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:

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™‚


Shop Update 7-28-12


Hey Folks! Here’s a few of the projects getting wrapped up this week. There’s a few things needing that last 1%, but that shouldn’t keep ya from enjoying the photos πŸ™‚

I’ve had a lot of inquiries about resin replicas this week and I thought I’d let it be known that I can get just about anything if you have the funds! If there’s anything you’ve been looking for, just shoot me an email and I’ll let you know if it’s possible. Thank you very much!

Until next week!

NERF Pulse Rifle Complete


Happy Wednesday everyone! I just wanted to share a couple of the final photos for the converted NERF stampede. I think it came out pretty convincing, but I’ll let you all be the real judges πŸ™‚

Thanks for following the build and stay tuned for more cool stuff!

The Skyship Chronicles – A Steampunk Adventure!


Hey Guys and Gals! My good friends have a kickstarter project that I think you’ll really going to dig! They’re needing some backing to help make the film and I’d really appreciate you checking it out. Your support, no matter how little, will really help to get this made. This world needs more steampunk and you can make that happen! πŸ™‚

You might even see some of my weaponry in the film, that’s gotta be worth a buck or two, right? Lol

Rotator X8 custom progress


20120419-225130.jpg

These Rotator X8’s from Lanard are really popular right now so it’s giving me a chance to play around with more added bits and pieces. This model is apparently electrically powered, but I’m not sure exactly how it works. Looks ok though, yeah? πŸ™‚

Thanks for the visit and here’s a few photos of stuff you’ll see more of soon!

Hi Guys!

So here’s a few photos of some of the things getting finished up in preparation for a top-secret project that starts in a few days. It’s going to keep me pretty focused for about a week, but I promise to post anything else that hits the workbench in the meantime. There are a lot of cool things planned, so definitely check back soon for details!

Thanks for visiting and talk to ya later! πŸ™‚

Steampunk Longshot Progress


Just a few photos from tonight’s work. This one is starting to look nice and broken-in πŸ™‚

The others are just a few other projects that also got some attention. More on those soon!

New projects starting


Just a smattering of new stuff for the week. There’s more, but these seemed like they would be the ones of interest to most of you folks visiting my site. Vash’s Longcolt is a side-project and will be available when it’s done πŸ™‚

Just a bunch of spray painted NERF guns?


I hear that every so often, so here are a few of the upcoming steampunk revolvers (and a slide-action scout). I hope these will satisfy the folks yearning for more embellishments πŸ™‚

Ultimate Custom Nerf Collection?


For now it might be. πŸ™‚Image.

HALO Rayven is complete!


20120216-131719.jpg

Here’s the suppressed combo showing in the photo, but there many other ways to load out the gun including the 18rd “glow” magazine and also a 6rd mag that just looks cool, but not really fuctional for a semi auto. I hope you guys like her and she’s a rare one that doesn’t have a home yet, if you have any interest. Thanks!

Newest version of Jayne’s Lemat


20120131-015718.jpg

I got to use my extra firefly props finally πŸ™‚

This was another “realistic” paintjob, I’m hoping the next one will be a brass one-off. That should look really cool.

HALO style pistol with rubberized grips


20120120-101617.jpg

Weathered up this scout and decided to try out my new rubber coating. It’s designed for dipping so applying with a brush was a bit tricky. After a few tries I think it came out cool and properly weathered to match the rest of the gun. It feels good too, like there’s actually something other thank plastic in your hand πŸ™‚

Just a few more small details and it’s ready to ship out to its new Spartan owner!


Image

Ironsides nears completion!


20120119-121343.jpg

Just have to paint the grip and add some bits and pieces and it’s done! I hope the accents will look appropriate when it’s done. πŸ™‚

Clay skull accent for “Iron sides” Maverick


20120114-220333.jpg

I wanted to add a little something to the mav, so I made a clay skull from the mold I made a while back. I still have to detail the eyes a bit, they need little pupils. Maybe made of small rubies or Swarovski “diamonds”. Just a little sparkle πŸ™‚


Image

HALO Style Speed 6


20120114-000422.jpg

So my friend asked if I could make a NERF gun for her 5 year old’s birthday. That’s a tough thing, guessing the likes of a little kid. I hope I got it right, haha.

I know the colors are a little out of line for the theme, but it just looked too cool not to do πŸ™‚


Image

Wooden Nerf Maverick!


20120105-231548.jpg

Ok, it’s not done, but here’s the first photo of the wooden Maverick with a steampunk feel to it. More depth to be added to the paint, but it’s coming along. I’m starting to like doing the wood finishes! Muahaha πŸ˜€


Photos from the Shop 9-26-11


Welcome back guys! Just some phone snaps from last night showing progress on a few of the smaller guns and such. I also got my first LED working! Quite excited about where that’s going lead on the guns (mmm glowing lights..heh). Anyways, check out the photos and let me know if you’re needing something unique for Halloween or anything else coming up!
