justjoseph63[Staff] Posted September 20, 2022 Report Share Posted September 20, 2022 Quick back-story- I saw Kevin's @kmwilson343 3D E-11 sales thread a while back, and having some down time thought it was time for another project. Since I already own an E-11, I figured I could build it and after completion offer it up for auction here** with the proceeds donated to the JDRF (the FISD official charity) on behalf of the FISD. I got in touch and asked if he had a B-grade for sale (I like a challenge) and he said that he had one that was partially built and would be happy to donate it for the cause and send it my way... and he did! (THANKS)! As mentioned, keep in mind that it was partially built and was a work in progress that was interrupted by me, lol, so I am only carrying it forward. I will be adding a few of my own touches, of course. I will not be posting a ton of photos as there are already many great build threads here, but I will be touching on a few areas that can be a pain when working on a 3D build so please feel free to ask any questions or add any comments. ** Once complete, I have Andrew's permission to do this and will be starting a separate thread for the auction. Unfortunately, due to postal regulations I will not be able to send it outside the U.S. All that being said, time to get started! Looking things over As seen in the pic below Kevin has done a lot of the work ahead of time, and since it was designed by Bryan @trooper96 the details and accuracy are phenomenal! It begins I removed the front sight guard, folding stock and end cap/clip and selector switch for better access to the main body. After some extensive sanding, I thought it best to hit it with a coat of fillable primer. Looks pretty good, right? Well, this is why using the primer helps. Although areas can look and even feel smooth, having everything all one color brings out all those little details that may not be visible otherwise. Time for more Bondo spot glazing.
