No, the headline is not a hoax. And not even the “joint work of members Kota, led by a talented teacher and organizer of technical creativity of rural children”. It is a workable mini-tractor is really created (and after extensive field testing has sent explanatory material about their design in the journal “modelist-Konstruktor”) 16-year-old Sretensky guy — Andrey Bobkov.
Multi-page description of a homemade machine-a helper is almost required edit processing. Slightly more complicated was the case with sketches. In a letter to the editor, the author asked to apologize for possible inaccuracies, inconsistencies with the generally accepted rules (with drawing, he says, he “not quite good”). I had something to help. The result is a material, which we offer to our readers.
Like many, I am a constant subscriber “Model construction”. It is not surprising that ideas, technical solutions, published in the journal, sunk into the soul. And then, complete with its own considerations, the advice of experienced farmers, they are embodied in real design “Yaroslavets”.
Mini tractor turned, that is, on all hundred! But send material about him, not in order to become “famous”. No, I just want to show what can (and should) do in their 15-16 years, if the family budget does not allow to buy even domestic walk-behind tractor MTZ-0,5, not to mention the acquisition of the Japanese miracle technology of the type “breath of Kubota’s artistry”.
On the creation of mini-tractor (MT) took almost two years. Of them half the time “ate” the choice of design, wanted a more or less suitable engine, other complex assemblies of parts, their arrangement… Came sometimes to despair and not to send it all somewhere far away! But then intervened some inner voice saying, what are you a wimp, home state has requested! And the mother (live without a father) has inspired the neighbors did not shrink back.
