Aevith's ANH E-11 (DoopyDoos feat. T-Jay kit & Blue Snaggletooth Counterparts) WIP

Recommended Posts

 

Hello Everyone,

 

The past week the first parts for my E-11 Blaster came in! Time for me to start a thread!

 

So this week my first boxes started to arrive. I decided to start building the E-11 while waiting for my RS kit to arrive.

I plan on finishing the E-11 first to get familiar with all different types of materials and tools like the Dremel.

 

My first boxes!

After checking if all the parts were present, it was time for them to take a bath.

I decided to start with the parts that were the easiest in my opinion.

 

Drilling the resin to replace the screw.

I'll probably be putting some more work in the E-11 today. I'll keep you guys updated!

 

If there are things that can be improved or just tips in general, I would like to hear it from you!

Very tidy work so far. Lovely loft space, too. ;-)

 

Following with interest. :jc_doublethumbup:

Hi Kevin, looks like you've got everything you need to entertain us here on FISD. :D - including a very cool work space. :duim:

Ha, that wallpaper on your laptop is on my desktop, too. :lol:

Off to a great start. Following...

Ouh, that black screw in the bottom of your grip was meant to go into the front muzzle. There is one silver screw without the crosshatch pattern which is for the grip. ;)

Hello,

 

Time for a litte update!

 

this week I received parts from Dennis Blue Snaggletooth to recreate the counter.

 

I also have been working on removing and replacing some parts from the trigger group with custom made aluminum replacement parts.

This was a looooooot of work! It took me several hours to get it to fit nicely. I'm currently working on the other side of the gun to do the same.

 

And there is more news! I received my UPS tracking this week and today me RS Propmasters kit will be arriving!

However I instructed myself to finish the blaster first before starting to work on the armour.

Aah, :D it's been a while since somebody did the mod with the metal inlays in the trigger group. Very well done. :duim:

And I am really curious to see you building that counter. It remindes me of something...  ;)

BBB-day today? Keeping fingers crossed for you. Happy Easter!

Looks awesome.  I'm going to follow your thread for my Doopydoos blaster.  Where did you pick up the T-Jays kit?

Hi,

 

Time for another update! Progress has been going slow, but I have obligated myself to take this build slow.

 

Installed the second metal plate and am looking into covering the other trigger parts with tin aluminum

Still looking for the right screw to serve as selection screw.

20180331_120352

Sanded and ready for replacement.

Installed a little piece aluminum to keep the D-ring from moving and rattling.

And installed the front blobs with the right screws.

20180401_212831

 

This week it was also time for BBB-Day! Was very excited for this! Some parts came in cracked so I have contacted RS Props for replacement.

Was not very happy with the gloves either.

Very sorry to hear about the broken parts in your BBB. There must have been some real rough treatment to that box during shipping process. Keeping fingers crossed for the replacements from RS now. For the gloves you could contact @justjoseph63 and check out his hand plates...

 

Good progress on your blaster build. :duim:  Already loving your trigger group with the aluminum inlays.

Regarding the LOCK/FREE-screw in the grip: the screw in the completion set has the correct shape and size. The original screws are a bit smaller than the opening in the grip. Here is a link to the Blaster Reference. In the first posting you can find the "PDF Photo Compendium" full of reference pictures to refer to. Hope this helps. :)

Sorry about your kit.  Could have been the cold weather we just had.  If it's sat getting cold for any period of time then even a little mishandling could cause some pretty bad damage.  Good luck getting it fixed.

These things happen. I'm hoping RS will fix this for me. With what I have read, I'm pretty hopeful.

They seem to be very correct with these kinds of issues. Fingers crossed!

I have heard of a few problems with fitting issues from RS, but never broken pieces.  The good news is that RS is known for their customer service, and they have been outstanding in the past about replacing things.

Always start with the easy stuff!

Starts to look like something!

Printed and cut out.

Looks good, but not real enough!

Sanded some plexiglass.

And voila! Looks much more realistic in my opinion.

Pretty happy with the result! But then Dennis told me this window and side wall were all wrong...

Until next time!

Wow, that was some serious conversion work on the counter. Well done Kevin:duim:

 

How did you manage to modify the grey cover with the window?

I still need to modify the grey cover. I cheated by switching the cover for the photo :)

Hi everyone,

Tried to get some work done this week. Not as much as I had hoped but very happy with my counter! Found a Hengstler 400 on the internet this week. Put it together with the parts from Dennis Blue Snaggletooth this evening.

Hi all,

 

It's been a while since I have been able to find the time to work on the blaster and post my progress.

At this moment I am very busy with finding a new job and have been very busy with my portfolio and job interviews.

The past days I have been able to rip myself away from the computer and continue my blaster build!

 

Time for a big update!

 

First of all I had to move from my loft space because it was getting very hot up there.

I took me residence in the downstairs garage now and must say I'm happy with the change of scenery. :)

 

DSCN0791

 

First thing I started working on in the new space was the folding stock.

 

DSCN0792

 

 

DSCN0793

Next I put some extra work in the spaces between the t-tracks and the main body.

DSCN0801

 

Added the bayonet lug

DSCN0802

 

Inner bolt, plunger and extractor

DSCN0804

Next up: The magazine

DSCN0815

 

DSCN0817

 

DSCN0818

 

DSCN0819

 

DSCN0820

 

Waited with the telescope for a long time because I knew it was going to be hard.

DSCN0812

 

DSCN0814

 

Big gap because I got really stressed and forgot to take pictures. :)

 

DSCN0829

 

DSCN0830

 

Need to clean the joint with the front lens.

DSCN0827

 

DSCN0826

 

Added some detail to the rear sight.

DSCN0811

 

Modifications to the end cap clip.

DSCN0806

 

Everything coming together for the first time!

DSCN0840

 

DSCN0841

 

DSCN0844

Still a lot of work to do, but the end is in sight!

Very happy with the result so far!

 

I'll try to post my updates sooner!

 

Until next time!

Hi Kevin, great to have you back, posting again. :)

Awesome job done on the folding stock, scope and the smaller pieces. The only thing that I would re-check is the width of the clearing stripe on your inner bolt. And the LED sticks out a bit too far in your magazine top plate. That should be easy to correct with some washers. Please don't feel pushed, it's just us here at FISD, wanting you to get the best out of your resin kit.

Hey Tino,

What should the width of the clearing stripe be? I'll see what I can do to correct it. 

I was indeed not completely happy with the led but as I'm closing to the end I'm trying to correct all the little defects.

Thanks for the tips!

Unfortunately I can not provide an exact measurement at the moment, as my digital calliper is currently unavailable. But it should be around 5.5 mm wide. Maybe someone else can chime in to help.

 

And for the LED: just add washers, so it only sticks out about 1mm or less. On an original Sterling magazine you can push this button to slide off the top cover and access the spring powered loading mechanism.
