Doopydoos Full Resin Kit WIP + Tino,Chris + more, Additional Parts

Recommended Posts

I remember I screwed up (hah, bad screw pun) this part quite massively, I ended up just glueing the screws into the holes that I made way too big. It's still looking alright, so given the effort that you're putting into this scope it's gonna look fantastic default_icon_bow.gif

At the end of the day as long as screws are secure right? But yes, I am glad things are turning out without any major disasters

Today is another few minutes of work. Installed two micro screws on the scope, two more to go. All four screws came from a glasses repair kit I found at a dollar store. I has to shorten them 1mm or so. E-6000 was used to glue in place.

 

I couldn't afford doing all four or I am bound to have a screw or two jump away from me!! I remember justjoseph saying to have a carpet to catch any falling pieces during a build, this has saved me twice today!!

 

I found given the size of these screws, peace and patience was a must for successful execution. Check it out

Just moving along here with more updates - remaining two screws for the side of the scope installed. Green stuff came to save the day having drilled holes a tad too wide. All good now but man, working with micro screws was pretty tedious.

Thanks Tino! - I am unsure what you mean about the washers actually...do you have an image perhaps? Sorry emoji28.png

Black washers? :huh:  No, I wrote about a black washing to make the screws look aged. :)

Hello folks, excited for the time ahead... glue areas masked off, time to add grey primer paint to my scope! Pictures to come shortly!

When the time of primer and glue comes, you know the finish line is closing in fast :)

That's right Freduster! Light near the end of the tunnel for the scope ;)

I've never tried to do a weathered effect before so we'll see how I do on that part :)

Hello all,

Today, I followed up on installing metal pins on either side of the scope. This will help ensure the pieces stay intact after the E-6000 glue been applied and cured. I also secured the large monocular lens housing with electrical tape to have it in installed more snug, as Tino had done. I then proceeded to sand away unevenness in the scope body from where I applied green stuff. I also in a previous session sprayed gloss black paint to the inside of the scope.

I am really amazed at all that came with monocular from Tinos completion set, had to do a detail account!

Slowly but surely and having fun mostly, cheers!302cd0e78aa807eb48f9cb8bbab10ddf.jpg54e9648a3dcba298005fb04d13aac2c9.jpgc838e22210420f20aa201122a9accb01.jpgaed4debcf2cbd083dcd653a4b831ccdc.jpg56e1505a46bbf5b0d076a69343e4ad77.jpgb1f52888386e4cf6e18155bb7414032d.jpg

Here is the scope body with both end pieces in place...primed in grey paint and ready for gold paint! I will try a rose hued gold as I remember reading that the real deal isn't that attractive of a gold color. Hope it turns out good, update shortly!!!8642efdab5a88c6e1ccb443b4a201f5d.jpg2e7864dd508fd2e716e87874e24625ab.jpg

Here are some pictures of the shade of gold I have on my scope right now - what do you guys think?

 

I am also wondering, does the scope have wrinkle paint to look like the real deal or is it just flat black?

Current colour on the scope looks very good to me. No wrinkle paint recommended for this part. A flat black finish is common for the scopes, but looking at original scopes I think a semi-gloss (or even gloss) black really works better.

Tino is right, wrinkle paint is not the right for the scope. They have a war time finish and are a rather rough cast, but the paint is simple. I think it depends on what you want. Here are two pictures of an a M40 1943 and an M38 1942 it is between flat and semigloss, but I think it might have been more glossy at some point, when they where new.T2KlU2z.jpg

Thank you HSM76 and Tino for your valuable input - I've since added brass colored paint overtop my rose gold paint job. It was too rosey for my liking. The comparison picture is quite revealing.

 

I think I will then go for semigloss black with a little flat black to take away some shininess and a Matt clearcoat to seal it all in.

 

Thanks for dropping by!b58cb695d00364b4c30c1ef4ef0837db.jpg&key=c4ade5691ccacfe56215cf89909f16935941cd88e806e989b8c2f0767a71c9e660b89a5951ca2bc7df69173920b83a22.jpg&key=d9bf2c925ea0c8e6b22bbf592c2e560cd7877323de3716316f717457d1b65ce51695fd9673ca4c92345ccabcc6580c94.jpg&key=cdb1755533d4f4ffb3fda36543ff7312b7ecd5012e9fd3baeaa585bf3bf3327403214b0dbeb3434f80c79aa7c940a194.jpg&key=4b2ee20456a44b55d6f6544dd4d5487b07f213204bab583cc03facf5c23dda5da72e73b9561687fab75b915bb42c402a.jpg&key=933666ef48111547e25c145f887c2709bafe158b04db9977d11685e123b88d8028dbf63ab9b817125eda97eb570ac257.jpg&key=487a543a25d8e631899e226a2eb6193313b3c72225c1cdfd2d36b0869199774f

 

Here, I make sure the underside has sufficient paint as blaster reference calls for scope feet bottoms and the sides of the back foot remain brass in color. Will need to tape before spraying black

Nice work on the paint so far. If you are not satisfied with the under layer of brass/gold after you paint the scope black, try looking into brush on metallic paints that you can polish after painting. They look quite impressive when done correctly.   For the black coat, as already mentioned, semi-gloss more than flat black.

Thanks for the tip Brian, investing in a few quality brushes and a bottle of mineral spirits will prepare me well for the task then as I've got the metallic paints. Well see how I do with the final look - first time for everything right? I've never done weathering before.

Had the same worries on my first build, but weathering is really fun - just remind yourself, sometimes less is more. :)

Hi all,

I've gone and put my scope into stealth mode with black semi-gloss paint! I'm beginning to understand how to weather with some black paint at parts chipping away from the brass paint underneath...will take fine sandpaper to introduce some weathered edges soon.b5ce2060f1923afa4f9b60817c04c9db.jpg4174d81f41db3f5c68a351502d5cabc3.jpg43aa9651ddfcb0bb4725da94115d1ea6.jpg5ce237e3be88b199fd4e474c7c81bf5c.jpg0eb86f7171d79da4d99e433bd511953f.jpg492597e6026fd45d91c13f68b7e2387d.jpg

Hi friends!

I am getting into a groove of sorts with painting and weathering...hope I'm not too much off the mark 'More is less' when it comes to weathering....please check out my painted scratch built magazine.

Base coat is steel looking paint with flat black overtop. Applied some toothpaste before spraying the black, to knock off any cleanliness on the look. This is advice took to heart from TenantLim, here on FISD. Applied some fine grit sandpaper to reveal steel underneath. Applied some wrinkle paint to the magazine cap; its shinier than the rest.

Still want to apply some brown eye shadow makeup to give it a rust look on some parts and still to apply a mat clear coat to seal everything in...check it out 1f1085071d2bba9a6106963f09587c4f.jpg2625e5df07cc5aeab3a82a6420805775.jpgc17b7085a1ab92fd295fd05abe43f59c.jpg336004b6402ea5e5ea7b29bf17b36c32.jpgb07662d6668eb9c4993b018892ea06b3.jpg738d3528adf0504cd32d0d5161147735.jpg2676c3f7611f8cd5a1da13a6c4b68f96.jpg30c83a7144443991e4fce5826e7d8e21.jpg

Finally! My scope is done!!!

 

Oh boy, it's something else to have it all completed and painted as well.

 

The small lens installation was finicky. I stuck it to the ends of the lens spacer with electrical tape and placed it in the small lens housing. With room to boot in the housing, I filled in the extra space with some pieces of a red rubber band and glued everything with E-6000.

 

As for the reticle lens, I used green stuff following Tinos example.

 

Using crayon to highlight the scope text was very fun to do! Patience and perseverance paid off!
