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!
Here’s a project I’ve been working on for a while now and it’s finally far enough along to show some progress It’s built off of a Nerf Vucan with a lot of fabricated and found parts. I hope you guys will approve and I look forward to showing you folks the finished product soon!
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 wanted to share the latest prop build here at Johnson Arms. After seeing the new film Elysium and looking through the “Art of” book, I was possed with the idea pf building my very own Chemrail replica. It just so happens that the new Nerf Centurion is 39in long and exactly the same as the prop used in the film. This was obviously fate taunting me and I fell for it
Below is the result of a two day, 30 hour speed build. There are elements I wished to include, but could not include unfortunately. I hope you will see past these issues and still enjoy the results. I give all my thanks to the artists at WETA who made the original and get a kick out of seeing it in Nerfy form, haha.
Thanks for visiting and please don’t be a stranger!
Johnson Arms Replicas and Props
Hey Folks! I wanted to share some of the new custom pieces that I’ve been working on, I hope you will enjoy them There is quite a backlog of photos to upload so I’ll try to get after posting them all as soon as I can!
If you are interested in your own Johnson Arms piece, please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
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.
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!
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!
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!
