Ok, here is an update:
I found my multi-tool and it has an awesome knife blade so I've been using that to cut through the plastic
Here is where I'm at right now:

I've sanded the one half and cut it, and now I'm working on the other half
I think what I'm going to do next is finish sanding and then put bondo on the orange part to even it out

Is it possible to do something like a leather wrap on the handgrip thing? It just looks too nerfy and it might help with the look of it

I'm considering making it a heavy blaster pistol (like the Imperial Guards' pistols)

I just need to find more pictures of it

Update: So I finished trimming the bottoms of the two halves, now I am finishing up sanding.

Since I need to use something to even out some of the surfaces, I would like y'all's opinions on what I should use. Bondo? Apoxie putty? Play-doh?

Also, what should the trigger look like? I know I have to trim it, but I don't really know how little/much I should trim

And what should I do about the grip? It looks really nerf-y right now and I dunno what I should do about it

Concerning the nerf grip, you could always fill in all the details with bondo, and then carve a crasshatch pattern into it.

sorry for the necropost lol

sooooo it's been a while

I got a little done tho

I finished sanding the body and cut and painted the trigger
(haha quick story about the trigger, I went to paint it and accidentally sprayed it with the rubber used for cars and didn't realize it until the paint started peeling off so I had to redo the trigger)



It looks kinda weird in the picture but I promise it looks better irl

Here's the gun with the trigger



I screwed the two halves together and am (mentally) preparing to do the bondo within the next few days

I also cut the mag in half to make my side mag



(it's the bottom one, and I dremeled along the black line to smooth it out)

cool it's been 24 hours

alright

I decided to sacrifice my sense of smell and begin bondo-ing today

I used almost all of the package that I bought, but I got a lot done





(that black rectangle is where I'm going to attach the side mag)







Before I paint it, do I need to prime the bondo-ed areas?

Edit: so I attached the side mag to the gun and bondo-ed it together (my dad suggested that I cut a hole in the side of the gun so that it would be a bit more secure) and it looks pretty good considering it's my first time ever working with bondo


(please excuse the blurry image and the bad lighting)








I hope I never have to smell bondo again lol

That's looking like a pretty cool hand cannon! I'd definitely sand that down to a 220 grit, and then prime it before painting. Do you have any plans for the nerf stock mounting point?

I don't really have any yet, maybe I'll attach a small stock or smooth it out

If I may offer a suggestion before painting: this would be the best time to put in some accent lines on the body of the blaster so that it doesn't look like a big, angry, imposing slab. That'll also cut down on the amount of greebles you'll need to flesh it out.
