First saw this when it was posted on FTR a couple of weeks ago. It's a really good documentary, superbly shot, well edited and with a nice soundtrack.

The work these people are doing is outright heroic, it's a shame they don't have access to a fully-equipped maintenance workshop and have to improvise so much.

Give them a good pension (better than a medal), they deserve it !
Money will probably go to a producer making some movie, but surely not to those who made the job, as usual...
It's a shame to hear how poor support they are granted from their own country :/
Big Hurrah ! to the courageous men !

Well done! Very inspiring and valuable documentary. Cheers to the men brave enough to stand up for their passions!

 

I'm just wondering though, isn't 3200000 Rubles a lot of money? Google says it's like 63000 Euros. Money well deserved, I just don't understand why he is saying the salaries are too small.

This Belarusian film.
Belarussian rubles. 3200000Br = (3200000/13610) = 235,12 Eur

Aaah. I apologize, you are indeed correct. I presumed Russian Rubles (or at least similar order of magnitude) for some strange reason, which is unclear to me now. It should have been obvious.

 

Then I have to unpack my bags and get my CV back. :hiding:

Excellent camera work, incredibly well done. I hate "reality shows", but I would watch anything with those guys in it :)

Also I demand more cursing grandpa, he was a star! :)

That was a cool documentry and tank!

 

Too bad they didn't get better and more advanced equipment so to build the tank faster.

 

shame their government didn't support them as much but still awesome job.

 

i wonder what they will build next?

Well composed documentary.

 

Such dedicated professionals deserve a premium garage though.

Very impressive film...And a lot of grimy hard work I bet.

 

As for doing it with limited tools..well I guess T-34 are pretty simple to put back together (even if hard)...so I imagine what they had, is very similar to RL frontline field repair shop.

 

This is not the kind of work you can do with a robot..But a lot of hard work..a bit of bodging (hitting things with a hammer and praying it will fit) and fabrication.

I hope WG support these guys with some funds and equipment and perhaps some copies of those tank blueprints that the WG guys are so good at uncovering.

An enjoyable watch.:smile:

I like this idea, come on WG, spend some of your millions and help these guys out, maybe support another tank project with them?

They are rebuilding a [edited] 70 year old rust-bucket and they are turning it into a [edited] prince on tracks. What kind of modern equipment do you use on a [edited] restoration????

 

Please enlighten us?

 

Man seriously, you don't use 3d printers, CNC or lasers to fix up an old and forgotten chassis. You use sweat, cursing, some blood and a hammer. And you also need to love what you are doing.

Those guys have all they need.

And I really hope WG.net can support them financially on some future projects, they deserve anything they get and more.
