Raygun 66: Shaping the Grip

The grip model (black and white on the left) was molded and cast in resin (gray on the right). I wanted the top of the grip to be narrower than the bottom, so I bandsawed the casting right down the middle and sanded a bevel onto both halves. Then I glued the two parts together, and filled in the crack with Bondo™. I'm still trying to figure out what carved design I will inset into the sides of the grip.
