« Part 1: one stop shop project and replacement tank Part 2 of planes, trains and vehicals? series Part 3: T2 is built and we are moving on to the air support. »

I finished cutting a little detail in the tracks with the BS and a dremmel. Then took some larger diameter dowel I have and made a hatch and as I was looking at the dowels decided the tank II needed a machine gun which is made out of some dowel and a piece of maple left over from a box. The wheels are glued and tomorrow will be put under and the tracks glued to the body. Then paint. I realize this is probably really small and most the lumberjocks on here could probably have this done in an hour or two heck probably even think a post on it’s construction is odd but my goal is to get better at this type of thing and enjoy feedback.

probably will have the completed project tomorrow!!

Hey, spending time in the shop is what its about. I made a piece of railroad track for my son… it took me a long time but my son loves it. The fact that the tanks are fun to play with just validates the quality of your toys:-)

That’s great Jacob, never too old to play with Tanks, especially one you built. The more you make the quicker they will go, at this pace you will have an entire fleet in a short amount of time.
