Reference is key. I don't even bother starting a thorough project without it. To get the volume right it's
important to get more views than the side. Too often I see models that suffer lack of reference. I always start
searching google for reference images. Then I contact the manufacturer. They rarely give out blueprints, but
it's worth a try. Then the next step would be to get in contact with someone who owns the gun. From there it's
pretty straight forward.
