My seven year old son wanted to build a toy tank. I gave him a wheel and told him to draw a picture based on that. I should post the drawing too, we cut everything and glued together. His design, pallet wood, dowel, wheels.

Okay, that is definitely a very cool dad moment! Awesome job encouraging that kind of creativity and feeding it. Thanks for sharing and hope you guys had fun together in the process! :)

Thank you all. We did have fun and we have built cars, planes, boats and jeeps. But he designed this and that was cool. I built my sons there own workbench from a glue lam beam out of my old house. Some dog holes, clamps, peg board and they are set, though I might need to raise it up now that they are growing

What a great project you guys built! Looks like he came up with a good looking design, and the build looks well done!

Nice design. Those angles on front lines are very useful on close tank combat.
