I stumbled across Komatsu Factory from his custom Multicam samurai armor (shown below). While looking for more information about the custom Cordura armor, I discovered a treasure trove. Komatsu had documented some of the build of this custom sewn armor along with an amazing body of work in wooden gun replicas.
Did you see the FN SCAR MK20 in the photos above? That isn’t airsoft. It is made of wood! Take a look at the photos below.
Upon closer inspection you can see it was hand carved and shaped.
The level of detail Komatsu puts into these models is astounding.
FN SCAR17. The details of this wooden replica gun is pretty good. Although the “Ugg Boot” stock is a little off.
But he did not stop there: Check out this Fabrykabroni MSBS.
Here is his S&W M&P Shield. There is a certain amazement and yet there are small details he is missing. Such as the lack of slide serrations and markings.
VSS Vintorez anyone?
Yes he even made a Barrett .50BMG.
HK416 with what looks like a Magpul UBR stock
I don’t know if Komatsu is selling off these wooden replicas. I have sent him a message and I’m waiting for a reply. In the ‘about’ section of his Facebook page he claims that he is a sophomore in high school. The Facebook page is relatively new and appears to have been created earlier this year. Compared to the other wooden replica guns, Komatsu’s creations hold their own. Splinter-Sell’s guns look like they are laser cut sheets of wood built up into the shape of a gun. Whereas Komatsu’s guns look like they were carved out of solid blocks of wood. There are some details that are a little off or missing, but that is just me trying to find faults in these works of art. I would be happy to own one of these and put it on display. Check out Komatsu Factory Facebook page for more info.
