I kind of see their point, because those armored vehicles do not look armed, just armored.

I also wanted to say, these pictures are so close to my heart, I love those dilapidated brick buildings with bridge cranes, and dusty machines with peeling paint, burst pipes, etc.
I am doing some work in one right now in Chicago.

Yeah, lots of "character". I especially like the several inches of dirt on the concrete floor at Azov. (What's that all about?)

I do not think that there are several inches of dirt.

Call it "dirt and debris"? Lower left of 1st and 3rd pictures. I guess it's only 1/4" on the tank build floor, since we can still see expansion joints.
I got to thinking about it and decided that if they cleaned the place up and painted the machinery, the owner would probably double their rent. Otherwise, they seem well motivated.

I'm a student of Deming. Over-precision does not equal higher quality

"The good news is that there are many instances where looser tolerance may be perfectly acceptable. If a tolerance is tighter than you really need, you?ll end up paying for it. But by carefully considering the end use, where the part is going, and what the part needs to do before specifying a tight tolerance, you can distinguish between critical and non-critical tolerances, and minimizing your cost of quality."

The only metalworking in those photos is rusting or peeling leaded paint.

Why, they are up-armoring vehicles in that shop.

Where? I saw no pictures of people doing anything other than standing still for a photo next to piles of rubble.
There's nothing in the photos that any real work other than big talk is happening.

Do you really think the presence of the camera crew has no effect?

Effect on what? There's nothing going on in that place.

That's the effect!
The employees are probably all standing around behind the photographer and watching, maybe hoping to be called on to pose or regretting they didn't put on decent clothes that morning.
