What a narrow view. There are lots of reasons to do that - from mere hobby and participating in historical reconstructions to custom-designing it for some rich WWII stuff collector or selling it to a movie studio.

I believe that considering the overall scope and quality of the construction and the amount of people involved, they had a solid reason to build that tank.
Are you really that stupid you believe they build this for fun? It's for a movie studio in Russia called Mosfilm. This is the studio for making the greatest film in Russian history, War and Peace (1965). The film had over 120,000 cast members and if it was filmed today, it would cost over $700 million US. The believe in realism, not computer generated fantasy films.

Your posts are "a useless waste of time and resources".

@ easytodo

I find your life as a useless waste of time and resources. But I don't say it out loud.

Ow, wait.

@ orendadude

Yeah, those Shermans and T-34-85s sure showed those King Tigers and Panthers..yup..

Why not build one of the most effective tank in WW II? Ow, they did.

@ ChewOne

Maybe they meant Tiger Ausf. F. Pretty sure, they didn't though.

Thumbs up-ish for your remark.

actually.. i don't give a damn crap guys... I'm looking at some funny pictures around here, when I see something that inspires me to express an opinion, I express my own opinion. You may agree or not, I don't just juve a f**ing crap. Deal with it.

@ eawsytodo

Indeed, we're just expressing our own point of views. You have a tiny penis and are as useless as a toad in a horse race.

But, hey, it's just my opinion, don't get offended. Hypocrite.

...maybe if you moved out of your parents basement you might discover that people are actually doing useful things with their lives.... unlike your pathetic life, or lack of. You couldn't even put together a model of this tank let alone engineer and create a full-scale model as this, dickless.

Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.

Beautiful job!! WOW. Only in Russia. PS - to easytodo. The studio has built T-34 tanks. They're doing a movie about Stalingrad, not that idiotic one "Enemy At The Gates". They needed T-34 tanks, not to be had so they built them for the movie.

... He9 bien la mienne, de ptooin magique contre les soi-disant proble8mes insolvables: Une GROSSE feate, une BONNE cuite, un GRAND jour pour s'en remettre, et PAF une solution. Selon moi c'est comme pour le travail: Quand tu sais plus of9 t'en es, comment continuer, il faut juste laisser tomber, sortir la teate du guidon, prendre une fuse9e pour la lune, et regarder tout e7a de TRc8S haut. Et quand on n'arrive pas e0 faire de9coller sa fuse9e, l'alcool e0 outrance est un excellent combustible. Je sais, c'est mal ce que je dis, mais c'est MA ptooin magique e0 moi, hein, c'est tout.
