Build log - the new JMC E-11 from TroopaCoola


Recommended Posts

Thanks Tino and Tony. :-)


I’ve given the scope another coat of Humbrol Brass 54, as well as the front end of the Hengstler. As the rear of the original Hengstler counters were plastic, they should not be sprayed with a brass coat. The plastic part would not have had metal effect weathering.

I started to work on the “OFF —>” detailing on the end cap of the magazine, however, it’s not quite to the standard I’d like. I’ll likely do this again.

And finally, the folding stock now has a coat of Hammered Black, so I test fitted it to the barrel. A little shiny still at this moment, but, I’m liking the finish. :-)

Hi folks,

Just a couple of update photos coming up.

A little weight comparison between this JMC E-11 and the DoopyDoos.

Resin t-tracks heated in a pot of boiling water, then shaped into barrel holes.

* note - I wasn’t paying attention and mounted the top-middle track too long - I didn’t reserve the final hole for the scope rail to sit into. I realised this around an hour after spray painting. Thankfully, it was easy to reshape and re attach to the blaster.

Matt Black 33 applied to the tracks and also a light coat over the Hammered black to reduce the shine/gloss.

Never seen resin T-tracks before. :huh:

Surprised to see it was possible to install them.

I expected resin to break on such sharp bends.

Good job. :duim:

Hi Tino,

Yes, I was quite surprised at how well it worked. Came out pretty nicely. :-)

Hey troopers,

A little more progress on this blaster. I’ve now attached the JMC scope and Hengstler to the scope rail. I’ve started a little subtle weathering, too.

Rear end cap needs toning down and lots of other little bits still to do. :-)

Hey folks,

Drawing closer to finishing this blaster.

In this little update, I have;

Added D-ring
Added lock/free screw (actually just a resin cast)
Added hex bolt on bottom of grip
Added spring
Prepared charging/cocking handle

This certainly doesn’t look pretty, however, it looks okay once in the barrel.
I used a child’s garden hoe as the correct diameter to coil my spring.

Looks amazing!  Did Marc happen to mention when the kit may be available to the public?

Thanks, Trooper. :-)

The blaster was officially released back in March, I believe. All sales are done through his Facebook group. https://m.facebook.com/groups/300153641472608/permalink/310426037112035/

Hi Marc. Any chance for a sale thread here on FISD? (for the non-Facebook people) :)

Hey folks,

I’m calling this JMC E-11 kit FINISHED.... (well, for now, at least)

Yes, there are a few areas where I could go to town on parts, replace this, change that, however, this project was initially to see how the JMC E-11 kit (now known as “Kit 1”) was on delivery, how the parts went together, any feedback on how the production models of these could be improved.

The only real additional part I’ve added is the scope rail (which I had already).

I’ll do a summary video soon, covering various parts that I haven’t yet documented, however, my conclusion about this kit is that it is TRULY EXCELLENT!!!
As I’ve said throughout, easy to work with, very well made and supplied by Marc at TroopaCoola, and an excellent final product with impeccable service.

Get your order in today...
