15 Self Made Tanks

Self Made Tanks

A guy from a small village located near Novosibirsk, Russia has a hobby. His hobby is to make full size models of old tanks. He makes only those models that were totally destroyed during the wars and no any other copy can be found in the whole word. So he takes the pictures and the old tank comes to life again. All of his models are full-sized and can move. They have engines, transmissions etc
from modern cars and can be driven, though they are not registered. Once he got a little tour across the neighborhood on his new example of a World War II tank. That made a lot of panics in the quite Siberian area - police arrived to see why the tanks entered the village. He says his dream is to built a full sized working model of an aircraft-carrier.

The white sparrow appeared among the sparrows in Minsk, Belarus. It has been said that white sparrows appear only once per 150 years. Some peoples of the world gave a great meaning to white sparrows. Native indians considered them something special. In old Russia such white
sparrows were called "dukes" and they were considered magic birds. They believed that if somebody would see a white sparrow he can cast a wish and it would become true soon. So we publish a pic of a white sparrow here - you can cast a wish now!

Old Russian New Year Tree Toys

political ideas: the Kremlin Towers, small copies of outstanding Soviet Sportsmen and different technological gadgets. Also there were often toys with portraits of comrades Lenin and Stalin. See yourself: That's an elefant studying ABC in cyrillics.
