  2. UPDATE: Added 1942 M38 scope as primary option.
  3. UPDATE: Added 5/8" wooden dowel (false barrel) to the parts list on drawing BAPTY.PDF.
  4. STL files for my E11 Bapty blaster model have now been published on Thingiverse. The optional cut off magazine is not pictured below, but is available on the Thingiverse page. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4054398/files This is a variant of the E11 blasters used in Star Wars for the filming of the Tatooine scenes in the deserts of Tunisia. For this purpose, the Sterling SMG MK4 (L2A3) was modified (by Bapty &Co.) by removing parts or replacing them with dummy parts. Because this project uses common parts with a stock Sterling, I am only including parts that are unique to the Bapty blaster. The rest will be a bit of a scavenger hunt. Please open the BAPTY.PDF file to inventory the files needed. All parts beginning with "BAPTY" can be found on this (Thingiverse) page under the "Thing Files" tab. For files beginning with "E11ANH3", go here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3989097 For files beginning with "STERLING", go here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4003566

  7. It was pointed out to me that the grip I modeled resembled a MCG Sterling rather than an L2A3. I scrapped the first grip and modeled a new one with a more rounded profile. I’m much happier with this one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. A few years ago, I bought a Sterling SMG Mark IV L2A3 parts kit. My plan was to create molds to reproduce accurate parts to build a few blasters. My efforts were only partially successful. Frustrated, I abandoned the project and set the kit aside. Fast forward, and last year a friend of mine bought a 3D printer. By trade, I am a mechanical designer with access to a very nice piece of modeling software, SolidWorks. I decided the way to move forward on my quest to acquire an extremely accurate E11 blaster would be to develop 3D models by measuring parts from my kit and having my friend print them. I researched information on the accessories that transformed a Sterling into an E11. Lots of good stuff out there. I bought a replica 1943 M38 tank scope and modeled that. Same for t-tracks and power cylinders. The only thing I couldn’t find a satisfactory level of detail on, was the Hengstler counter. In full disclosure, I borrowed one from Thingiverse. After making a 3D model of an ANH E11, I decided to try my luck at recreating a Bapty. Most of the modeling had already been done. I just needed to make the right modifications. Again, after much research, I made a model that I think is pretty close. I am not yet what I would call an expert on the Bapty. I am appealing to your collective expertise as seasoned veterans of the MEPD. I am attaching some pictures of the complete model. I would appreciate any feedback you could offer.
