Here’s the almost finished Nerf Vigilon with a Mass Effect inspired paintjob. I hope you guys approve 🙂
I hope you all are finding your own Vortex guns at the local stores, I know I’m seeing people posting on Facebook with their “early” finds. I managed to grab a Proton and Praxis after work and have spent part of the evening shooting my walls with little green frizbees 🙂 I took a few photos of them in stock form so no shocking spy photos here, but I figured I better post a few just in case you haven’t found better ones already online.
They shoot great and I think they’ll make great props. Expect to see them worked into the schedule next week. Let the spring and screw losing being!
The Praxis – the cocking mechanism seems to delay shooting the next round for just a fraction of a second, but maybe I’m just imagining things…still love the gun and it’s design. For the price I kinda expected some scope that would compliment the gun. Ah well…just gotta buy the big daddy for that bit of kit 🙂
More photos soon – lots of new stuff 🙂
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. 🙂
Spent a good part of the day at the workshop and I think I got a lot accomplished. Too tired to know for sure..I’ll check to see what I actually did tomorrow 🙂 Hope these photos will work until I get some good sunlight tomorrow!
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
Thanks to a generous gift in the mail today , I started work on a custom painted Nerf Vigilon from the upcoming Vortex series. It was stamped with a few odd phrases…DO. NOT. SELL. 🙂 I didn’t pay a dime, so I’m going to assume I won’t have my doors kicked in any time soon! I posted some photos below of the gun out of the box as well as into the sanding phase. It’s got putty drying right now, but tomorrow I should be ready to base coat and then get after masking this weekend. I’m really looking forward to seeing how it comes out, because I have no idea what I’m going to do with it at the moment 🙂
Stay tuned, as the photos show there are some other cool props in the works as well! Add me on facebook if you want to see more WIP photos of this and all the other silliness! facebook.com/johnson.arms
Laying out some of the loot
