Wow Jesse!!! THIS is outstanding! Never seen such a crazy end cap mod. Thought I had gone the extra mile but YOU really rocked that part. :jc_doublethumbup:

Aaah - it’s a tiny toilet!!! Thanks Jesse! Lol Seriously though, very in depth. Funny thing is, I spent ages measuring the top of my end cap and marking centre lines, then did the same as you - looked inside and saw the centre hole - drilled through and thankfully it met up with my measurements. Good work, Jesse. :-)

Totally right? haha Yeah, we're two of the same mind when it came to finding that center point and thanks for the pat on the back :)

The amount of mods you're applying is insane and the results are absolutely fantastic. In all honesty, I respect builds like yours. Mine is simply like a model kit that I assembled and painted. But your build requires so much more craftsmanship. Awesome work brother.

Great to hear from you Tennant. Yeah, took it to extremes in hindsight  - I  reveled ALLOT on my end cap, couldn't believe I had nearly 30 plus collage photos on that mod lol Thanks also for the kind words:duim: I have to say, your finished blaster is painted beautifully and will see to replicate your fine work when the time comes :)

Looking forward to seeing the next step on your build Jesse. Don’t rush of course. The end cap mod is fantastic and looks genuine. Using that hole to center things is s great find. Wish I had thought of that. I spent a long time trying to center the d ring holder.

Hey Brian, thanks for dropping by. Magazine housing is next up; stay tuned :P I know! right? I was just rifling through my end cap pictures when I noticed the center mark and thought hey! I was fortunate enough to find it early.

Hi SW enthusiasts!

 

Excited to share yet another installment. Over the past two weeks, I've tackled and continue to do so, the magazine housing.

 

Original Doopydoos Magazine Housing

 

24795902898_e0fbe1da24_z.jpg

 

For this piece, I wanted to get it looking and functioning much like an original SMG piece. With some green stuff, customizing a solid aluminum rod and some aluminum sheets, I've tried to push this mod without busting this resin piece =) I begin first by looking to replace the ejector with a custom aluminum build, then I proceed to creating the component pieces that relate to the magazine release button. Grub screw used for the ejector comes from Tino's completion set. Inspiration for creating a working release button comes from Tino as well; he's been a huge influence on getting me to my level of build so far. Although I haven't completed the release button components, I'll share my progress so far. Here I measure the ejector diameter for correct purchase of my solid aluminum rod.

 

37950724394_879a689e34_z.jpg

 

I then proceed to using a diamond cutting blade on my dremel, then sanding drum, and finally manually sanding via square file.

 

37780844735_4e52310342_z.jpg

 

37781078105_da82c36a21_z.jpg

 

To get it close as possible to the real SMG part, I filled in the underside, under the ejector with green stuff.

 

24795988418_3a5fb6d505_z.jpg

 

With some light sanding, I am able to achieve some of the contours of the underside.

 

38668601581_c8abd1c516_z.jpg

 

37951033764_5059ed0e86_z.jpg

 

In now having set the stage, I proceeded to hollow out the resin ejector.

 

38636698222_46c17d4006_z.jpg

 

38612481166_ca71955daf_z.jpg

 

The solid aluminum rod is approximately 8mm in diameter.

 

37781022665_2782d169fc_z.jpg

 

In using the correct drill bit, the rod fits nicely into the magazine housing.

 

38668767311_0ebae1f428_z.jpg

 

I discovered, use of WD-40 is helpful to catch the metal shards and also good for lubricating the hacksaw blade for cutting. Adds smell to the task and drippy but with cardboard placed underneath, no biggie.

 

38668788111_c640a6e491_z.jpg

 

Here is the test fit for the custom ejector rod, I like it!

 

38636775892_c59755a49f_z.jpg

 

This hear comes the tricky part, trying to capture the ejector bottom that I think, Is used to individualize the rounds for firing. Hacksaw used to get primary shape.

 

37781127925_d8a4cbef0e_z.jpg

 

Attached my round file to my drill to shape out the curvature outlined with pencil.

 

38669419321_c92853fe66_z.jpg

 

Crafting bottom portion of housing ejector - applied blue tape as guides after rough mark up using pencil. Cobalt hacksaw blade used

 

38613116436_57e5d35eaf_z.jpg

 

Test fit of partially completed lower portion of ejector - quite happy with the contours.

 

24796680618_7000c6714b_z.jpg

 

Here comes the final shaping of the end of the ejector - Boeing 747 jet tail, here I come! I begin with getting the tail angle then glue the fin using J-B Weld. I'm hoping with it being made with steel fragments, the glue will adhere well to the aluminum, we'll see.

 

26893239509_6f6aa2f7db_z.jpg

 

Ejector bottom end completed to follow up with light sanding over glue seam area

 

24820811248_4ecdf83a40_z.jpg

 

Ejector with fashioned bottom

 

26917527029_79763854e2_z.jpg

 

I now proceed to drilling the other way, so that I can have a functioning magazine release button. I use a 5mm diameter solid aluminum rod for this. I begin by hollowing out a place for it using a drill bit.

 

37828120775_af65e7016c_z.jpg

 

The holes more so align with the position markings on the housing - a little off but the resin around these holes all have to be taken out anyways.

 

37828134065_3b327d9cf0_z.jpg

 

I then have to tackle the ejector - making the same diameter hole right through it...this was nerve racking but I managed to pull it off.

 

26961624239_ce4ef55629_z.jpg

 

24865001538_a72e620a2a_z.jpg

 

Here comes the really finicky part of the ejector. If the bottom part of the ejector wasn't finicky enough, the top is even more work. I proceed here to fashion the bevel and also install the grub screw for it. Grub screw had as part of Tino's completion set.

 

24874345638_7a2e829efe_z.jpg

 

38706522042_a7dc0be7d6_z.jpg

 

I begin by measuring out the grub screw.

 

26971237029_6ea52c9351_z.jpg

 

I needed to use a progression of drill bits. One size smaller is used than what's measured for the final hole drill out as I will be needing to manually screw the grub screw in so to etch thread onto the ejector.

 

23882837417_f110ab0959_z.jpg

 

Here's the task ahead of me:

 

26973200149_b5579fbf69_z.jpg

 

I begin initially though to mark the bevel location to gauge the correct location of the grub screw.

 

38758323071_073b1c2f8f_z.jpg

 

I then proceed to drilling out the grub screw hole.

 

26982447059_c64d594d10_z.jpg

 

Here's that manual process I was talking about - I used an allen wrench to drive the grub screw into the aluminum to etch threading. For anyone attempting this, wear cloth covered with rubber gloves, I blistered my fingers pretty bad...

 

38758400841_09dd6f77e8_z.jpg

 

I finally drive that grub screw right through! In the process, the fashioned bottom of my ejector piece lost a detail part. I will need to add that back on a later time.

 

38056415354_9f88e61b65_z.jpg

 

Now for work on the bevel, I inserted my ejector into my drill and held it against my square file. Remember to wear ear plugs; drill motors get really loud, especially when you hold your head up close to see the shavings up close.

 

37932454095_5f79e0f43e_z.jpg

 

Here's the progression of my work - I like how it had come along!

 

37932832985_ef39d0e8c4_z.jpg

 

38819008211_2b96dd2c66_z.jpg

 

Here are some angle shots...

 

38818740001_170c18d096_z.jpg

 

24946738718_26a32d43be_z.jpg

 

I would actually now have to drill a recess for the grub screw to sit deeper - the actual SMG piece has a hole through the entire triangle part of the housing and the grub screw has a straight-long piece attached that would go through this...fyi.

 

23954118617_1645e58cba_z.jpg

 

Now, I'm pretty happy with my ejector. The task of getting a custom catch was looming...here we go! Here is a photo taken previously, it shows the component pieces involved in creating the custom catch. The catch being that 'foot' looking thing =)

 

38021112864_b19bed5908_z.jpg

 

Here I put together the catch, via aluminum provided in T-jay's completion set - perfect length. I then add green stuff and contour it, following SMG references.

 

23990067137_0d7ef99638_z.jpg

 

37967883055_85d0fb9339_z.jpg

 

I then proceed to creating the catch rod by precision measuring the rod.

 

27045908399_683ca00064_z.jpg

 

Here, I begin to add thread bolt to one end to hold the foot, I mean catch.

 

24000015547_66490835bf_z.jpg

 

Pretty happy with the end result. I would follow through by adding some E-6000 to close some gaps between the aluminum and green stuff. I'm a fan of Terry Fox - A tribute to you dear champion!!!

 

38864744061_cf1660b8a4_z.jpg

 

Here's some test fitting...

 

25013932448_e363c2fa36_z.jpg

 

Now the task is to carve out the channel for the catch to rest inside.

Measuring depth of custom catch piece and taping off dremel bit 194 to gauge correct carving depth so to get ready for carving out resin catch

 

27109763099_d3a83c91b3_z.jpg

 

In checking SMG references, I discovered the catch is to poke into the magazine housing channel as a way of locking the magazine in place. So in my work, revealing some hollow-through parts is a good thing!!

 

38190302214_fe1fce8d5a_z.jpg

 

25026485988_3ff7f459a3_z.jpg

 

Here are some test-fit pictures of the catch - it's sitting flush! I now have to work on the button end of things, that will have to be saved for the next update.

 

38190316704_60f159c262_z.jpg

 

Thanks for reading folks and for keeping up with me on this snail of a build - cheers! Have a great day.

Whoa - let me just pick my jaw up off of the floor! Such detailed work, Jesse. I’m pretty sure you’re going to have a fully working firearm at the end of this. ;-)

What a monster update, Jesse! I am totally blown away. Simply clicking that "like" button, just isn't enough for THIS effort you went through. Man, I am out of words. Your work raises the bar for this particular resin piece one more time - and we all know, this got difficult during the last years. Never say never, it has been done again. :jc_doublethumbup:

 

And I think you want to keep me busy with updating the FISD E-11 Blaster Reference, heh? ;) To me it looks like you just posted another addition for it. You truely deserve that contributor ribbon in your signature. :salute:

Thanks for the praise, Jesse. :icon_bow: But please stop calling me master. There are so many talented members on this board - just look at your latest update. THIS is a masterpiece! Hats off to your work.

 

Regarding the update for the blaster reference, I am still waiting for Danny (Ripper_L) to add the misssing content. He seems to be very busy. Maybe I will look for a workaround to bring those things online for the builders...

Hey there Brian - I"ll keep up the work, that's for sure. There are allot of design considerations when taking into account how it all works - it's been a good learning experience and an exercise of cautious implementation, cuz once the resin is gone, it's gone. Thanks for the thumbs up!

Hello everyone!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday celebration and here's an early Happy New Year to all you good folks at the FISD! Today, I update with revisions made on the magazine housing - it's catch assembly, the magazine ejector, making way for insertion of plastic replica magazine. Finally, I finish off with my custom aluminum trigger guard. I am to the moon and back when it came to getting a working and reliable catch assembly. Previous attempts on custom threading proved frustrating and futile; my solution with a Chicago screw and it's extender REALLY put a smile ear to ear for me =) Completing my custom trigger guard was also very rewarding as well as hollowing a large portion of the magazine well =) cheers!

Mark 2 catch assembly - used Chicago screw with 1 inch extension. Butchered a 1/2 " extension to insert into catch piece

What a great start into 2018! Absolutely outstanding work! :jc_doublethumbup: Congratulations for recreating the first fully operational magazine well from resin.   :th_AnimatedBravoSmiley:  Man, that modification raises the bar one more time.

 

Oh, and I had a good laugh seeing that photo with the LEGO minifigure. It reminded me of something.;) Emmet has done a good job on the trigger guard. :D

Hey thanks Tino! Cheers! Can’t wait to insert my replica magazine when I get it

 

Haha, that’s right! Emmet can hold his own, like some famous TKs out there!
