GAZ M21 "Volga" Taxi (1958) - Altaya/IXO

        Fiind o masina comuna, mare si rezistenta, GAZ M21 "Volga", a fost, bineinteles, folosita si ca Taxi, chiar si in Romania.
        Macheta este produsa de IST sau IXO (cam acelasi lucru) pt Altaya si DeAgostini si face parte din colectia "Taxiurile lumii". Decal-urile de pe macheta sunt conforme cu realitatea dar placuta cu "Taxi" asa de mare nu a fost prea comuna. Macheta este evident realizata pe aceasi matrita ca cea care am prezentat-o la nr. 9 dar are mici diferente. Rotile sunt alt model si sunt "cromate". Masca fata este acelasi model, dar Taxi-ul nu are evidentiate gaurile (cu vopsea). Vopseaua este aplicata cam subtire, pe la muchii se cam vede metalul. Sigla in fata nu este asa clara iar stopurile sunt doar vopsite. La interior nu exista decat detaliile de baza. Per ansamblu este mai slab realizata decat modelul facut pt colectia de comuniste de la DeAgostini.

GAZ M21 "Volga" Taxi (1958) - Altaya/IXO

         Being a common, big and tough car, GAZ M21 "Volga", was also used as a Taxi, even in Romania
         The scale model is produced by IST or IXO (almost the same thing) for Altaya and DeAgostini, and it belongs from the "Taxis of the world' collection. The applied decals are like the real ones, but the "Taxi"plate was not very common in this size (so big). The model is made, obviously, with the same mould as the Volga I presented before, but it has some small differences. The wheel are different model, and are chromed. The front grille is identical but the Taxi does not have the painted black holes. The paint layer is thin, so the metal is visible at some edges. The front badge is not very readable and the backlights are painted. At the interior, there are only the basic details. I consider this model worse than the one made for DeAgostini, for the communist cars.
