So I built the sled yesterday and then of course had to build a box today. I had purchased a piece of hard maple that the lumber store had at a reduced price as it was a foot and half chunk, I got it for the whole reason of playing around making a box or two out of it. The box is 3” tall and about 2 1/2’ squared at the base.
The tank is the first of a series of vehicles that my father wants built to remind him of when he was a kid. It is a redesign from a tank I made a couple months ago. changes or lessons learned from the first tank 1. I wanted the body both longer and not flat, the body overall it an inch longer and have an angled front and back as well as being a 1/2 in wider. 2. I failed on the wheels so this time I just purchased some from a hobby store sorry. 3. It will be painted and not stained, probably od green.
Things I liked from the first tank and will keep, the turret shape as well as the way I did the tracks.
