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!

HALO style Nerf Praxis and Element

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! (Those in the US, of course, but we can all take a day to give thanks for what he have, ay?)

I’m working on a lot of new stuff, but here’s a few photos to give you guys a look. Let me know what you think!

Mass Effect Maverick Almost done – Steampunk Lanard X8 and more

Yes, back on the computer where I can do a proper update..ok, proper for me anyways..hehe.   Some of these will be familiar, but I got photos with the DSLR this time :) I’ll be on vacation next week so I’m hoping to get a lot done and actually do some spring cleaning…in the fall. Yep. Hehe

Kind of Blase Runner inspired, but not after any particular gun. Borrowed the slide for the photo, but the final one will look more like the body..I think.. Lousy iP4 photo..come on 4S!!

Working on a Mass Effect themed Vigilon. It’s further along by quite a bit, but this was the last photo :)

It got some white shoes! Almost done

More of a prop, but with the skinny barrel removed it will still shoot darts! Scope is a stand-in for the LS scope to be used in the final version

Custom NERF Vigilon gets some paint and Jayne’s Vera gets some character!

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. :)

Custom Nerf Vortex Vigilon in the works!

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*
