Glue them together with some more layers or some little pieces of cardboard.

Then, draw the receiver exactly above the grip. You might think about using it for size comparsion. Copy the receiver, then do the same as in the first line.

Step 5: Do This for the Barrel Cover Also. and the Magazine Well.

Then, after you did all of this to the gun, isolate its sides and the front. Put something in the mag well. You might think about adding a non-moving trigger or details.

Step 6: Disassemble the Sharpie

Take it apart. Keep the cap. With the pliers and hack saw cut a little piece out. Attach it in the front of the gun and the cap in the barrel cover for a bolt.

TRY to understand.

Step 7: Paper Mache It.

Step 8: Finishing Touches
