Tell me, but who can take a rod 3 mm thick stainless steel and
drilling a hole therein with a diameter of 2 mm. No, not across, and along
rod to a depth of 3 cm?! It’s hard, but you can? Okay. And if you take
in the same section bars 2 mm drill hole therein ideal
1 mm to 2 cm depth? cope?! All right. and if you have at the same time
there is not even an electric drill, and has only primitive hand
brace, which were in vogue in the late 70’s? No, I’m not bragging, I
just the same, too, can not! But I know a man who was doing
The first time, more than 30 years ago, Alexander Perfil’ev — so
name is the master — hamstring, machined by hand harvesting
miniature copies of weapons-grade Mauser bolt gun, drilled in
It longitudinal hole in the air, hand brace. In 1979, the
Ђleksandr to take the first exhibit for their future collections
miniature models of small arms. It was a tiny revolver.
At the same time in the work and it was the second model — the rifle
Mosin. That model, not models. That is, fully operational
mechanisms that have been copied from the actually existing weapons, reduced
4 -4.5 times. Peredrgivaesh shutter cartridge from the magazine raises
and goes into the barrel. Take off the fuse and pull the trigger.
Only the shot does not follow that because the cartridges themselves — it’s all the same
This, in truth jewelry work was complicated by the fact that Alexander
did not have at its disposal the present drawings of weapons. He sought out
diagrams and descriptions of devices, and many of the technical aspects had
think out the most and actually re-invent. But this is, in my
opinion, is more complicated than shoe a flea under a microscope or cut
silhouette of a Kalashnikov size of a needle’s eye. Especially if
consider that the master at that time there was no normal instrument.
In the 80’s in Chita buy is not something that an electric drill, and even a knife to
sausage cut preobresti a problem. So that there is a knife! Herself
sausage, and that was not to buy. Against this background, can somehow strange
Show, from where Alexander took such an exotic
hobbies. Alexander Perfil’ev comes from the village Mangut
Kyrinskogo district. In 1977 he graduated from the Buryat Institute of Agriculture
The farm and came Chita teaching profession mechanization
Marines in one of the colleges. However, for teaching
activities need to be relevant Zkorochki, and Alexander in 1979
went to Moscow for a second, teacher education. ќtot year
study, says Alexander himself, greatly influenced the formation of his
personality. He recalls with great respect teachers Moscow
Institute of Engineers of their agricultural production. Goryachkina, especially
instructor of the course of aesthetics and those of its hours of training, which she
conducted with students not just in the classroom, and at the Tretyakov
Every weekend A. Perfil’ev necessarily walked the exhibition halls.
Ridden a few times in Leningrad, in Yasnaya Polyana, in Tula itself. Namely
exhibits of the Museum of the Tula Arms Factory — miniature replicas of weapons
— And produced by the student Sasha is the most lasting impression. "A
because I, too, can do the same, or worse, "- he thought, and
begged curator book booklet of exposure.
In June 1980, all the "extra" people were asked to remove from Moscow to
the Olympics-80. Sasha returned to Chita. In addition to the booklet and
The inspiration he brought a set for carving, which buy
Chita — this one could not even dream of. Here it should be noted
that Alexander’s hands grow from childhood where necessary, he bad
draws from childhood all the time something carpentry work and his enthusiasm
Every Kind of crafts and applied arts have not after
tours of the Tretyakov Gallery, and long before the opportunity to get in the best
museums in the country. In short, returning home, Alexander took over
mosinskoy model Mauser rifles and using "a sledgehammer, crowbar and
a mother "(c) Needle and hand brace. At today
Alexander’s day in the collection of about fifty models made for
— So, it turns out that one model you expend seven or eight
MONTH — I ask Sasha. — By the way, in spite of the fact that the master
Today, 56 years old, looks very cheerful, fresh and somehow it does not go
magnification by my name. — Well, yes, we get about taky. Although,
I’m not fond of arms alone.
Alexander, as I said, is keen on carving, Permanent
something designs and even reinvent the wheel.
The first bike he designed in the ’80s, when a little boy (and at
Sasha‘s two of them) stopped going to stay in the yard. "Everyone rides a
mokiki, and I do not give. " — "There is nothing we are you such a device
gather that all of you will be running. " Two days were consumed in the garage
and some of the old parts and the parts assembled bike unusual
design, ka where you could sit in a car seat.
And in fact, not only the kids from the neighborhood envious, but also
adults curious Chinese market with neighboring asked: "Sell!"
Today, almost all models of Alexander Perfilieva can be seen in
two large windows in the central hall of the Trans-Baikal
Art Salon. Interestingly, many visitors ask:
"Can I buy?", And often want to buy again the Chinese.
In addition to the infantry models are exhibited, made by hands A.
Perfilieva miniature battle swords, axes and guns. Of guns in general
You can shoot at the present, if the charge of gunpowder and small
Alexander was very proud of the sword, tied in a knot. This symbol
"The end of war", he started a few times — to achieve aesthetics node.
High-alloy steel does not go to bed in a nice loop.
This is not the first exhibition of the master weapon miniatures. The work is always
arouse interest among the audience, and sometimes to their author treated
unexpected questions. Called the man, who gave police major
of the permit system, and asked:
— You are there weapons vystaviliY. The current? And you can see, in the hands of
— It is possible even to shoot, if patrons bring combat — joked Sasha.
— And what caliber?
— Two millimeter.
All models touch undesirable. One day the father of Alexander without
the knowledge of his son suffered a collection of work to show off to co-workers.
Guys his coarse fingers turned fuses, bent
shutters half modeleyY. Alexander the fingers too far
girlish, calloused hands, which is called — labor. It parses
Kalashnikov and it seems that the items are lost in the folds of his ladoneyY.
I’m personally not fond of guns, but I have a strong model
impressed: they are gem quality, precision and aesthetics can not be
leave no one indifferent spectators. Can you imagine how they
people react to contact
with the army and the more involved in the
On his first day at a street fair in the city in 1983,
Alexander says he has laid out on the table at the Theater Square
all 5-6 models. Around the miniature weapon, which was among the
"Kalash", spinning mostly boys:
— AH-Anka, and Kalash truth like?
— No, it is not so! And let dismantled.
— No, I can not, you will break or drop items
— And how to prove that real?! Ќe-e is not real!
1983 — it was the war in Afghanistan. The wounded Soviet soldiers
treated in all hospitals of the USSR, and also in Chita. Came up to the table
a young soldier in the form of series, with a stripe of injury. And also showed
interest in the "Kalash": "You can?".
— Here, — said Alex kid — now a soldier’s see if he
say that the present, believe? Man disassembled, assembled machine
put into place, then, with tears in his eyes reached into his pocket, pulled out
handful of sunflower seeds and held Sasha:
— Let your hands, brother
— Yes, I do not need your seeds!
— But I have much more there is nothing else!
All kinds of people hurt the soul perfilevskie work.
Alexander taught at the college, after labor in gold mining
the farm, restored church in. Dono Љalganskogo area
School training as a teacher of agricultural workers
economy. Then eleven years, led the design office
furniture factory, "Ant." There, in the trade department of the factory to stand showcase
with Sasha’s work. Customers come for the furniture stayed
at the window. Such a small, a permanent exhibition. "One day I come to the
Department, — says Alexander — and I’m talking guys movers:
"Substitute the two hands" and poured them into the second half a dozen medals
Domestic. ѓovorYat, came an elderly woman with her grandchildren,
watched smotrelaY then went away, came back an hour later and said:
"Tell Perfiliev. They had better prigodYatsYaI. Now I have these awards
I put in the window, along with the Order of my grandfather, who fought. Here
such a story. "
Yes, that’s the story transbaikalian Zlevshi. That’s the kind of person — Alexander Perfil’ev live in our city, and continues to
traditions of Russian craftsmen who can shoe a flea. And the exhibition
works by Alexander Perfilieva in art interior also continues.
