Wow.

That looks AMAZING

Nothing like resin at all - it looks like you're handling real weapons there. Very impressive work Oota - you've done yourself proud.

When can I have mine? ;)

Fantastic!

The paint finish is superb. I had to run downstairs and make sure the sight I got back from you was the real one - yours looks so close. :p

Pricing:
E-11 kit $220
Sterling kit $160
Barrel only $100
Resin parts only $120

Full E-11 build up including weathering $380

Please note the kit does not include a spring at this time. I'll add this to the kit if and when I find something suitable. A built E-11 will include a hand wound spring

Purchasers of any of my stuff will receive a discount on these prices. I will most likely be making these in batches of ten and the first list is filling fast.

If you are on a budget I reckon go the PVC route. PVC is only slightly larger in diameter and the resin parts could be fairly easily adapted.

I'm not sure at this stage whether I'll keep these prices I'll see how it goes as the materials are reasonably expensive

If you are interested please PM me I will add you to the list Cheers!

Hey all second run on the E-11s is half full. If it fills soon I'll run all the barrels at once cheers!

HI all Run 2 is full I'm opening up Run 3. Thanks to everyone who wants one of these. apologies to those who had to double confirm their interest. Expect about a 3 or 4 week turnaround for Run 1 and maybe another week or two for Run 2. I'm just getting my head around how quickly I can turn these around/ ordering material blah blah
Cheers
