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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
She’s cute, but watch out. She knows how to use that thing!
Weathered up this scout and decided to try out my new rubber coating. It’s designed for dipping so applying with a brush was a bit tricky. After a few tries I think it came out cool and properly weathered to match the rest of the gun. It feels good too, like there’s actually something other thank plastic in your hand
Just a few more small details and it’s ready to ship out to its new Spartan owner!
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.
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

You guys and gals make this all worth it. I don’t have the money to advertise, but through your awesome sharing I’m seeing more new faces, faster, than ever before. I wish I could thank you all individually, but one problem is I don’t speak all those languages, and two, I’m not sure I’d live long enough to write all those emails Thanks for chacking out my hobby here and I’ll be forever in you debt…debts..manI should have paid more attention in English class *grin*
