So here's the second Model Gun I had been delivered yesterday.
The "Taxi Driver" Tanaka S&W M29 8" HWABS.

The matte black finish was the last thing I'd want on such a revolver replica, but somehow, it grew on me lately to the point I bought it as soon as it was available. That said, I didn't had much choice as there is still NO metal finish Tanaka revolver in stock anywhere.

Some will despise the lack of pictures and flashy box art. I don't give a crap. I even like the seriousness it gives to the model.
It's not exactly a toy, but we're not kidding here anyways. The model speaks for itself.

The size, the weight, the accuracy and last but not least, the craftsmanship are outstanding.

Markings, logos etc, are all gracefully engraved.

Each part of the model is top notch and everything fits perfectly. No mold trace or whatsoever. I also collect guitars and I have the same feeling of high level japanese quality control in Tanaka brand than Ibanez guitars brand.

I'm really impressed by this model and will proabably focus on Tanaka Works production from now on.
