Does anyone know if the Type 14 Nambu pistol has been made in 1/6, and if so, where I could find one?
Right! The man had a knack for recreating great firearms, and a sense of tradition.I know this... Bill Ruger!
http://www.ebay.com/itm/GI-Joe-Hasbro-SOTW-Japanese-Imperial-Nambu-Pistol-Holster-/111223306661I thought it is worth mentioning.....although it pales to any of the pieces mentioned and shown here, I do believe Hasbro made the first 1:6 Nambu pistol for the G.I. Joe Action Soldiers of the World series in 1966-67....for the Japanese Imperial Soldier (#8101).
Sorry, no pics.....
Awww..... Most of his items are sold out. :brickwall All of his guns are damn epic!While I agree that the BBI, H&G, 3R, and DML versions are all fine pieces, the honour of the BEST Nambu has to go to Japanese miniature gunsmith Hiroshi Goto. He has made 2 different versions of the Nambu Type 14 and another of the Baby Nambu. However, with a price tag of around $400 each, these remain the choice of only the most discerning (and wealthy) collectors.
You can see his website HERE (in Japanese).
