Longshot Sniper Conversion WIP by JohnsonArms Longshot Sniper Conversion WIP by JohnsonArms
Just about done, just had to give it some more drying time. Not the most original of designs (It's very similar to one done by meandmunch although I was trying my best not to be exact), but it just worked for the person requesting that design. Now I just need to add a bi-pod and we're rockin! :)

What did you use for the silencer on this? Looks authentic!

I do. It's called bulldog. It's a durable sealant that can protect paint. Good luck!

Thanks! It's all done and sold as of yesterday, but I'm going to get some good photos before it ships out on Monday. I may have another similar gun about to be commissioned, so I'm looking forward to sharing that one in a few weeks :)

Loving that scope, really sells the sniper build. Love the mix of parts and the color!

Thank you! I am amazed by your paper figures, by the way. Do you sell them?

BuildMyPaperHeart Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I haven't sold any yet. That might change but I'm not sure. I don't sell any of the ones I make for myself (the originals, anyway); however, if you ask or want a specific character, I could make it for you.

Still unsure about the selling thing. I might, but it's more or less a time thing. I've got college to juggle along with my hobby and I don't want to keep people waiting when there's money on the line. Plus I've got a few projects in the works already and I don't like having a bunch of them in progress at once XD

But if none of that's a real issue I'd be happy to hear what you would request!

Well, would you be inclined at all to swap for a custom pistol of some description? That would keep away the anxiety of the cash thing, hehe. I don't know the time involved in making those little guys but I hope my offer wouldn't be insulting. I think a minature "Link" would be just about the coolest thing, but so would a little HALO figure :)

O.o woah! That is a... really generous offer! XD I will definitely put that project on the list then, but it could take a while seeing as I have a queue of sorts now XD

But that offer is not at all insulting XD That is really awesome! I'd love to make that swap sometime, but maybe not now :) Hope that's okay! I'll let you know once I finish the other projects and after I've talked to some people :)

That is an open invite with no expiration date :) believe me, I know about those queues and I'm just really glad to hear you're getting a lot of requests. Take your time, I'm not planning on going anywhere, hehe.

When I read Longshot I expected something from Gears of War. I wonder how you'd pull stuff from that typical genre of fantasy off...

It does, but without the skinny barrel portion. The silencer blocks it

Aw. A pity it would have been awesome it it could fire with the silencer. :P Ah well, great work all the same. :D

Wow, looks like either an XP8 or some kind of T'au weapon from Wh40k.

Brilliant work man, I wish my guns were as awesome as this...

My favourite AK model is in MW2, because that gun has sand colored plasic-handle. Looks rad!
