    Damn bro! Lots of awesome work. You’ve definitely been busy. I think Nerf and/ or the others should be taking notice and looking to bring you in for some creative development. All the best. You deserve every bit of it!

    • Thanks bruddah! Ya, idle hands, you know? :) Lots of good stuff has been happening lately, so I’m pretty happy to be doing my thing with the guns :) Gotta get you guys up to see all the stuff in person!

    Could you do digital camo?

    May 23, 2011 at 3:51 am

    • Hey Kris,

      I’ve done digital a few times, but it’s so time-intensive, I have to reserve that for people who really want it. It does look really cool when done properly :)

    I have followed your work from the RPF and it is all amazing.. I LOVE the Mass Effect colour scheme, but I am looking for something to modify into a steampunk tri-barrel or quad barrel elephant gun / gatling, so I have a favour to ask… Could you post a pic of the Swarmfire without the shroud on it?

    July 12, 2011 at 3:53 pm

    • I’ll email you any photos I have without the shroud, Dave. Thanks for all your support, I really appreciate it!

  4. Awesome paint and mod work you got. I myself am learning how to do my own mods with my steampunk group, Ironclad Cairo, out of New Orleans. Give us a shout if your coming to town.

    • Thanks and I promise, buddy! Always good to have friends in N.O. :) Do the same if you did yourself in my neck of the woods!

    Hey radical guns man, amazing work I do a little modding myself but I do not do this crazy crud. any who a few questions, how do you do the mods, why so expensive, and do you take out the air restrictors?

    • Hey Nick,

      I make props for films and the Nerf is something I do as well, but for fun. I spend about 2-3 weeks on the guns and that’s the reason for the prices that may seem high, but are about half of what I would normally get for that amount of work if it was on an actual prop. Thanks for checking out my stuff and I hope you’ll continue to enjoy the new ones.

      I don’t do internal mods generally, mainly because if the gun fails its a really bad thing and most of the guns are just for display and not for actually using on a regular basis :)

      Regards
      Brian

    • Hey Nick! The cost is due to the time involved in prepping the gun and then the actual painting. The work involved is about 8 hours on the larger guns and actually the price should be higher, but I do the NERF guns on the side and I just have a lot of fun making and painting them. If you ever give it a try, I’d like to see the results!

    Hey there,

    I’m in the process of trying to build a Mal costume and stumbled across your work on the RPF. Simply Amazing. I actually ended up on your website, and man, talk about cool work! I’m not really even into steampunk and that stuff is just spectacular. Nerf never looked so good. :)

    I had a question for you about the Mal guns. Is there any possibility you could sell me just one of the kits (if you have a supply)? Or at least, to make it worth your while, do a simple paint job on it, nothing that would cause you much headache? I think you said something about it being 225 shipped on the RPF, but I just don’t know that I can afford that right now. Again, I just appreciate your time (and I know that you are painting these out of a love, not making too much profit, if any) so let me know what you think. I can’t tell you how much I love the paint jobs your giving the Mal guns in particular. Seriously, you are talented!

    Thank you sir!

    Hi,

    I am very very interested in your NERF mods.

    Could please let me know which of them are currently available? Their cost? The cost for shipping them to Italy?

    Thanks

    Hey I saw you at the Orlando Mini Maker Faire and on your table you had a airsoft M16, or at least I think it was an M16 but can you e-mail me the prices, colors, options, and if its not to much to ask some pictures.

    Thank You

    your work is amazing. could u leave a direct link to where i can buy ur stuff

    August 21, 2012 at 8:41 am

    • Hi Joel! I like to make it hard to order, haha. Ok, not really, but I’m not set up to handle that volume of orders. You can always reach me directly at johnsonarms76@gmail.com :)

      August 25, 2012 at 7:30 pm

  11. epic guy

    could you pls put some cheaper mavericks on that are under £20. doesnt have to be your best but if that is posible i would be veryy happy

    August 22, 2012 at 11:04 am

    • I wish I could, but nothing I make could be anywhere in that price range, unfortunately. I do the NERF for fun, but they still take a ton of time just to prep and make ready for painting. That alone would make the price beyond the €20 you mentioned. I’m still really honored that you’d want to own something I made, regardless.

    Hello there I am simply amazed by the level of work that you put into your creations! I had a question for you though. Exactly how far could you take a modification? For example could you make a functioning nerf gun resemble a bolter from Warhammer 40,000?
    Thanks

    September 18, 2012 at 5:04 am

  13. Christian Randle

    Also what paints do you use if you don’t mind me asking?

    September 18, 2012 at 5:12 am

    • Mainly Testors paints (enamels) and some of the other quality model paints. Mostly stuff you can find at a hobby shop. I hope that helps!

    Johnson Arms… If you could possibly make a Halo Assault Rifle Replica for me… I would love to buy it. Dunno if you could contact me, but I would absolutely love that.

    I love looking at your unique paint jobs they are spectacular and show extreme skill. Keep up the good work. I was wondering how you do your pricing is it based on the amount of paint or the amount of time and email me i was interested in you painting one of my guns.

    October 13, 2012 at 4:56 am

    • Hey Michael!

      I really appreciate your comments, it really does help to see them through another set of eyes. Pricing is a really tough thing to put into a formula other than just a general hourly rate and a (hopefully) an accurate estimation of time to complete. I try to be fair and not charge my “business” rate. I do have to charge for my free time, haha. What I generally hold to is pistols are about 250 and rifles start at about 500 for the fancy stuff :) I promise I put all the effort I have into each of ‘em, regardless of what they started as :)

      Any time you need a quote, I’ll be right over here <— hehe Take care and talk to you soon!

  16. @ndrew

    You need to add more to your web store there are many i would consider buying i just dont know the prices , how much for the longshot in the vero 2.0 edition section

    November 4, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    • I appreciate your opinion, Andrew! I don’t like to know that someone is having trouble commissioning a prop :) The best way to get a price quote is to email me directly with a link or image to what you’re wanting. I can get back to you directly with prices and also answer any other questions before you settle on something specific. My email is johnsonarms76@gmail.com if you’re still interested, thanks!

  17. duncan

    hey could you make a custom MA5 or BR55 from halo. I would freeken love that

    November 22, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    • They’re rather expensive, but I may have another commission for one soon. If so, it may also have the lighting and ammo counter installed. That would look nearly perfect! Stay tuned!
