Custom Nerf Strongarm


Here’s a few photos of a new Nerf Strongarm pistol I’m working on. These are just progress photos, but you’ll hopefully get a feel for where its going, style-wise. πŸ™‚ (the carbon fiber vinyl on the cylinder is temporary for the photo)

This particular model has the full-rollout mod on the cylinder as well as the removal of both air restrictions. It’s become a pretty powerful blaster with those minor changes. Final photos should be up soon and it is available for anyone interested!

Be Well,

Brian Johnson

Lots of Props 1-13-13


Photo time! Thanks for keeping up with these projects I hope they’re up to snuff πŸ™‚ Just keep in mind that many of these are not quite done, so stay tuned for the final photos!

Questions regarding commissions can go here, thank you! johnsonarms76@gmail.com

I will also be posting some new videos this evening on YouTube. They show the props in this post if you’d like to see more (and hear me rattle on! Heh). A search for “Johnson Arms” on youtube should find my channel!

Steampunk Darth Vader Helmet almost finished!


Better photos to follow, but here’s the Vader helmet done up in brass! It’s a full sized two-part plastic shell, so I’m hoping it might get used for a full steampunk some day.

More photos to follow, I just had to get at least one photo out to share πŸ™‚

Next phase will be SP Boba Fett! Hehe

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™‚

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™‚

Thanks to Tony Pagan, the Carter helmet is complete (He also did the sculpt and casting). This one is spoken for, but let me know if you have a helmet that needs painting or would like to purchase your own competed helmet. Thanks for visiting πŸ™‚

Adventure Time inspired Demon Blood Sword Finished!


I usually don’t get too fanboy when it comes to the props I paint, but that went out the window with this sword. It’s so damn red and shiny, lol. I tried to balance out the realistic/cartoon-y look and I think this was a good balance for the first try. Many thanks to my talented Dad for his time spent building this three foot beast πŸ™‚

I hope you AT fans will enjoy seeing the photos (yes, I’ll get a proper photo before it leaves!) and maybe we’ll try another one if you have some suggestions on what the next one should be πŸ™‚

Vera 2.0 – Nerf Edition :)


She’s finally finished, folks! As with many of my creations, this was built over a functioning nerf recon body. There are many differences if you go to fine details, but the “look and feel” have been pretty well preserved. I’m not sure anyone has the wallet to build a CNC’ed version of this, but feel free to prove me wrong, lol. I hope you all approve and will look forward to 3.0 when my Dad is ready to tackle another one of these beauties πŸ™‚

Just to give the proper credit to a very talented builder, the images we worked from are of an airsoft replica called “Alice” made by a UK resident named “Joe F” who goes by JoaTrash. His metal version is something to behold and I hope you’ll have a look:

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!

Vera Pulling together


Yes, another Vera photo..but I think it’s worth it! I’m working on the stock now and should have that done soon. It’s going to be used for a Halloween costume by the commissioner πŸ™‚

Vera 2.0 Progress


So we began work on Vera version 2.0 over the weekend. The magazine came out so nice, I had to share with all you Browncoats out there! The front barrel is only there as a place-holder as the custom barrel is fabricated πŸ˜‰ A huge thanks to Bruce Johnson for the hard work on the custom work. Apparently this stuff does run in the genes, lol

More progress to be posted soon. Email me if you have some interest in owning version 3.0!

If you can dream it, we can make it πŸ™‚

Custom Longshot progress


Here’s a few photos of a project in working on. One is the just the gun, the other is a result of me goofing around in photoshop. I thought you guys might enjoy checking them out. To be clear, this is not in the game, I just thought it looked like it could fit πŸ™‚

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™‚


Halo M6 Magnum SOCOM Prop
