Wow! I just finished the Sherman Tank and Carrier. It took a while, I was gone for a month, but got her done. This was a huge project. I made my own wheels and used 2X4’s for the big chunks.  I used every saw I had and the table saw got a lot of work. I can’t say this is my most favorite project but I wasn’t so bad. Nest I am going to start the VW Hippie Bus & Beach Trailer which looks like real fun.

 

Thanks for lookin’

Great work on the Tank and Carrier Bill.

Would love to see your VW Hippie bus. I am hoping to tackle this over the xmas break.

Cheers

Thanks for all the good comments.

Rod, I just started my Hippie van and will be a while. It has gotten too cold for the barn here so I'll have to work when it warms up a little, we are fortunate to not have the cold for very long at a time here in south Tennessee.

Very nicely done.

I was curious if anyone has played with doing a camouflage type of paint job. 

These tanks and other toys would look great I bet ...
Thanks for sharing
