E-11 still in progress…..

Posted: May 25, 2011 in Prop Building

Okay got a drill press and a decent press vise.

Here is where we sit for now.

Thought to be long extinct the mini hoodoo was sited last week in Coquitlam British Columbia!

Scientists believe it to be a hoax……:)

Had a short chat/exchange with Chad Kroeger today on the Terminators situation and how Arnold is now the new Tiger in the medias eye.

Come on. Everyone involved going into this knew Arnold is a ladies man. So why all the shock and awe?

We were in agreement that Arnold will come out of this really no worse for wear.

Oh and Maria what’s the big deal? The Kennedy’s have a long history of cheating men. Don’t have to like it but you DID know what you were getting into with the man.

Disaster strikes….

Found out drilling uniform holes in cylindrical objects to be near impossible without a drill press and vise…..Pics too ugly to post.

I promised pics of this build so it begins now……………..

Picked up a Foredom SR 1/6 horse rotary grinder! Will beat my old Dremel into the dirt I’m betting.

Looking forward to getting it to work. Have some light metal finishing for it real soon 🙂

Oh almost forgot…I have the E11 blaster tube cut to length now. Have to adhere the template to it tomorrow and start knocking out the barrel shroud holes.

There WILL be pictures.

Well there has been something else I’ve wanted since the fall of ’77.

A Stormtrooper E11. Well I made one out of cardboard tubing and heavy cardboard boxes.

I might upload an old pic (the only one I have) of it if I can get the other people in the pictures permission.

This time it is going to be made out of metal. Aluminum and some steel parts.

Hang in there for pics. It should be fun. Till then it’s airblaster time… phew pew zat!

12 Years old again :)

Finally got a Stormtrooper bucket after….how many years?

It is not one of those anal detailaholic 501 helmets but I’m more than happy with it. eFX did a really nice job on it and for the price it really can’t be beat. It blows away the old Rubies helms by far.

Now where is my blaster……Yes …I AM a nerd! 🙂
