Doopy E-11 Build- ardyjO

Recommended Posts

Okie dokie well Spring Break came and went and I was on a hell of a roll. Would have been done guranteed! But... my TRamp mini scope display took a crap. had it all installed glued in the scope and then tested it and nothing. I about cried , worked fine before install. So I mailed it back to dude and maybe he can fix it? If not I will be buying another... blamming it on my 3.7 lipo. It was puffy and putting out over 4 volts now that I diagnosed it... but who knows.

I will be trying a lithium ion next.. i sincerely hop it still fits in my magazine otherwise im screwed!

So up until then I etching primered, 1 silver coat, 2 flat black coats and then weathered with light sanding.

Wasnt getting that chipped look I wanted with the sanding just a bunch o lines, you can still see them. Then did a couple coats of Hammered black. Tried sand weathering again to no avail. Hit it with a light coat of hammered and then used silver run n buff to achieve that silver undertone. Can get carried away with the rub n buff, amazing stuff!

For the scope I did a coat of gold and then flat black and hammered. Sanding didnt work so I ordered antique gold rub n buff. Just finished hitting it with that and i'm happy!! Flat black on the grip and half of the counter box.

So my goal for the gun was to match the weathering on the real folding stock... I think I hit it pretty good and so happy I dont hate it lol the hammer finish dries heck fast and hecka hard. Still has a lil bit more of a shine than I wanted but we will see... Im sure there was a better technique for weathering than the sanding which I will now look into after the fact lol

Now to wait for the battery and new Mini scope and figure out the holder and charger for it... soo close!

Trying to think of a name for my sweetie... f4def18cb8831d8857bd4ae2129262bc.jpg22350e7921ee47b34788ec35600f6d53.jpgcf9208f5564a22fa0b5e284e05f71da5.jpg9304207875fc7ccd87ec78a66caf4506.jpgb6471c18f5ea914032a6c18e9bf0a095.jpg485e2209c78f78d27de23c609df2de8d.jpg

Yup! I did a blunder on my BlastFX being a novice at electronics and too giddy when it arrived. My heart also fell to the floor. I blew broken my speakers and did what you did; sent it back and asked for a replacement / rewiring. Paid Paul also for installing my 3.7V Li-Po battery too. Sorry to hear you had some battery issues....everything good now? It's been a few weeks...

Aw man! I do not like working with electronics !

Yea I sent it back and he had to just replace it .. ka-ching! My husband says I crossed the power wires probably, but I am pretty sure it was the stupid lipo battery. It was puffy... Troopramp said hes blown his share as well haha

So now I got the new scope to re-install. Scared the other part will do the same after I glue it up, especially the trigger mech...

My china battery finally arrived but is mega huge ! At least I can use it in my mouse droid or tie pilot chestbox.

Smaller one coming at end of week so hopefully over the weekend I can get this puppy booted up!

Battery too big (sizewise) for my mag. clip, but will fit just fine in my tie pilot chestbox so not wasted.. got a 3400 mah on the way.. just hope the battery holder works on these weird flat end bats.

The Gonk says he has no power issues...71ac1284f5155c20104e09e846ae6beb.jpg

Ending up modding the mag. box so the lil clip lines up with the housing and so my fat lil battery fits like a glove very lucky to not crack the plastic very badly! Also have a permanent glue/skin thumbprint on it now. 8838d7b332a346968f35fea6c480ee87.jpg794a8b65391a0513fbdc2f75d42c8edd.jpg6b6a3d7c120721ed1c37187ae3be12c3.jpg8f6e8f8f537f2dc4bfdbc22f603bafc5.jpg8e3954a2349829c4798cbb8f119e8e68.jpg4d99099b5cb8606806a20fd8afdb46c8.jpg6a156f1ce27ee92eabac6e822669251d.jpg

Installed the new mini scope display, it actually had another board installed on it, but still got it all to fit.

Ran all the wires thru to the magazine and re-wired and soldered them... annnnnd everything works!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never been so nervous in my life...

Have the switch on the side of the mag. housing.08ad948cfc3151514d2df957b54be36b.jpg8b6e0f0f8f0d3afbc3f11c37ff050d3e.jpg4f486c88cce318b50d0a7b513d395adb.jpg

Yikes! My jaw dropped when I saw your plastic magazine with a hole in it! Good planning and careful execution. I've never seen anyone modify swpropman's Tunisian style magazine before. It's looking good!!!

Great Ardyjo! How rewarding to have the electronics working after installation - you'll have the remaining parts of the blaster done in no time

Okay! Ol Besty has her electronics , in place, and working!!! Sooooo relieved!

 

New miniscope is operating perfectly. The switch I accidentally puttied closed is cleared out and working, and the trigger mech. was fixed and reinforced.

 

ADVICE: for the blastfx trigger, if you are installing in any way the 2 wires' shrink wrap bends, just remove the wrap and solder it/glue it.

 

The handle on mine was a tight fit to the bottom of my barrel. I cut out a tunnel for the wires to run along but they still bent too much and as a result it disabled the trigger after I glued everything in place causing th rrumble and trigger not to work... I about died after testing it lol like for real...

 

Luckily, my hubby is familiar with the shrinky tube and its lack of bendability. Shouldnt break again.

 

I soldered each wire after running it through the gun to the clip housing and taped them. The wires ended up being twice as bulky as anticipated and wouldnt all fit in the housing and had to flow out into the barrel. Probably could have cut them a little bit more and not tape? , but it was too nerve wracking! Uggf

 

Really crappy since I worked on getting the spring action and bolt to work now stupid wires are in the way... FML... Oh well compromises

 

Another word of advice running the wires, label them and check that it works periodically after installing pieces. Double check the wires. Unbelieveably helpful they are all different colors. Stripping them was a pain for me , had to replace a couple sections.

 

Also dropped the gun with excitment after the trigger worked again, and busted the stupid end sight cover thing. I have a feeling it will break in the future and the trigger guard thing. So I have to puddy that up.

 

White crayola made the sight pop!!

 

So close to finishing! f6654c8bc31123550d36a268fb9fd5e0.jpg2a7aef964b349f21a9255ac1bdc122e2.jpg196517ecc2f72b69db780d054abc73b6.jpg

Okie dokie! Ol betsy just need the power cylinder cords and the flippin lil clip part, which I still dont know where it goes haha

The magazine was modded to be wider so the battery could fit. Still tight. After much fiddling, 4 magnets were installed on the mag. and housing to keep it secure. A new end piece was cut outta styrene and glued on the end.

Mess of wires in the housing and barrel. Taped the BlastFX components, the memory card keeps getting undocked since its so jammed.

Barely got the bolt piece shoved down the barrel. It was cut outta pvc and an aluminium strip glued to it. The spring fits perfect and even allows for spring action on the end cap when the understock folds and secures. Yay. Fixed the end sight cover.. Stil say it will crack off again haha its too fragile

Not too bad for my 1st blaster. I know there are some bolts where there shouldnt be and gaps etc. but I am super happy with it! Was pushin a year on this project.

Now I just need a stand I will do another video on our youtube channel after the last pieces are on.

Nice progress.

 

Just out of interest, are you planning to troop with this or is it a fun project? I only ask because if you’re thinking of trooping it, you may wish to check with your Garrison’s GML to see if they are likely to clear it with the extended mag. As you’re probably aware, screen used blasters had the mag cut down a significant amount. At a glance, it looks like your’s is roughly twice the length of a screen used mag.

Hey thanks for the info! It is probably just going to sit at home though still have the smaller mag if it comes to that.
