While I’m still trying to get back to emails, I am posting quite a lot on Instagram for anyone interested! As always, I can be reached directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for any commissions or other work inquiries. Thank you!
Hey guys! Sorry for the slow posting here lately, it’s been quite hectic in the shop and when that happens I tend to forget about posting up the results. Now that the convention season is over I will get back into my usual groove, I promise!
Today’s projects is the Rueful Axe from Skyrim, but with a few changes made mainly to the handle. The friend who requested this piece will be using it on the wall of his Viking-style “Great Hall”. We decided to make the handle longer to better balance the weight of that massive axe head and it also made the overall piece more substantial for displaying.
The blade was originally sculpted in clay by my pal Robert Righter. It was then moulded and cast with resin before the paint was applied. The handled is a combination of real wood and epoxy clay that was used to make the collar pieces as well as the ringed cap at the bottom.
Thanks for checking it out and please check back soon for more cool stuff. If you have a chance, also check out and subscribe to my Youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/johnsonarms) where I’ll be posting up videos of the finished projects as well as more tutorials and advice for those also interested in making props! Thank you!
Hello there! Welcome back for another installment of “what is Brian doing now??” It’s been a few weeks since the last update, so I’ll add some photos of works in progress as well as a few finished pieces. If you have any questions or wish to inquire about a commission, please send me an email at email@example.com. Thanks!
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!
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 😉
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!
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

A monster Nerf Longshot that I named “Frosty”. The Blue portions glow in the dark and especially under black light:)
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

I’m sorry for the lack of posting recently, it has been a busy time here at Johnson Arms, haha. I’ve been bad about taking photos, but I hope this edition will show that I’m trying to remedy this. I hope that some of the secret projects will be post-able soon, but until then, I’ve been trying to keep busy with private commissions. There’s probably going to be a duplicate in this posting, but I hope it will be the best quality version you’ve seen thus-far, hehe. Thank you as always for your interest and support in what I do. You guys make this a lot of fun, even when it’s a stress-facotry
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]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email]. I promise to get back to you as soon as I can
Hey Folks! Here’s a few of the projects getting wrapped up this week. There’s a few things needing that last 1%, but that shouldn’t keep ya from enjoying the photos
I’ve had a lot of inquiries about resin replicas this week and I thought I’d let it be known that I can get just about anything if you have the funds! If there’s anything you’ve been looking for, just shoot me an email and I’ll let you know if it’s possible. Thank you very much!
