This weekend is MegaCon in Orlando, Florida and I’ll be there with my son and some friends! If you’re planning to be there, I hope to get a chance to meet ya 🙂 Although I don’t plan to carry an armload of props, I will be planning to bring a few things just for fun.
Have fun and see you guys there!
Here’s a few photos since last month’s update! More coming soon! 🙂
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. 🙂 (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!
I’ve had some interest in District 9 props lately, so here’s a few new and old projects to show a few that I’ve worked on. Hope they’re looking good, the rifle will be done soon 🙂
So I have been testing paint on foam for some big projects later this year. As a result, I think I have found a good formula to make the these foam weapons “realistic” and pretty durable. Some extended testing will be done, but I feel confident that if you need a cool prop for your convention persona, these should work great.
Email me if you have any interest in placing an order, thanks!
Here’s some photos of the before and after!
Photo time! Thanks for keeping up with these projects I hope they’re up to snuff 🙂 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! firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
With all the new Nerf blasters coming out, I thought I better get after a few customs. Let me know what you guys think and any suggested themes 🙂
Here’s the semi-auto Stryfe:
and some Firestrikes ready to get started 🙂 More photos of those soon!
And a few bonus photos of how the Stryfe looks with some extra kit!
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 🙂
If you need anything customized, let me know! Johnsonarms76@gmail.com
Hey folks! Here’s some progress photos from this week’s projects. It’s my weekend with the kids, so sorry there won’t be more of my element prose…oh, you’re ok with that? Well carry on then! Lol
Thanks for the visit and email me if I can be of service! 🙂
Here’s some progress on a custom P90 commission. The camo design is not a copy of anything specific, it just looked good! 🙂
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 🙂
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 🙂
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 🙂
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:
Thanks for the visit!
Brian J 😉
I was able to get some color on the Demon Blood Sword tonight. Please do not look directly at the sword, its pretty damn bright now 🙂 Thanks for checking out the progress, this will definitely be done by Thursday 🙂
Just a quick photo of the Nerf Vera custom. I just have to cement a few pieces and paint that riser for the scope 🙂
Let me know what you think, I’ll have the final photos done in a day or two!
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! 🙂
and yes, I can probably do additional copies for any interested parties. My email is Johnsonarms76@gmail.com Thanks!
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 🙂
I had a lot of Firefly requests thanks to Halloween coming up and I hope these will pass inspection! There’s some other stuff mixed in as well so I hope you enjoy the photos. Please let me know if you need something for yourself 🙂
Here’s some photos of projects recently worked on. I hope you see something you like 🙂
Thanks for the visit and please check me out on Deviant Art Johnson Arms on dA if you enjoy seeing this kind of thing. I am also always interested in commission pieces.
I worked on a few projects with Dad this weekend, both being ones that I can’t wait to see finished. I’ll add a few photos of the progress and expect more progress soon! (They have to be done for Halloween!)
As always, thanks for visiting and sharing! 🙂
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 😉 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 🙂
Johnson Arms Replicas and Props
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 🙂
Thanks for checking them out and I appreciate you telling your friends who dig this kind of stuff 🙂
If you need to reach me regarding a question or commission, please email me directly at [email]email@example.com[/email]. I promise to get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
All the large projects are done and now I can get back to all the side-projects! I’ll be getting more of these soon so let me know if you’re interested in owning one of these for your display case 🙂
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,
So I was requested to do a few more of the Finn swords, which I was very happy to do 🙂 This is Sword #2 (I will take better photos soon, I swear!)
Thanks for checking it out and I can be contacted for more at your request 🙂
