    Homemade tank.

    I have wanted a tank of my own since I was a kid. But they aren't that common and very expensive to buy. So I built my own.
    What ive noticed that I didn't expect was how much attention it draws. It does have the affect of intimidation lol.

    Did you build it from a blueprint or is it custom?

    Is it all metal or are there wood panels. I've seen tanks for paintball games that looked quite good but most where made of wood and used regular tires instead of tracks.

    Welcome to PF

    That would come in handy for my commute, what kinda MPG do you get.
    I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number please.

    How much did it cost to build?

    Welcome to the forum. I have a few questions.

    1. How long did this take?

    2. Is the shell steel, how thick, what's it weigh?

    3. What motor did you use?

    4. Does it have a working canon. If so, what caliber/size?

    5. What caliber is that front gun next to driver?

    6. Does your community know you have it, you keep it locked up?

    7. Did the DMV/Sheriff give you a tag for this vehicle? How's it registered?

    8. Is your Momma proud of you or what?!
    Everybody seems to have a right, but who has any responsibility?
