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

Recommended Posts

More updates to report this holiday season - central capacitors are created and test fitted through backplate and sitting next to outer cylinders.

This is really detailed work; loving every moment. Check it out. Its kinda cool to see the rear part of the cylinders without end caps which showcases the rear vent slits' side 'C' shape.

I also have 'the wings' created and test fitted. No wing stubs just yet. Thanks for dropping by

Hi again ... going deeper now with the insulation sleeve of the resistor wires.

Tino, how do you get out the interior of the red sleeved wire that came with your completion set, like you had as seen in the below picture from your 2016 build?

Try to grip the interior with nose pliers and pull it out. To make this easier, you can fuzz up (I hope the online translator worked correct here) the red insulation at the opposite end and grab this with another pliers.

It's all good Tino - copy that. I have success following your instructions, thanks!e5e53149d53c41b81057b88e2484a24a.jpg

Hi again,

Tonight I try to replicate the color of my ceramic tubes as revealed in Andy's history and analysis pdf. He had created a replica which I am using as reference.

Having cut my 1/4" OD tube to length, 37mm, I filled it with green stuff and recessed it a bit then applied grey primer.

I then proceeded to mix three colors to get the orangey, oxidated color as revealed on the pdf, check it out!

It's coming across quite bright, but better for it so the color will pop against the flat black of the final color of the cylinders.

Good work so far! :duim:

 

My tip for the inner cylinders: I mixed some fine sand into the paint to imitate the ceramic look.

Cool. I love the ceramic tube colors. Nice added detail there. Makes me want to try and make power cylinders.

I never thought of adding sand to paint to create the look and feel of texture. Awesome approach!

I've already applied the paint; will be adding a very light spray of brass overtop to break up the monotony of the orangey color, thanks though, appreciate the tip

Oh for sure, the cylinders I found has quite a bit of detail to plan and execute...a whole lot of fun! New year? New project = power cylinders Brian?

Well to be honest, it’s a detail you can hardly see once the cylinders are complete. :rolleyes:

But great to know it’s there, though. :D

Oh I know ... I know where your coming from, sense of pride sets in when you've truly made your blaster your own

I have said to Tino last year I was itching to start another blaster but failed to get anything started. Still need to work on my sandtrooper armor and pack too.

:duim:But hey, power cylinders would be a good starting point and your ceramic tubes have my attention.

Hello again,

I grey prime major components leaving out the central capacitors. I then followed up with flat black. As for the ceramic tube, I followed up with semigloss to seal in the orangey color with brass highlights. This also adds shine and reflectivity to it. To ensure maximum adhesion for gluing, I masked away those parts of the cylinders that will have end caps glued overtop. I also thickened the 'wings' with platicard. Bottom plate will remain a bit thick so to accommodate my chosen and scratch-built resisters. 10BA screws still need to be installed and putting together of the resistor wirings and sleeves. Capacitors I will try to bundle and glue in place some how then black wash them...to be continued

Hi again, this update is more of a revision of sorts. On looking more closely at reference pictures, my central capacitors didn't look similar to the real deal. After filing away the edges more and adding smaller round end pieces to it via green stuff, IMO is now much closer to reality, cheers!!

A good eye for details. At the power cylinders everything is sooo small, that being off just a millimeter can look wrong. You really cared for this.  :duim:

Thanks Tino - I also swapped the wiring to now be 1/16" wires. From rear, wires from the capacitors will be strong enough to hold registers in place. Plan to do some soldering as I've seen from build threads here on FISD.

Capacitors looking good. I found them to be the most fun for this part. I had never worked on anything that small model wise so it was a challenge to get it all looking as it should. You are on your way! Coming together and your care for all the details is showing!

Thanks Brian for the well wishes; I can always count on you for that

Here I am to show progress thus far ... I figured out a way to upgrade my 'wings' - I originally made them out of thin aluminum and thickened them with plasticard but it didn't hold when I attempted to make the three 1/16" holes using a drill bit.

I now have one made of plasticard entirely and then thickened the 'wings'

I also did away with my initial attempt at rear resisters. I now have them at the correct OD and length. I went out and bought a black plastic tube. The inner wire is 1/16".

I will use some armorture wire to get the insulated wire additions in due time as well.

Just moving along like a snail; slowly but surely

Hey Jesse...been off the boards for a while but damn! This is turning into one hell of a detailed build my friend!! Keep up the amazing work!

Hey Great work with the capacitors. Shape and size are perfect. :duim:

The only thing that you should think about is the diameter of the wires of your caps and resistors. They are much to big. It will be hard to make the front connection. A smaller wire makes the job much easier. 

0.7mm (1/36“) is the diameter of the Original ones. Here some pictures to show the difference.
