Threesheds' ANH Stunt build WIP


Recommended Posts

Here's some pics of my E11 blaster prints. Any comments welcome please! If there's anything not right, I'd rather know now than after I've started gluing them all together!

Looking great John.

 

Bellow a reference for you to check the scope and Hengstler counter  correct position and other details for your build. Good luck and looking forward for your advances.

Perhaps some info here can be useful for you.

T bars glued on and folding stock assembled and positioned ready for glueing.
 

I've glued the T-bars on, pics below:

I've also assembled the folding stock and positioned it ready for glueing.

 

By my reckoning, the front of the folding stock should just overhang the front the of the muzzle by a few millimetres, as I've positioned it here.  Does this all look good for glueing?

Rail in place, scope screwed to rail and checking positioning for hengstler bracket:

Am I all good here? Or should I remove the screws I've used at the back end of the rail and the scope and just glue them instead?

A screw is ok, but personally, I would recommend to use a countersunk one.

It does look a little on the large side.

 

A great thread full of references

I've finished building my E11 blaster rifle - painted and weathered (to the best of my ability at least!)

pics for inspection: does this all look ok for trooping?

Nice work.

 

A couple of things if you look at aiming for higher levels, the T-tracks and grips were gloss black on-screen blasters so would not have any weathering, also there are a few places you can see some print lines: 

  • L2 Expert Infantry
  • 3-D printed blasters can not contain visible print lines, and must be sanded smooth for a more realistic appearance.

I've made a start on my lid build. Following along with RWA Ross's very helpful youtube videos. 

Got the eyes and frown grilles trimmed out, brow band in place, and positioning the front and back pieces with magnets in preparation to drill and rivet the sides.

A few build threads I find useful, especially on trimming the ears ;)

 

 

Some references of screen helmets, many had gaps ;)

Compare your middle teeth, they look a little curved
