    A tank thingy

    Hi

    I played hooky on Friday and banged this thing out in about six hours. I was going for speed and trying to keep it loose, so I didn't bother putting in working joints or rotating wheels and treads.

    Its made from transmission parts, threaded rod, T-nuts, electrical conduit, plumbing fittings and a couple of propane tanks.

    Oh yeah, the first shot is a shameless ripoff of an illustration by the Great God Shaun Tan, from his book "The Rabbits"

    Regards
    Andrew

    Great stuff. Six hours is pretty fast. Love the gears of the treads. And love the Treads.

    Yes, the tank is a bit heavy. It's about 15 inches long and weighs about 35 lbs. (16 kg.)
