Hey troopers,

 

I have recently finished my E-11 build and wanted to share it with the TK world to see what you all think. I took a lot of ideas and inspiration for my build from other troopers build threads on here so I'm am hoping to do the same in return for future TK's.

This is where it all began.

Once I received my Doopydoos resin kit, I watched a lot of E-11 build threads and gathered as much info about the movie used blasters as well as obtaining a copy of the Stirling SMG users manual.

I started by drilling out the filled hole on the underside of the barrel. I also made a spring from a wire coat hanger and the barrel inset from some black metal tubing I had on my garage.c28d9ff900f38155eb9a03b51c7a1dbe.jpgf431a726c478952cfe6f9db52f42619e.jpg3a2fd9070aa7642c4ffbe24f02ffd582.jpg096500ae0ea8f2bec611115081ab0439.jpg734418ecfdb555db732403f5e19282da.jpg9a0091780cc8dec897924fed89e50f1e.jpg

After lots of sanding, I inserted the barrel, spring and made a cocking handle from a small piece of wood that I attached the handle to using a small screw.159223f43d4681703c3703a661c16e07.jpgb9a97f19c09412866502b38cd505aa17.jpg756823d1b2525a239321e229bd5ea3a6.jpg9cc721915d24cb2114c8290264c75bf6.jpg

Next I cut out the holding stock and drilled out the holes, I removed the in station fixings from the hinge part of the stock and found that if I use 2 bolts and the thread from kitchen cabinet connectors, this worked really well as a moving part to attach the stock to the gun.

I used a small metal pipe from an old lamp (with an opening in the side cut out), a spring from a cheap garden ornament, an Ikea flat pack screw (cut down with hole drilled for attaching another smaller screw. All made it so the smaller screw fits in the barrel inset on the front underside of the gun so it can be pushed back to release the stock from the body of the blaster.8a5024286ea68b7b141dc4b88455f5fa.jpg16e59699707ca68155c2cb024f043364.jpge031b7b91e62ac4dbec15e0c94d31211.jpg2f9a14a63e80a0d4274eceaa2440fd26.jpg3284f20a6ea5808bca776abd6f5388d8.jpgdca2d78988beca90c0de3d09fec6e452.jpg1fa4c45478805c414d92cc3641a14146.jpgbba35ce12db271c07583d74aa304a67c.jpg887815d557fa11901d2c0d5f646e74cc.jpg020a3ee6db72eb6ecb715b0f3af1f1be.jpg

I sanded and attached using gorilla super glue, the casing and flash guards to the body of the blaster.

I made a "D" ring from some wire and cut out the back to accomodatectge ring and holding piece, flush and glued on the rear sight.c9f5a09fe25390167a06c0bf7464ed3d.jpg309165c5f322a73ee07c1e8a3638244b.jpg1ef00e1f7db11dff7a52a0aec6d1fb40.jpg024b70d8789ffa7b7f797fc89bf58afb.jpg

I made my own trigger guard from aluminium as the doopydoos supplied one seemed rather small.

I also used a small spring behind the trigger to allow it to move.a651f93be27252e3965c7e75a1dc8cd2.jpg68f261581ec409670d6ba37fccc6fe06.jpg6e034875a886ec372518b2db0fd031b9.jpgb09c234af68fb3a2534201bfee04ba2a.jpg71f7da203d1f01d81fc24286f1384c6b.jpgd97db6ae28f9e13b11350359ac8725f9.jpg

I attached the handle to the main body of the blaster using screws hidden inside the handle.b1057370f518eb7c16f34723cfa4d24a.jpg3453c227104e42dfa4435557759df664.jpg53ada45a651c6cd750aaea3796a84398.jpg

I added grub screws to the magazine housing and attached to the blaster.

Then a magnet to the inside of the magazine to make it removable.3ab0afc3c0be7df44286454f9d40865e.jpgde49fd5711f14986f4445f06594f78b5.jpg7394649fff749bfafa5e0a9443f73f92.jpgd6a997049039ffd6d5df7955b1867ceb.jpg7c2dfe4f5b8cce5de4eae57ec657000b.jpg709ee43af819d42d07a81f3be4b8b872.jpg3ea92311a23a7d94c8e53bf38644d13a.jpg509f22c96ad62577866f468025e2e2e8.jpg3f685022c5a3168de69db69509d610f3.jpg6efda457e15911745bcbc5ea9af85813.jpg

I added small glasses screws to the scope to give that little more of an authentic look.94cef2a8e5b7f9f9f05e2a0efad6b27b.jpg

Made a scope rail and bracket from a piece of strip aluminium and added some more real screws.9d8dd89091c194f77e18761f60e1a88f.jpg04ba2ae4e4778bdefe18184f00560997.jpgb15046f6cc4a2aa47f05c699258d9629.jpgb6490fc0cf7dc3382cfb14376e6b61fd.jpg97053858101485b5298f9db4e0a0836d.jpg0c2d5558e221f6d9995d2c0c3fef74eb.jpgaa5404bcf1742620bd571459c9b447d5.jpgf74e433df66b15448509f46e33acc56f.jpg0a9bc93fe6c0ae48b1e73f642b7a7596.jpg0569f1969605400cda6cbf46b4a626e7.jpg

I found the Doopydoos resin kit to have rather a lot of small air bubble holes in it, so I filled as many as I could using green stuff. I added more real screws and created the counters plug pieces from scrap armour cuttings.acec199847f4c0904101fb0dfaa2315d.jpg935ee3c144fb7d7ca33df0b5bc64c2a4.jpgabc1bf0848645851de9dd241da7c0f60.jpga3ece7985943854675ca1edc7aa6d2d5.jpg5e4d5b45ce1e1430527de1ff8afe5e40.jpg

Using more greenstuff, I increased the size of the inner notches on the back cap as well as tighten the gap when the end cap is fitted to the main body of the blaster. 68023b6bdf099c2c33887fd3fea55d2d.jpg23fac111cfd93375d30389c5e721c20f.jpg

I then decided to work on the power cylinder to try and achieve a more movie accurate appearance.

I dremmiled out the moulded cylinders and fashions my own from odd pieces of coloured plastic with green stuff on the end, holding in the wires.

I added the side wings from scrap PVC.

Created the rear wires from boot laces. I know they are not red, but I thought that this wouldn't matter as I was going to paint them black.222d75330b5e24843555971531efd0df.jpg3a0b31d80615ca20befe05b7fd03b469.jpg4fcbe3aeb6913384af5fb13e039251b6.jpg4668befb03cd70fbd3c2ada434355c9a.jpg48f0c9865669fc4810ab0362608b3f74.jpg4e386b66aac24648093d5723ddb99e29.jpge2343ab558aa768deab355a1fdec987b.jpg8c2b1f679d35dc640072b52726d9eba8.jpg97781cec40e84f923334077f83e8563a.jpgd0bbcb93922e931f6744660a3fc8a03b.jpg

Looking at other blaster images, I decided to make, from scrap armour plastic, the magazine clip. Not sure about actual sizes, but I think it will look ok once painted.

I also added a push button from a done nut, a small copper tube, a spring and a screw. The button works, but my skills in being tidy need some work ("off" letters could be neater)!

And I made the perspex piece for the back of the counter.f454c4d7334d5d6828c3d38de3c118a2.jpg0a5154cd39bd4e1d488be6eba5cf2caf.jpg281fb5e3d0c287f33aea52c0fe9630da.jpgc314ca7b1ddb81336af007f22110b386.jpg7e545f17bd2ca8b5495e5a9b0c6fc440.jpg6e3bfa55246d32d04d23ca21c8eb89ee.jpg

Following advice from Triumphmark over on the UKG, I decided to go with:
Handle: black gloss.
'T' tracks: black gloss.
Everything else: Flat Matt black.
And Silver for the trigger housing, various screws and weathering.

I wanted my blaster to look used (Loyaly served the Empire for many years).

For the scope, I went against drilling out the sight, as I have been only using items I could find at home. I used CD disc foil on gaffer tape, with red film and clear plastic to try and create a better that silver foil ended scope.95f1999ef9287a8b55e73ef05d091e4c.jpg3dedeb90d0d492e13a339fa50c0e69b4.jpg905de8395b8cd8fdcf9d8d1e6660693f.jpg7a9b4a3a907c4f6d68069e872d8003b8.jpge59e97e797fbf077eb8af5695a1a0796.jpg18e11ea9d45fb27ff53b1120c67fd231.jpg76ce4db07c45bf93c51a7c5364ca1f37.jpg5c6cbb55d8d75c3d5324aa3f3c839a31.jpgc4cb4741e21f45ab1b37cdb17a1877f3.jpg712cc39bd8f832972715197066cc417d.jpg

I filled and painted the stock hinge bolts, added counter numbers with clear cover and filled the scope lettering with white crayon.

Please let me know what you trooper think.

I have also posted a constructed before and after paint pics.

What a marvelous blaster you have, I really like the paint job, much like bow I did mine. Love that rear foot of the scope, flush to the side edge of the rail you have alot of details down, impressive.
