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.

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?
Reply

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!

maybe put them together as well, use the longshot body and add the recons barrel or somethin.

also, there is a group you are in, nerf modders, and I tryed to join, but it said they weren't accepting new admins, but I saw nowhere to choose "member"

JohnsonArms Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
I'm not sure how they have it set, but I had a similar issue when I signed up. I'm not a paid member so I had to take myself off a group as an admin to join them. Wish I knew how to help, sorry bud!

Good idea on the extra parts too!

Nice! I like the Recon/Longstrike barrel/Raider stock combo as well. I have the same set up (plus the Longstrike sights), but as of yet it is unpainted.

Can't wait to see how this turns out, though i think you'll find the stock is from a Shotblast or Tornado Strike :P Great work so far mate

I was thinking the same thing after I posted this :) I have a bunch of both and just usually refer to it as a raider, hehe. Really glad you like it and I'll try to get this finished up in the next few days!

DrDisco777 Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Although there is no way for me to prove this, I have a hunch that the stock is from one of the shotblasts you bought from Ross with that sweet scope it sometimes comes with.

Correct! I didn't know about the subtle design difference when I grabbed it from the parts bin. Being blue didn't help me much either! ;)

Awesome rifle. The pistol looks a little bulky.
Reply
:iconjohnsonarms:
JohnsonArms Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thank you! The pistol is actuallt pretty thin, but ya, it's just what the guy requested. I personally like to remove the ring off the rear of the handle. Just needs a bit of filler to cover up the space left beind. :)

The rifle, on the other hand, is a fun side project that I wanted to try out. Might be adding dual mags or a dual 35rd drum setup just for the photos :) It should look beastly!
