Hey there, Cute tank.. you must have a Willy’s Jeep in your set of toys too. (I’m a big Jeep fan) If you haven’t seen it already, check out TimHart’s Fokker Plane kid’s swing. Best of luck with your new line of toys!

Really simple in design, but they look realistic. Quite an achievement. I like the camouflaged one the most. I don’t think you’ll have trouble selling these.

thanks Joe and Gerben! i like the camoflaged the most myself too :) i try to make them simple and sturdy, so they can handle play and all the other things children can think of ;)

Nice tank I have built a couple as well although I have gone more the WWII route.

I am saving this for future woodworking times with my grandkids. I like what you have done. I am worried though. If the flag staffs could be made out of something that flexes, like a foam or flexable plastic, mom won’t sue you when she steps on it some night on the way to the bathroom when junior leaves it on the floor and in the doorway, not that kids do that …
I have to make some of these. I have a silly nerf rocket that is fired from a plastic bellows and air pressure. I have been thinking of using the tank cannon as a launcher. Can you kind of see that? I don’t know, maybe the idea is dumb.

G’Day Spofeo, The tanks look good but I love the idea of having a nerf gun shooting mechanism in the barrel of the larger tank….wow I want to see that one. And yes the flexible aerials is a good idea. Cheers, crowie
