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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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:

Just a quick photo of the Nerf Vera custom. I just have to cement a few pieces and paint that riser for the scope ๐Ÿ™‚

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


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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Further progress on Vera! Started on The Demon Blade from AT

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Working in the wet of Florida


Greetings!

I am sorry for any perceived slowdown in weapon production here at Johnson Arms. Lol The weather has been a real problem as the general high-humidity of southern Florida. All that aside, I have been keeping busy and have a few photos to show from the last week. Much more to come, promise!

All the best,
Brian

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? ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for the visit and here’s a few photos of stuff you’ll see more of 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Custom NERF Vigilon gets some paint and Jayne’s Vera gets some character!


Sorry for a short post tonight, but I wanted to get a few photos up before heading out. I painted the rear part of the Vigilon to get a sense of the color-scheme (military/HALO-ish) and from that I think the gun will look pretty cool when it’s all done. I also started breaking up the canvas that is my NERF version of Vera from the TV show Firefly. That’s one heck of a detailed prop and so I’m doing my best to replicate the different surfaces. I’m certain it will look good when it’s done, but I’m shooting for great so we’ll see how the next week goes!

Enjoy the pictures and thank you for visiting my humble little blog site. ๐Ÿ™‚
