The thing weighs about 10 pounds right now, and it ain't gettin' lighter.
Both "casings" were made of green florist's foam, carved into shape with a hacksaw, coping saw, file, sander, dremel, and aggravated porcupine. The front grip casing has a layer of Wonderflex stretched over it and Apoxie Sculpt clay lining the edges for definition. After this dries, I'll be sanding the whole thing to make it ready for a few coats of glossy white paint. The rear casing will be getting the same treatment.
