More work on the Steampunk Longshot


20120406-154148.jpg

Just a quick photo – the end of this build draws near…just need to add the LEDs…yessss. πŸ™‚

Mara Jade’s blaster


20120406-110511.jpg

This started as a all-wood (except for the trigger) kit by Chuck “Woodchuck” Bowman. He’s a real master of wood and PVC construction if you need his services!

Plumbing work for the Steampunk longshot


20120402-231952.jpg

I started to add the plumbing bits to the longshot. I used some liberal amounts of cyanoacrylate to anchor the parts, so they should be as durable as possible!

Recon Pistol conversion


20120330-125716.jpg

This came out looking pretty cool. I’m looking into making a cocking handle so the top slide can be fixed in place. It looks silly when pushed forward and the scope ends up in the wrong place πŸ™‚

The Ripper! [/originalname]


20120329-191357.jpg

The name will change, as will the blaster while I graft on the chain saw portion. Yeah it’s a smaller saw, but I’m not planning to use a damn saw until they’re that close! πŸ™‚

Tactical Nerf Raider


20120328-111125.jpg

This one has a bit of a starwars stormtrooper vibe from the shape and also the paint chipping effect. It should be a nice looking prop when it’s complete.

Steampunk / Wasteland Scout nears completion!


20120328-104800.jpg

Here’s a hew photos before final reassembly. There may be a bit more detail to go on, but this is pretty close. Final photos will show more of the custom work!

Space Marines style Nerf Element 90%

Here’s a quick photo of the almost-finished Nerf Element. I’m looking forward to seeing this one finished

Steampunk Darth Vader Helm


20120325-234418.jpg

Had some time to play with this helmet I picked up a few months ago. It’s not done, but I hope someone gets a kick out of how it’s looking πŸ™‚


Image

Lanard X8 Custom complete


20120321-110105.jpg

Added an extended barrel for accuracy, coupled with an early laser heating system to give almost instant steam power. To keep it streamlined, the water reservoir is hidden inside the insulated hand grip.

And it looks cool, even if all that stuff is completely untrue πŸ™‚

Stainless steel cylindered Maverick


20120315-023838.jpg

So I decided to re-do the standard cylinders that taper a bit. I intend to sleeve each barrel with a brass sleeve to seal the darts better. I’m not sure that the color will stay this way, it was just a painted shell I used as a stand-in. I hope it improves the look of the blaster. The barrels certainly added some nice weight to it of nothing else πŸ™‚

Silenced Lanard X8


20120314-144037.jpg

Ok so it’s pretty quiet to begin with, but I thought it would look cool with the extension πŸ™‚

First shirt printed!


20120314-122502.jpg

Ok, who wants a Johnson Arms limited edition shirt? If I can gauge the response I can get some prices πŸ™‚

Mass Effect Themed Vigilon


20120314-042225.jpg

Here’s the almost finished Nerf Vigilon with a Mass Effect inspired paintjob. I hope you guys approve 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™‚

Let there be light!


20120312-104800.jpg

I thought this one was worth reporting with the brighter background. This will be part of one of the new T-shirt designs so let me know what you think!

The nerve center of Johnson Arms

Though you guys might like to see where I do these paintjobs. Yes, I know where everything is…ok, mostly. Lol

In Honor of Mass Effect 3


20120309-102216.jpg

Here’s my latest N7 rifle, I hope you guys like it and are enjoying the new game. I can’t wait to have some time to check it out myself! Lol

Have a great weekend!

Cold steel! Lanard X8 Custom


20120306-193020.jpg

This is a custom Lanard for a friend of mine, Frank. He wanted a bit darker metal for this piece and although it’s not done, I think it’s getting there. The grip is going to be a bit different as well – that always happens when I find new colors to use πŸ™‚


Image

Pulse Rifle themed Longshot


20120305-075200.jpg

Here she is with a test fitting. There’s still more to be painted, but this should give an idea of what it’s going to look like for the most part. Hope you guys like how it’s coming along!

Lanard Steam-powered Revolver update photo


20120302-104010.jpg

Added some paint and installed some of the extra parts and brass tubing to test the fitting. It is getting there! Stay tuned..

Building some steam…


20120301-004129.jpg

So I had some parts sitting about and I decided to see if I could make a steam tank. This was just a fitting, but it’s looking just the way I envisioned it πŸ™‚ I think it will really be difficult to recognize this as a foam dart gun, when it’s complete. Thanks for having a look and feel free to subscribe for more stuff like this!

Another little squirt gun


20120229-012913.jpg

I thought this was coming along nicely. I’m digging that blue!

A quick sketch

Input appreciated, just know its rough and will be cleaned up before a prototype would be made. Thanks!
