THE WHOLE KIT IS ACTUALLY CONSTRUCTED FROM TWO, YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT TWO ORIGINAL STERLING MACHINE GUNS ONE THAT WAS CUT UP TO RETAIN AS MUCH OF THE DETAILING BODY PARTS AS POSSIBLE AND THE OTHER WAS CUT UP TO RETAIN AS MUCH OF THE MAIN BODY AS POSSIBLE
WITH THIS IS MIND WHAT YOU GET FOR A FRACTION OF THE COST OF HACKING UP TWO DEACTIVATED MACHINE GUNS IS AN IMPRESSIVE LIGHTWEIGHT 1:1 DETAILED CASTS OF A COMPLETE 1:1 COPY OF A STERLING
ON THE MAIN BODY ALL THE VENT HOLES THAT ARE NOT COVERED BY A BARREL FIN ARE OPEN EXCEPT FOR THE ONES UNDER THE FORWARD STOCK TO GIVE YOU AS MUCH SURFACE AREA TO GLUE THE SWING ARM TO BUT THEY ARE STILL THERE IN RELIEF DETAIL SO YOU CAN DRILL THEM OUT IF YOU REALLY WANTED TO
ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS TO OBTAIN AND GET RIGHT IS THE FINS SO TO SAVE TIME AND HASSLE WE HAVE INCLUDED THEM ALREADY MOULDED IN PLACE WITH FINS THAT LOOK AS IF THEY REALLY GO INTO THE FINAL VENT HOLES THEY HAVE EDGE SEAMS SO DON'T ACTUALLY LOOK MOULDED IN AND IN SOME PLACES THE REMAINING VENTS CAN JUST BE SEEN UNDERNEATH SO CAN BE VIEWED UP NICE AND CLOSE WHEN OUT TROOPING
ALL SERIAL NUMBERS AND MARKING ARE VISIBLE ON THE MAIN PARTS WE HAVE ALSO ADDED REGISTRATION MARKS TO THE MAIN BODY TO SHOW THE PRECISE LOCATION OF THE MAIN GRIP, THE MAGAZINE HOUSING
IT SHOULD BE VERY EASY TO ASSEMBLE EVEN FOR THE MOST NOVICE OF BUILDER IT REALLY IS JUST GLUE AND PLACE EVEN THE MOLD LINES ARE ON THE UNDERSIDES/ NON VISIBLE PARTS SO THE CLEAN UP IS REALLY SIMPLE WITH OVER 90% HIDDEN BY THE GRIP, STOCK, AND LOCK THE VISIBLE LINES OF THE MOLDING ISJUST AN INCH BEHIND THE GRIP AND AN INCH FRONT OF IT
AS MENTIONED ABOVE THE PARTS ARE FIRST GENERATION CASTS FROM 2 GENUINE STERLING SUBS AND HAVE BEEN MODIFIED SLIGHTLY TO REFIT AROUND THE MAIN BODY WITH ADDITION OF 38MM RADIUS SO THAT THEY SIT FLUSH TO THE BODY AND CAN BE GLUED WITHOUT THE NEED FOR MAJOR SURGERY OR EXCESSIVE FILLING
THE PHOTO'S DO NOT SHOW,IT BUT THE MAIN BODY IS ACTUALLY HOLLOW SO YOU COULD EVEN FIT A DUMMY SPRING INTO THE MAIN BODY TOO AND THE FRONT BARREL END IS OPEN SO IT WOULD BE ADVISABLE TO PAINT THE TIP ORANGE TO COMPLY WITH YOUR COUNTRIES REGULATIONS THE KIT IS SUPPLIED IN PLAIN WHITE RESIN
YOU GET EVERYTHING DETAILED BELOW THAT YOU NEED TO BUILD YOUR OWN DETAILED 1:1 ANH E-11 APART FROM THE SCOPE RAIL

This is a fantastic kit. With a little effort you can a film accurate Stormtrooper Blastech E-11 blaster.
After I built mine with a little araldite a few screws, painted and weathered it, it was looking better than my Master Replica version, which was missing the power cells on the magazine and the Hengstler counter.
I highly recommend this kit.
I've just put another order in for a couple more.

I've previously bought 4 kits and have bought another 4. They are of excellent quality. Making the aluminium scope rail and Hengstler counter bracket was no problem for me. Assembling the kit is easy, location points for all the parts are easily visible, Araldite and Superglue are all that's needed. I screwed the front of the folded butt stock to the barrel leaving a very slight gap for added realism, I was just being fussy!
There are about 8 version of the Stormtrooper blaster in the original film, a combination of with and without Hengstler counter and twin magazine housing cylinders, different shaped scope rails, and 2 different scopes but it's the 'M38' tank scope supplied here, not the less common 'M32' version. Buy 8 kits and you could build each version (modify the m38 scope to an M32!) Superb prop replica!!! Worth every penny.

The best full e11 kit I've ever seen. Everything is included except the scope rail and mount for the counter, but they are very easy to make or buy from any hardware store.
The detail of the kit is excellent right down to the sterling serial numbers and stamps. Easy to assemble with placement marks already on the barrel for all the pieces.
Simply glue together, paint and you have a superb movie replica. Value for money is 10 out of 10. I'll be buying another one soon.
