Amphibious vehicle design N. M. Purtova. Doesn’t that sound nice, getting up early in the morning, roll the boat out of the garage, lay a tackle, get in, press the starter and… to take the highway directly to the river. And there go into the water and swim myself to favorite places to fish.

At school, for more than 40 years, engaged in the construction of various mechanisms to facilitate workplace and at home. (In the journal “Inventor and rationalizer” was placed in my article “power saw and pump”, which caused a lot of queries.)
(The end. Beginning at No. 10, 1973) In the tenth issue of the magazine, readers got acquainted with the General layout of the three-wheeled micro-car, only “Friendship” design Bykovskiy, G. Malinowski and B. Horev. Today we talk about refinement and alterations to the factory components and parts that have been applied in the construction of this interesting machine. Remember that to make their own does not make sense. Even with the appropriate machining equipment it will greatly increase the cost and complicate the work, not to mention the fact that the quality of parts made in primitive conditions, much lower than factory.

The interest of young technicians of our country to this machine was so great that many specially came to Moscow to the Exhibition of achievements of national economy of the USSR, where it was exhibited.
No one ever sought to do so, he was chasing passers-by and deliberately crushed them. But also special requirements, stipulating it is the safety of the car, there was very little. Most of them belonged to the lighting devices Projecting the remaining components and assemblies of the vehicle, the designers were free to think about anything: power, speed, carrying capacity and so on. Safety in calculation were not accepted: the problem, as it did not exist. And of course, speech could not be about the complex constructive activities, designed to perform only one function: to provide security.

Dream… How can she be the child? 1949. I am 5 years. Father Andrewski, the boy next door, buy somewhere a used pedal car (our industry at that time, in my opinion, not released), restores him, and the envy of all the boys of our yard this Andrei proudly unrolls it.
