Hello from the Netherlands

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

 

I'm Patrick from the Netherlands and as you might expect I'm a Star Wars fan.

I like to collect cool stuff (e.g. Hot Toys / Sideshow figures, replica helmets, lightsabers, ...)

Recently I decided that it was also time to build my own E11 stormtrooper blaster, which introduced me to some very useful build threads on this site.

 

My own build will mainly be based on the following components:

- DoopyDoo's resin kit

- the famous E11 completion kit from Tino (a.k.a. T-jay)

- M38 1942 resin replica scope from Bulldog Props Japan (a.k.a. Brian)

- BlastFX + mini scope electronics from TRamp

- 3D printed parts from Shadow Defence Systems on Shapeways

 

Looking forward to sharing ideas and build pictures!

 

 

Kind regards,

Patrick

Clarify that it's the Japanese Bulldog Props.

Thanks Dan :duim:

 

Yes the parts are looking great! Still waiting for the electronics to arrive, but I already started by making the scope rail and some initial drilling on the resin kit to install the cool details from Tino's completion kit.

 

Kind regards, 

Patrick

That list sounds very interesting - though I am not sure if I would ever buy a completion set...  ;)

Can't wait for your build thread...

Yes, someone dropped a few hints... :engel:

Unless you have some kind of multiple personality issue I can imagine that you won’t buy your own kit. ;)

Even though I had already acquired some of the parts, others proved difficult to find (especially in small numbers). Very happy that I bought it! :jc_doublethumbup:

Welcome to the FISD Patrick!

Once you finish your blaster I recommend a suit of armor to accentuate it.

 

Good Luck with your build:duim:

Haha, I already have an ANH helmet from RS prop masters. Can't decide on a full costume yet... :smiley-sw013:

Well, you sort of have to...blaster and helmet will get lonely without the armor and eventually develop stress-related cracking and paint flakes...:P
