Congratulations on completing this truly exceptional E-11 blaster, Jesse. Following your journey from day one, I can confirm that I have never before seen anybody making such a blaster with more effort than you. Of course this was meant in a positive way. No challenge was too big for you, no way was too far. As for the build time, yeah, maybe you should get a fun-award for the longest build duration. :P;) Just kidding. Thanks for the great final photos to drool over and also for your contribution to the Blaster Reference during this build. I look forward to seeing this blaster accompanied with a nice suit of TK armor. Maybe that will be your task for the next 2.5 years. :D

It was an absolute pleasure collaborating with you and others over the two plus years; crazy when I think of it. :lol:Also an honor to be counted as a contributor to the FISD E-11 Reference. Very valuable as is your E-11 Completion Set offering.

 

Oh........that TK armor, truth be told, it remains a distant dream but one day, one day :duim: and when that day comes, I will most definitely begin my WIP thread.

Wow, I love this replica. I can only hope to approach but probably never reach this final result when I get around to a blaster.
Pen your build plan belloq, pursue your personal best and have fun! I am sure, when you've reached the finish line, you'll have a blaster you can be proud of =)

Congratulations on completing your blaster! It can out amazing and your effort put into it shows. You showed that time and patience and perseverance can result in a blaster that other troopers would be honored to have.   
 

Get that armor started so you can compliment that fantastic blaster!

Great work, Jesse. I’ve really enjoyed following this from the early days. Sharing thoughts and ideas in those early stages really helped with my own build. :-)

Hope this takes pride of place wherever you choose to display it. If you ever get to build your own TK armour and need any pointers, the FISD has your back.

Best wishes
Dan

Thanks Dan, absolutely superb collaborating with you over the lifetime of this build. Always encouraging to see your troop posts to see how far a TK can go for the Empire, you are an inspiration to many of us. Best wishes as well!!

Congratulations, Jesse!!!  The blaster looks fantastic!!!  I hadn't "checked in" for a while either (life, I know, it's interruptive..) and I was surprised to see a conclusion to the saga of Dracotroopers blaster.  I picked up an Elegoo Mars resin 3D printer and it's amazing.  If I had that while I was still working on my blaster it would be a whole different build.  No more fabricating parts.....just print them out of resin in perfect quality.  :-)

 

Anyway, congrats again!!!  Looking forward to your (eventual) trooper build!!

Oh my goodness Mark, you said it, haha, the saga has ended.

Thanks the congrats! Feels good to have it completed, finally. Yeah, its different now with so many options - glad you've found an option that works for you. Did you say there is a way to make your own resin parts? That is crazy! You have to elaborate.

Definitely look up an Elegoo Mars.  It's a resin 3D printer.  It's around $360 Canadian or closer to $230 US.  Can print close to 0.02mm pixel size.  Almost no layer lines, and any that are there easily sand off.  I just finished a blaster from the Mandalorian show and you can't tell it's 3D printed.  Only down side is that the resin is messy and the build volume is fairly small.  It uses a cell phone LCD panel as a shutter with a UV light underneath.  Fairly simple.  So the build volume is something like 4.5"x2.5"x6".  But man, if I had this while I was building my blaster, you could just fabricate the parts in a cad program and print them out.  Your custom clip, the bolt, the sight.....everything that wasn't exactly right on the Doopy's kit could be printed.  And then, if you design an impressive part, people sell the digital files on ETSY.  Or if you aren't good with CAD, you just find free STL files or buy them online.  It's a game changer, for sure.
