Best way to model a fitted case for an imported part?

Hi everyone,

 

So I am trying to make a thin, fitted case for this "gun."  As you can see from the attached image, the outer surface is not really simple; it has some curves, and the inside is hollow. 

 

I was thinking of creating a part and use the "cavity" function to create the inner surface of the case but because that the inside of this gun model is hollow, the "cavity" function would not work as I imagined.

 

Is there a function or a way to make an outer shell from the imported surface?  Or, is there a way to fill the inside of the hollow parts?  Or, any suggestions on how to accomplish this?

 

Thanks in advance!
