Step 5: Barrel
spray the plastic barrel with plastic primer then normal primer to get a uniformed finish and sand down lumps and uneven sections.
do the same with the front and rear shells. if there are any uneven sections/ dents in the parts fill and sand again untill you get to the finish you want.
test fit the barrel in the two shells to make sure it all fits together.
cut out and construct the claws out of acrylic.
tyhe last pic shows me showing the claw for size comparrison.
