GSh 18 Rotary pistol

Hello. Yesterday i started on this gun and the magazine was finished...or was it. Upon cheking the drawings i realised that the mag is supposed to be angled so i will have to redo the upper portion and the folower. The bottom can remain as it is becouse it doesn't impact performance. I used 4 pieces of cardstock for the magazine box itself and the floorplate is 2 pieces just pinched on the outer ends. Folower is made of one piece and then bended to shape. The spring is a metal wire that i will have to temper so it stays springy. Bullets are also simple, just 2 tubes rolled and put together. I also bought some wood filler so i will try using it to make the surface smoother. Thanks for watching.

Thanks Dough, im glad you like it. The mag is mostly finished, only the slots for the magazine release button are not cut out. The top looks like i chewed off some of it but after painting it will be ok. Im not satisfied with the rounds i made so i painted them red like those training rounds or however they're called. Will make new ones.
They are supposed to be the 7N31 +P+ armor piercing rounds around which the gun was designed.
The rotary barrel allows it stronger lockup and firing high pressure ammo.
I have started work on the frame but instead of building it from the outside and then making the insides im gonna stack different layers from left to right to get everything properly working.
Thanks for your time, have a nice day

Thanks for the support, hope i won't disapoint. After some planing i decided that building it from the inside out.
I cut out 10 pieces with the trigger guard on and it's about 1.1-1.2 cm wide. I still need to stack 14 more layers to add enough thickness for full grip. Also on the middle 4 layers i cut out appropriate slots for the trigger and trigger safety which is similiar to glocks dual trigger (it's basiclly a piece on the trigger on a spring sitting on edge of the frame blocking movement unless pressed. On the back of the front piece are mag release slots and the canal in the middle is for the release spring ( the button can be put on left or right side). After stacking the rest i will shave the sides to get the right curves and carve out the rest of the details and slots for the trigger bar and craddle. Thank you for your time.

Stacking 14 layers! I'm going to assume they are pre-cut. Building from the inside out makes total sense. Keep up the great work.

Looking very good. I would agree that building from the inside out appears to be the way to go.
