Custom Mass Effect-inspired Energy Pistol by JohnsonArms Custom Mass Effect-inspired Energy Pistol by JohnsonArms
Here's a custom painted toy gun that I felt had a very Mass Effect feel to it. The masking was a nightmare, but I hope you guys like how it came out :)

This one is available and may possibly end up on my ebay or Etsy stores if I get the energy to make a listing, hehe. If you're interested, feel free to shoot me an email at johnsonarms76@gmail.com. Thanks!

Nice work!  I just picked one up myself.  Any tips?  What kind of paint do you use?  Can or airbrush?

You'll need vinyl dye spray for the rubbery part.  I used rattle cans for this one, but the detail are all hand painted.  Glad you got one and I wish you luck!

Great shading and painting! It looks like a GLOCK had a kid with a nail gun to create an amazing prop!

It's the Battle-Kata made by Hasbro.  It is sold under their GI Joe license and I think they should still be available in stores like Toys R Us :)

Oh man....why don't they have cool toys like that in the UK?! I'd LOVE to have a go at one.

Sorry to hear that, Tom!  I noticed they're not making them available to the UK or Australia.  Might be the hidden knife blade that is normally at the bottom of where you'd expect the magazine to be.

They're in my garden and they've stomped the turnips flat!!  lol   I really appreciate the kind words and I hope with the year anniversary of your accident recovery that you're back to the marathons.   Awesome work as well on the knives, I have no doubt you're making Mr. Detloff proud.  My Dad's always been a sucker for cool Damascus steel knives and he gets a kick out of seeing your work as well :)

Hey thanks a ton for all the well wishes!  Sorry to hear about your turnips, but I can understand the mania.  Your work looks so believable and solid.  Are those pieces Heavy?  They look Super Heavy!  Keep up the great work!

:iconjohnsonarms:
JohnsonArms Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Very welcome!   

The weight of each piece really depends on what it's purpose is to be honest.  I will weigh down the props if there's room for led sinkers or whatever I have in the shop (also bits of rebar).  I'm glad that they look heavy regardless, that means I'm doing my job correctly with the paintwork :)

It looks like the lower receiver of a Kriss Super V slapped with the upper slide of Glock. Interesting. I like it :)

Very cool gun great paint job. Looks like the designers down sized a KRISS Vector SMG gun into a pistol. I like there thinking lol. Do you think you could convert one of these into a full scale Vector?
