Project Updates and MEGACON 2013

Newsflash!

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!

Custom Nerf Strongarm

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!

Be Well,

Foam Melee Props

Hey guys!

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!

Lots of Props 1-13-13

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! johnsonarms76@gmail.com

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!

Steampunk Darth Vader Helmet almost finished!

Better photos to follow, but here’s the Vader helmet done up in brass! It’s a full sized two-part plastic shell, so I’m hoping it might get used for a full steampunk some day.

More photos to follow, I just had to get at least one photo out to share :)

Next phase will be SP Boba Fett! Hehe

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 :)

Moving Day 11-3-12

So the day has finally come to move into a more proper workspace! Here’s some photos of the chaos and a bit of the stuff I’ve collected over the years, a lot of which I forgot I had, haha.

Now that I have a much higher rent bill, expect to see us making a lot of use of the new room. If you’re ever in the neighborhood, feel free to make a trip over to see it in person! :)

HALO Carter Helmet Complete

Thanks to Tony Pagan, the Carter helmet is complete (He also did the sculpt and casting). This one is spoken for, but let me know if you have a helmet that needs painting or would like to purchase your own competed helmet. Thanks for visiting :)

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 :)

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!
