HALO Suppressed SMG Replica Prop by JohnsonArms
HALO Suppressed SMG Replica Prop
This is a full resin replica so it has a good weight to it.  I made the suppressor removable for transport (it's held in with a large barrel neodymium magnet) and also for when you really want to blow your UNSC eardrums out! lol  It also sports an indexing stock and folding forward grip!

Custom Tactical Nerf Recon M4 Carbine by JohnsonArms
Custom Tactical Nerf Recon M4 Carbine
This was a commission for an adult, but I still added an orange tip after the photos were taken!  It was built using the Nerf Recon base with a bunch of parts from an M4 airsoft (with a ton of modifications, lol).  It still functions like new even though it's main purpose is to hang on a wall :)

Star Wars TFA F-11 Blaster Replica WIP by JohnsonArms
Star Wars TFA F-11 Blaster Replica WIP
Here's a progress shot of a F-11 Stormtrooper blaster that I was commissioned to prep and paint.  It's not quite done, but I owe you guys some new photos after my hiatus, so here you go! (Sorry it was a cellphone photo at night..never a good combo).  The final photo will be a lot better, I promise! :)

All resin kit with LED lighting behind the grills in a few spots.  Really an epic piece that I think is damn near identical to the original.  

Kit courtesy of my fellow Stony Props member, Justin Branfuhr!

Custom Weyland Corp Nerf Rapidstrike
Here's a custom Rapidstrike I did last year because the shape was so similar to the M41a Pulse Rifle!  I hope you guys like how it turned out!

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 :)

I honestly do the most business directly by email, but Etsy is my backup for a few things that seem to get ordered more often!  :)
