Halo Reach Pistol Prop


So I got a few solid resin reach pistols from a guy by the name of Smick6 on The RPF. They’re very nicely done and I hope the paintwork compliments his castings πŸ™‚

If you need anything customized, let me know! Johnsonarms76@gmail.com

A pirate pistol I’ve been working on


20121108-171025.jpg

I call it a pirate pistol and I bet its something else..but it looks legit and that’s what matters, right? πŸ™‚ it’s not the nicest casting ever with a small upsweep in the “barrer packing bar”. I assume it was just bent during a high-seas ship assault, hehe

It is available, email me if you have any interest or think it would make a keen steampunk/sky captain base πŸ™‚ Johnsonarms76@gmail.com

Thanks!


Moving Day 11-3-12


So the day has finally come to move into a more proper workspace! Here’s some photos of the chaos and a bit of the stuff I’ve collected over the years, a lot of which I forgot I had, haha.

Now that I have a much higher rent bill, expect to see us making a lot of use of the new room. If you’re ever in the neighborhood, feel free to make a trip over to see it in person! πŸ™‚

Just a quick photo of the Nerf Vera custom. I just have to cement a few pieces and paint that riser for the scope πŸ™‚

Let me know what you think, I’ll have the final photos done in a day or two!

Demon Blood Sword taking shape!


Demon Blood Sword taking shape!

Finn’s Demon Blood Sword (from the cartoon “Adventure Time”) made a lot of progress this week. All the pieces are together and the blade has been sanded into a nice even shape. This will be finished up next week, so check back for final photos. Thanks to my Dad for his fabrication skills! πŸ™‚

and yes, I can probably do additional copies for any interested parties. My email is Johnsonarms76@gmail.com Thanks!

PHOTO AVALANCHE Update! 9/4/12


I’m sorry for the lack of posting recently, it has been a busy time here at Johnson Arms, haha.  I’ve been bad about taking photos, but I hope this edition will show that I’m trying to remedy this.  I hope that some of the secret projects will be post-able soon, but until then, I’ve been trying to keep busy with private commissions.  There’s probably going to be a duplicate in this posting, but I hope it will be the best quality version you’ve seen thus-far, hehe.   Thank you as always for your interest and support in what I do.  You guys make this a lot of fun, even when it’s a stress-facotry πŸ™‚

Thanks for checking them out and I appreciate you telling your friends who dig this kind of stuff πŸ™‚

If you need to reach me regarding a question or commission, please email me directly at [email]johnsonarms76@gmail.com[/email]. I promise to get back to you as soon as I can πŸ™‚

Lord Brimstone lives!


20120822-121444.jpg

Here are some photos of the project I worked on with Christopher Glas Studios. It’s a slightly modified Nerf Stampede…lol. Ok, it’s a LOT modified. πŸ™‚ I hope you all approve and I’ll try to link some video of the gun in use. It’s rather impressive, I think!

Newest SOCOM M6 Magnum replica!


Just a quick update on the newest M6 SOCOM kit. Humidity has slowed everything down for the past few weeks, but tomorrow we bring in the solution! A dehumidifier that can extract up to 16 gal per day. I’m excited to see it earn it’s keep πŸ™‚

The M6 kit is by Benjamin Armstrong and it has a lot of really killer details. This first one is spoken for, but let me know if you want one of your own. I promise they will be special πŸ™‚

The Rhino 50DS you see is by wonder squid on RPF. They’re modeled after the gun used in the new “Total Recall” revamp film. I have orders ready to go as soon as the kits are finished. Let me know if you want to be in the list!

Halo Commando Helmet


20120725-150224.jpg

I had a helmet donated for the purposes of seeing what I could do with a Carter helmet. Here’s the helmet at about 90% (still needs the visor!) – if anyone is curious about my choice of blue..I liked this better than Periwinkle lol

If you have interest in your own JA customized Helmet, let me know! Johnsonarms76@gmail.com20120725-150721.jpg20120725-150735.jpg20120725-150754.jpg

This one is almost done, I just need to add a few more details to finish it up! The custom magazine is a functional with 6 rounds capacity πŸ™‚

For the Emperor!


A few new things


It’s been a busy week with a lot of rain here in Florida. Β Not the best combo, but I make the most of the dry time I do have. Β  Here’s a few photos I hope you’ll enjoy until the next big update πŸ™‚Β

Adventure Time Sword Prop


I was customizing an Adventure Time sword and got a big reaction to this progress photo. I thought I’d put the offer out there to make some more if anyone’s interested. Any combination of colors you’d like. Thanks and I hope you all have had a chance to check out the show, it’s awesome πŸ™‚

Trigun Longcolt Complete


Here’s the newest Longcolt for any Trigun Fans out there! I ended up having to use aluminum pipe to support the cylinder. I also threw out the crummy nut and bolt hardware for the frame’s pivot point. It’s all fixed in place now, but it looks a lot better and it’s a hell of a lot more secure for handling πŸ™‚

I’m ready to get after another one if anyone’s interested. Thanks!

Custom N7 Rayven progress


20120616-122015.jpg

Thought I’d also share the custom Rayven I’m doing for fun. The front grip is from a NERF hornet secured with the rail adaptor sourced from a stampede shield. The scope is from an airsoft kit.

If this one interests anyone, let me know because it’s going to need a home next week πŸ™‚

A Faire to remember


20120527-195859.jpg

So I did my first public show yesterday at the Orlando Mini-Maker’s Faire. I brought out a bunch of stuff and really had a great time sharing them with a lot of great people. If you were one of those kind souls, thank you for your interest and patience as I figured out how to answer 3 peoples questions at one time πŸ™‚ I think I’ll be better prepared for whatever’s next – thanks for being a part of the event!

My thanks to the great folks who put on the event, it was so well organized. I hope I’ll always see that kind of professionalism (that might be wishful thinking, hehe)

All the Best,
Brian
