关于我(Sovietarmy2012) About me(Sovietarmy2012)

我是谁? 一个醉心于模型玩具仿真枪,汽枪,苏联军品的收藏者,一个微不足道的贫穷的产业工人。

我对生存游戏兴趣缺缺,亦甚少参予这种把胶珠子洒向别人的运动。我懂得基本的汽枪改装与维修,但我从不要求汽枪的火力性能,也极少用他们射击,只关注她们的外覌是否仿真与合法性。

与这星球上很多地方都一样的情况,我的国家中国,跟我所有的香港"特别"行政区,对真枪及相关零件管制都十分严格,事实胜于雄辩,社会的犯罪率确实减少,但这种剥夺潜在罪犯拥有枪支权利的同时,对枪械爱好者的自由也减少了。不过人是社会性动物,社会是由众人集体生活所构成,为了公众免于不必要的恐惧,枪械爱好者们的自由权利实在微不足道,绝对自由的争取,是绝对自私的表现,对社会是破坏性,甚至是反人类的。

基于我的兴趣、对禁枪政策的理解、个人立场和不丰裕的经济状况,我折衷地在个人与社会的矛盾之间取了一个平衡,把仿真军事玩具和汽枪外观作一个DIY改进。香港这个小城市由于众所周知的历史及地理位置的沿故,自由港的地位使之汇集世界各地的仿真军事玩具汽枪,地理上与主要生产地相邻,也是一个重要的仿真军事玩具及汽枪的中转地,因此我们可以以相对便宜的成本购买品种丰富的各种产品,我亦受益于这种氛围之中。

从多年的观察、购卖与收藏过程中,我获益甚多,亦对近年种种流行趋势渐生不满:

1. 玩具始终是玩具,但香港很多玩家们在这个禁枪之地,把玩具看待成真枪的心理投射,把自己的行位与定位特殊化,亦使商人们有机可乘。

2. 玩具始终是玩具,但商人们通过宣传比拟真枪的卖点,乘机哄抬价格谋取暴利,客观上使软汽枪界别贵族化。

3. 玩具始终是玩具,但香港很多玩家们在这个去工业化甚久的金融城市中,自以为玩具制程,成本与售价是合理,自寻借口,甘于接受。

4. 买方对真枪及现化工业制程一无所知,卖方则努力吹嘘这个真枪制作肥皂波,加上近年国外的靠授权商标淘利的商人和真枪公司对玩具市场垂涎,自然而至的便是汽枪价格上升,低价产品消失,低质产品中价化,高价产品价格虚高,市场发展扭曲,生存游戏运动步向衰败,这个因素的作用下,不认真乃至胡来的产品就应运而生,一般玩家为了提升所谓外观,就得花很多金钱去迎合他们想象中的,厂家吹嘘中的真实感。

我对上述观察到的情况持强烈的不满与批判态度,并且身体力行,透过记录改进玩具外观的制作过程,试图推行"DIY"运动,理念如下:

玩具始终是玩具,本质上是使人快乐而存在,不论儿童,还是成人。玩具是面向大众所能承受的价格去生产和出售,厂家应该尽力在设计和制造达至最佳效费比。

1. 玩具始终是玩具,不要过于沉迷,不要有不当的心理投射,别让玩具耗光銭财,别因沉迷他而影响周遭人们对你的观感,别因玩具而放弃人生的发展,选择与可能,亦别因此坐牢。

2. 玩具始终是玩具,玩具仿得再好也是一件玩具,真枪造得再不济也是一支真枪,如何看待追求玩具的真实感,取决于你心中的一把尺,而非别人的目光和说话来衡量。今天的互联网上有足够多所图片去提供给你参考,需要善用这项免费资源,去帮助你树立你的尺子,在不违法,可负担的情况下建立它。我的"DIY"系列文章正正是用行动去表达,不花什么钱,也可以做得不错的理念。

3. 在DIY的准备之时,通过搜集资料与考证,你会对该款枪械有更深更透彻的理解,当中的知识和体会是难以通过看文章视频和购卖玩具而得到。更可以覌察不同国家,不同设计/生产者在不同历史背景下透过不同思维与方法去解决让子弾打中目标的方法,这更是扩阔眼界的人生修行。

4.DIY的过程中,需要勇气去走出动手的第一歩,需要仔细的计划,需要不断增进的手艺,还有就是耐心和完成作品的坚持。这不就是一个对自身的修炼吗?

5. 商品有钱就可以买到,毫无技术与操作上的难度,但DIY的作品就不同,那是世上独一无二的,制作完成,不但旁人的惊叹,还有懂行之人的赞赏,重要的是自我的满足感。

 

犹记起当初开始迷上这个兴趣的时代,尽管市场上的枪支款式是如此的少,改装升级零件是如何地粗劣、稀少、昂贵,人们仍以大胆无畏的精神去自己动手改造并在过程得到快乐。相对于商品爆炸性增长的今天,人们在追逐物欲的过程中却难见笑脸,究竟玩具本质是否扭曲、人们初心不再,还是两者兼有之?就让我们透过DIY行动去重拾快乐吧!

About me (Sovietarmy2012)

Who am I? A collector of replica / model guns, air guns, soviet military products, but better known as a trivial and poor industrial worker.

I think little about survival games, and I rarely participate in this kind of sport that sprinkles plastic beads onto others. I possess the knowledge and skill to perform basic modification and maintenance of air guns, but I never chase after the firepower air guns, and seldom use them to shoot, my full attention fall into a faith replication in appearance and the legality of owning such replica.

The situation is the same as in many places on this planet. My country, China, and the "Special" Hong Kong Administrative Regions have strict controls on real guns and related parts. The fact is better speaks louder than words. The crime rate in society does decrease as a result of the control, but this deprivation of potential criminals' right to firearms also reduces the freedom of gun lovers. However, human beings are social animals, and society is composed of the collective life of everyone. In order to avoid unnecessary fear for the public, the freedom of firearms fans is insignificant. The fight for absolute freedom is a manifestation of absolute selfishness and is destructive to society, even anti-mankind.

Based on my interests, my understanding of the gun ban, my personal position, and less than favourable financial ability, I compromised for a balance between personal and social benefit, and only DIY to improve on the appearance of replica military toys and air guns. Due to its historical and geographical background, Hong Kong is a small but free trading city that became a transfer hub for military toy / air gun / replicas from all over the world. It is geographically adjacent to the main production facilities for these items, so we can buy a wide variety of products at a relatively accessible price. I benefit from this atmosphere.

From years of observation, purchase, trade and collection, I have benefited a lot, and I have become increasingly dissatisfied with various popular trends in recent years:

1. Toys are always toys, but many players in Hong Kong treat toys as a psychological projection of real guns, and their acts followed. This projected a twisted and unwelcomed image to the public.

2. Toys are always toys, but the businessmen senses the players thirst for the real stuff, quickly capitalises on it and market their toys as if they are the real deal and charges a premium for their products. This created aristocratic airsoft gun industry.

3. Toys are always toys, but many players in Hong Kong think that the toy manufacturing process, the cost and selling price are reasonable being brought up in this financial orientated city which had been de-industrialized long ago. They are willing to accept any excuses for their spending.

4. The buyer knows nothing about the real gun and the modern industrial processes, while the seller strives to create a fantasy that they are producing the toys with methods identical to the production of real guns. In addition, in recent years, foreign merchants and real gun companies also tapped into the toy market by either selling their trademarks. As a result, this raised the price of air guns, diminishes the of low-end products, low-quality products asking for mid-end price, and the falsely high prices of high-end products. This distorted market development, and declined the survival game demand. Under such influence, less than serious or even totally imaginary products were pushed onto the market, so to satisfy the player's demand to improve the so-called trendy appearance. Ordinary players have to spend a lot of money to cater for their imagination and the manufacturer’s boasting on realism.

I have a strong dissatisfaction and critical attitude towards the above observations, and I have tried to implement the "DIY" movement by recording the production process of improving the appearance of toys. The idea is as follows:

Toys are always toys, their existence is to provide happiness, for children or adults. Toys should be produced and sold at affordable prices. Manufacturers should try their best to achieve the best cost-effective ratio through design and manufacture processes.

1. Toys are always toys. Don’t be too obsessed with the improper psychological projection. Do n’t empty your pockets. Don’t let a toy affect people ’s perception on you. Don’t sacrifice your personal development and career because of toys. Like, don't go to jail for this.

 

2. A toy is always a toy. The most authentic looking replica is still as good as a toy. A poorly made real gun is still a real gun. You should have your own yard stick on what is realism but not be told by the others. There are enough pictures on the Internet today to provide you with reference to work on. You need to make good use of this free resources to help you establish your own yard stick on realism and build it without breaking the law at an affordable price. My "DIY" series of articles reflects this idea to show you that a concept could be achieved to a pretty high degree without breaking an arm and a leg.

3. During the preparation phase of the DIY, you will gain a deeper and more thorough understanding of this firearm whilst collecting information and research. The knowledge and experience in it are difficult to obtain by watching articles and videos and cannot be brought. It is also possible to observe different countries and different design / makers in different historical backgrounds through different ways of thinking and methods to figure out hoe to land that bullet onto a target. This is a life practice that broadens the horizon.

4. It takes courage to DIY, and to actually from something by your own hands. It requires careful planning, continuous improvement of craftsmanship, patience and persistence in order to complete the work. Isn't this inspirational?

5. The goods can be bought with money with no technical nor operational difficulties involved. But DIY works are different. The end product is unique and one-of-its-kind. It may amaze the crowd but also attracts the appreciation of those who knows about it. Most importantly, self-satisfaction.

I still remember the time when I became obsessed with this interest: although there were so few guns on the market, and how poorly, scarce, expensive the retrofitting and upgrading parts were, people still dare to do it by themselves with audacity, and gain their happiness from it. Compared with the explosive growth of commodities today, there are hardly smiling faces on people’s faces by pursuing material desires. Is that the nature of toys is distorted, or people start to lose their incentive, or both? Let us regain our joy through DIY!

 

关于义和制作About Sovinco

今天我有幸在此讲一下关于义和制作的开始,理念与经营方针。

义和制作的开始

义和制作的名字跟罗马一样不是一天而成的,这个名字是继承我青年时跟朋友创业而失败的公司名字,事虽过去,但犹有不忿,重用此名,永不言败。至于Sovinco这个名字和商标,包含我们对公司未来的期望和对七八十年代平面设计的致敬。

义和制作开始的一切于我来说是一个一个的偶然,渐渐发展成一个庞大的DIY计划,始于我在讨论区上的敌意攻击和背后捅刀,免费网上相册突然勒索式收费,开始有了个人DIY分享网页的念头,加上一个越洋而来的DIY问题求助,萌发出义和制作的建立。

义和制作的理念

承上我的自述,义和制作的理念是在我的思想上加上伙伴们的想法而逐渐清淅的。一个越洋而来的DIY问题求助,我们发现很多人明白并认同我的DIY理念,但是只对我示范过的其中一个项目有兴趣的人不在少数,他们常常问:应该从0开始去做吗?对没有手作经验又渴望拥有的人来说,DIY不是一个最合适去达至拥有该制品的方法。既然我可以亳无保留地分享制程与经验,何不再行个方便,复制一个给他们,如此思路之下,义和制作的诞生便是自然而至的思考结果。

升级成厂家的我们,承继自DIY运动精神,抱有对市场风气文化的不满,以为世界人民服务为任,不跟风不随众,竭尽全力制作非市场导向的产品,非一般功利的商业选择。马克思说过:以往的哲学家们只是解释世界,而问题在于改造世界。同理,我们花了不少编幅去解释世界,当下我们就是去透过制作,生产去改造世界。

义和制作的经营方针

1. 玩具就是玩具,产品上必须靠理念先进突围,力求在现有生产条件下达到质量和价格的最佳平衡。再精巧的玩具没人承担得起,也是失败。

2. 研发,生产,包装,销售,运输不假手于人,透过剥削自己去压低营运成本。

3. "从群众中来到群众中去",义和制作发展自我们亦是一个有机生命体,以平等的态度,与玩家们同行。

4. 不说废话空话,把宣传的金钱与时间成本压致最低,并转为搞好产品开发与生产。

5. 玩具要理念先进、便宜、设计好、品貭优良, 安全,环保,有教育意义,忠于历史!

6. 不挑战各国法律界缐,不冲击各国海关的管制边沿,义和制作寻求全球社会法规的最大公约数,背负上产品研发,生产,包装,销售,运输上的社会责任! 支持各国规定并对与各政府合作保持主动而开放的企业态度。也就是说,若有推翻现行社会规范与和谐的有歹念之人,别找我们哦!

7. 毛泽东说过:" 革命党嘛,以饿不死人为原则人没有饿死,就要做革命工作,就要奋斗。一万年以后,也要奋斗。"我们的营运方针,产品定价与营利利用亦是如此,不亏本,可持续发展,营利全部投放于生产升级与研发之上,饼子要靠造得多多,而非靠造得贵贵去生存下去。只有生存下去,才能奋斗至最后胜利。最后的胜利是属于革命的大多数人!

义和制作作为一个有机生命体,上述就是我们的宣言、我们的精神、我们的品格、我们的灵魂。致革命的敬礼!谢谢各位!

About Sovinco Replica

Today I am fortunate to talk about the beginning, philosophy and management policy of Sovinco Replica.

The beginning of Sovinco Replica production

The name of Sovinco Replica (SR, 义和制作) was not built in one day like Rome. This name was inherited from the company that failed when I started a business with friends when I was a youth. Although things have passed, I am still stuck with the failure. Reusing this name represents that I will never give up. As for the name and trademark of Sovinco, it contains our expectations for the company's future and a tribute to graphic design in the 1970s and 1980s.

The beginning of SR's production based on one coincidence which led to another. It gradually snow-balled into a huge DIY plan. It started off with my hostile attacks on the discussion forums , and the back stabbing that followed. Free online photo albums suddenly being monitiesed and asked for a premium. With the idea of ​​personal DIY sharing webpages, coupled with DIY ask for help questions from across the inter-web, the establishment of SR emerged.

SR production philosophy

The idea of ​​SR production became clear to me after brain storming with my partners and to my own concepts. A DIY question from the overseas’, made me learnt that there are many out there that agree with my DIY philosophies. Most of the time, people have shown interest on a single project that I demonstrated, and they often ask: Should I start from Zero? For those who have no hand-made experience and the strong will to do so, DIY is not the most suitable way to reach the end product in mind. Now that I can share the process and experience without reservation, why not make it even simpler and actually produce a copy for them. To this end, SP was born.

We, now from hobbist to manufacturer, inherit the spirit of the DIY movement, continue to be dissatisfied with the market culture, and am willing take on the responsibility of serving the people of the world. We do not follow the trend. We do not follow the crowd. We make every effort to produce non-market-oriented products and make non-utilitarian business choices. K. Marx once said: The philosophers in the past only explained the world, but the problem is to transform the world. In the same way, we have spent a lot of words trying to explain the world, and now we are going to change the world through products and production.

SR mission

1. Toys are toys. Products must rely on advanced ideas to break through and strive to achieve the best balance between quality and price under existing production conditions. No matter how delicate the toy is, if it’s unaffordable, it is a failure.

2. R & D, production, packaging, sales, and transportation not by the others. We reduce operating costs by exploiting ourselves.

3. "Of the people, by the people, for the people". SR production develops from us and but it also develop itself cos it’s organic. We treat players with an equal attitude and be side-by-side with them.

4. No nonsense. We minimize the cost and time of advertisement, and full-on with product development and production.

5. Toys must be advanced in concept, cheap, well-designed, good quality, safe, environmentally friendly, educational, and loyal to history!

6. We respect the laws of various countries, will induce no impact to the customs control of various countries. SR seeks the highest common factor with the laws of globe and their social regulations, shouldering social responsibilities in product research and development, production, packaging, sales, and transportation! We support the regulations of each country and maintain a proactive, open yet cooperative attitude towards working with governments. In other words, if there are people who are thinking about overthrowing the current social norms and harmony, don't look for us!

7. Mao Zedong said: "Well, the revolutionary party takes on the principle that they won’t strave anyone to death. When people do not starve, they are obliged to perform revolutionary work, and fight. We remain the fighting spirit even after ten thousand years.". Our operating policy, pricing and profits are manipulated following his direction. No capital loss, sustainable development, all profits are put back to production up-grades and R&D. It does not lose money and development. The product wins by volume, not value. Only by surviving can we fight to the final victory. The final victory belongs to the revoluting majority!

SR production, as an organic body, has the above declaration to make. Our spirit, our character, our soul. Salute to the revolution! Thank you!

关于吸血鬼工作室 About Vampire Workshop

义和制作很荣幸成为吸血鬼工作室旗下产品的总代理, 但本公司对吸血鬼工作室的了解确实不多,并且他们既低调亦懒于提供一些自我介绍。这是东方式鬼才的一些气节问题(或者称作通病)。

据我所知的是,他们是满怀理想,技术过硬,不谙交际,讨厌时下公关宣传的科幻模型界极客(Geeks) ,亦正因如此愤世疾俗, 才与我们臭味相投,进行跨界别式的战略合作,完全将其工作室产品销售与宣传交给我们处理。实不相瞒,这是一个缺乏利润的非理性行为,不过值得支持。

若阁下对吸血鬼工作室的产品及其它事情有任何意见,请发电邮与敝公司,我们会第一时间转告给这些害羞的老男孩。哈哈哈哈!

About Vampire Workshop

SR Production is honored to be the general agent for Vampire Studio, but we actually does not know much about Vampire Studio. They are both low-key and too lazy to provide any kind of self-introduction. These are some of the problems (or common problems) of Eastern talents.

As far as I know, they are full of ideologies, strong technology, not sociable, and hates the science fiction model Geeks that's being publicised. Fueled on this anger, they just like us and so decided to agree on a cross-over. With other types of strategic partners, SR handle the sales and promotion of their studio products solely. To be honest, this is an irrational act that might even be a profitless, but it is worth supporting.

If you have any comments about Vampire Studio's products and other things, please send an email to our company, and we will tell these shy old boys as soon as possible. Hahahaha!
