Tactical Nerf Hybrid WIP 1 by JohnsonArms Tactical Nerf Hybrid WIP 1 by JohnsonArms
Not a great photo, but it will do for the purposes intended, I think :) This is a Nerf Recon body with a shortened Longstrike front barrell. The stock is off a Raider and the scope not showing is from a set that includes the Element, sold at TRU. I'm sure it's been part of other sets, I just haven't seen them since I started making these! Anyways, let me know if you'd be interested in this one or something similar, I'd love to help ya out.

Oh, the little pistol is a Sharpshot, painted in the same colorscheme. It just needs the weathering on the OD green and it's ready to go as well :)

The shortened Longstrike barrel is awesome. Even if I don't paint mine, I might just have to do that anyways.

Feel free to do that, I'm sure I wasn't the first. I'd just never seen it like that and thought it worked well for the length of the over-all gun. Glad you dig it!

I just love that Rifle :O

Nerf should start selling them like this already instead of the horrendous blue/orange paint :P

Thank you very much. It will be available very soon if you like it more than a bit ;) NERF would be sued off the planet if they did...I'm very happy about that. I don't need to go head-to-head with Nerf, hehe.

Simple yet badass. 8-)

Thanks for checking out my stuff! Ya, this will stay pretty "real" looking, but I still need to add the metal finish on some parts and add weathering to the OD areas. Should have it done this weekend :)

Wow, these look amazing. If I may ask, what paint brands do you use?
JohnsonArms Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thanks! I use every brand of spray paint, they all work fine for their respective purposes. For the detail work I use a lot of Testor Master Modeler paints. I also use Humbrol and a few others that specialize in military colors that work well for what I paint the most.

I hope that steers ya in the right direction!
