces. Looks better to me too.

Any chance you could give us a parts list and detailed build instructions when your finished?

TBH, probably not. A lot of the build has just been using whatever bits I had around the house. If I were to order every bit new, I would probably do it totally different. Little things like using a 12dot piece instead of a 6dot, 4dot and 2dot, cause that's all I had. I have taken and will take some more photos though so anyone can see the basics of how it went together.

This is simply incredible.

 

The time and love to detail that is going into this is remarkable and inspiring.

 

I agree in Shea in hopes we could obtain a list of parts you used for us to maybe give it a go one day. :) keep it up. I can't wait to see it finished.

Rear sight, end cap release and D-Ring

And Folding stock

The stock could certainly be improved, but good enough for now.

 

Completed pics next...

I will be ordering some flat pieces for the T-Tracks, but apart from that, I'm calling it done.

 
Now to work out what bits I need to glue (Shhhh), so it doesn't fall apart in my hands smile.png
