Steampunk MG Progress

Hey guys!

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! :)

Skyrim’s Rueful Axe themed replica finished!

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!

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!
