HEAVY BOLTER-INSPIRED NERF VULCAN by JohnsonArms HEAVY BOLTER-INSPIRED NERF VULCAN by JohnsonArms
Here's a few photos from the longest running project I've ever had in my shop, haha. This was created in conjunction with a good friend in Australia for another good friend in Denmark. Logistical nightmare? Check! I'm really happy with how it turned out and now that it's on a plane somewhere over the Atlantic, I can breathe easy that it's in the safe hands of the United States Postal Service...hmm? Wassat? lol

Thanks for sticking through on this one and I hope you guys approve of the results because this was the only one we're ever going to make, haha

This is an awesome piece of art. A bit of constructive criticism though: This looks less like a heavy bolter and more like a boltgun (the rifle version of a bolt-pistol).

Thank you for the input!  Here's what was used as inspiration:



It may be the angle, but this thing is pretty huge.  Definitely not something you could one-hand like the boltgun.

I feel like this is the sort of project that probably isn't fully understood without a holding shot for size. In my head I know how big a Vulcan is and proportions tell me what size it's supposed to be but I can't help but see it as like 2 feet max. Either way, though, the thing looks excellently executed, if completely unwieldy.  :p

Thanks bud!   It's definitely a two-handed operation for any non-space marine sized human.  The overall length isn't much longer than a Vulcan, it's really more the girth of it.  The overall size is pretty imposing, but I think it will make for a great display piece after he throws out his back trying to one-arm it a few times, haha.

Sounds about right. ;) If he gets a full costume up, ask him if it's alright to link me to the pic, I wanna see this thing in action.

1. Amazing. - As a fan of WH40K and Space Hulk I approve. :)
2. It looks like an 80's boom box too, like you could just throw a Beastie Boys tape in there and rock out while your rocking out. :)

Haha, I'm glad you dig it, bud!  I really wanted to make the hardcore fans happy with this one :)

It does have a bit of a boom box look and now I feel like it should transform into a robot... lol

Damn that's amazing. If I could have anyone nerf gun from you, it'd probably be this one... Though my wallet probably wouldn't like me much for it seeing how it took so long, and looks like a huge amount of work went into it. Very well done!
