Brass Handled Colt 1911 Prop - all plastic by JohnsonArms Brass Handled Colt 1911 Prop - all plastic by JohnsonArms
Not everything is super flashy, such as this humble plastic airsoft pistol. I added the brass looking grips to see how they look and I like the contrast with the darkness of the gun itself. More work to do, but here it is to hopefully enjoy as-is :)

Most of what I do starts or becomes a commission. It keeps the light on so please let me know if you have an idea you'd like me to attempt to bring into the world :)

Feel free to follow my projects on Facebook: [link]

My Blog has neat stuff too - lots of photos that don't end up here on dA! [link]

Also, feel free to check out what I currently have offered in my Etsy store. If you don't see something listed, I can get it for ya! :) [link]

Nice work! An old friend! You should attempt to get in touch with some people in the silver-screen business, get paid to make props for movies! (example the Morita Rifle from Starship Troopers.) I love the Brass-colored grips, my thoughts, "brass" the trigger and hammer. But that's just my thoughts... Still, all and all a great work of art! It's a good representation of what my GTS Blue and Black 1911 will look like in a year or so... Minus the brass grips of course!

I bet it's there inside you, I just have a lot of hours behind any specail ability to make something used and abused :) I als enjoy trying to top what I did before so it keeps me practicing in hopes of always improving. Some day my eyes and hands will not be as sharp and steady, so I better figure it all out ASAP :)

I have that exact same pistol! I spray painted it silver and then sponged black acrylic paint to give it a tarnished look. But how do make it weathered like that around the edges?

30 years of using it as an assassin! Oh, ok it's actually more of a drybrushing :) Do you have any pictures of the gun you did? I'd enjoy seeing it if so

I would have posted it to him on the comments I want to see it too! Seeing as we all have the same airsoft pistol...

Very stylish!
Looks almost like the signature piece of some shady detective :)
