So let me set this one up my father after seeing a couple of my projects and hearing a hair brained plan to make a scaled down tank ran by a lawnmower engine decided he wanted a toy tank to sit on a shelf in his house. I assumed that he wanted one that looked realistic and involved, I was informed Sunday that no he wanted a throw back toy like when he was a kid, after sketching out his idea I today put this together.
As with many of my projects the body, turret (which moves), and tracks are all 3/4 pine. The tracks have a slit cut in them where I put wheel in with a dowel. stained it green after a sad attempt at making a star with the ol dremmel. The wheels are just a dowel cut a 1/16 thick.
Dad wanted it stained I honestly think I liked it more simple and a natural wood color.
