Destiny-inspired Nerf Crossbolt - Functional by JohnsonArms
Destiny-inspired Nerf Crossbolt - Functional
Here's the nearly finished custom blaster I've been working on.  It's not modeled after a specific gun from the game, just made to have a similar look.  I'll post better photos when it's all done :)

Halo 4 Scout Helmet Replica in Purple
Here's a grape flavored Halo 4 scout helmet that also came out really slick.  This photo was taken before a bit of weathering was done, but I know some of you guys like the clean look so here ya go, haha

Halo 4 Scout Helmet Replica by JohnsonArms
Halo 4 Scout Helmet Replica
Here's on the more recent Scout helmet paint jobs that I thought came out pretty nice.  Those stripes are a pain to get matched up, but the final result is worth it :)


If you're interested in those or another replica helmet, just let me know at johnsonarms76@gmail.com and I can get you a price to have one for your own trophy room!

Destiny inspired Thorn Hand Cannon Replica by JohnsonArms
Destiny inspired Thorn Hand Cannon Replica
6/11/15 - Updated photo!  The 'ol dA switcharoo.  lol


Here's one of the Thorn Hand Cannons that I've done on commission and I think this one might be up there with my favorite paint jobs.  I also added real leather for the grip and just a bit more weathering will be added before it's done.   This one got the royal treatment because it's going to be part of a fundraiser and I hope it will bring in some much-needed funds.   If you'd like one for your display case or cosplay costume, just let me know at Johnsonarms76@gmail.com and I'll get you started or answer any questions, thanks!


Edit:  Length of the replica is 14.2 inches or just over 36 centimeters.  It's a beast!:)

Thought it time for a re-write of all this after a year!


Thank you for visiting my page, I appreciate your interest in what I do. What do I do exactly? I'm not sure yet to be honest...but for the time being, I am a maker of custom props and painter of replicas. I work primarily in paint so what you see in the photos is all paint. There are a few times where this is not the case, but I generally point this out. I am seeing a bit of a move towards incorporating painted and non-painted parts to make a final product where you can't see where the real ends and the trickery begins, hehe.

I do work a lot with Nerf guns and those from similar brands. They're a blast and until I can afford the CNC machines, Ol' Brian has to work with what he can get his hands on. I do keep some functional when I don't have to muck around with the guts. Others are purely fantasy guns that look great with that insanely expensive HALO costume you just commissioned, heh. I also have a love for all things Steampunk and although my work would not show up at the definitive definition as such, I do feel they complement they style nicely and I'll strive to get better at making them.

So please have a look through my past year of playing Santa's helper. I hope you'll find something you enjoy and please feel free to contact me if you have something you need built to order. "If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time!" lol

All the best and thank you for you comments, support and friendship. You guys make it all worth while :)
