    Insignias are from shop catalogs. Gun barrel is made from dry felt-tip pen. I also used some pieces of wood.

    sipari, I really enjoy your "Trash-Tanks"! You are very creative in your sourcing and use of materials, and most artistic in the creation of these whimsical military creations. Thanks for showing us your work, and the "How-to-Do-It." Wish I could borrow your creative brains for "Trash-Trains"!!! Bob C.

    Wow, your tanks certainly are works of art! Thanks for sharing, and I hope you'll post more on this site.
    Also, I'm sure some people are willing to pay a hundred or so for those tanks if you need the extra cash sign1
    Keep up the good work!

    Egg carton turrets. Why have I never thought of this? I've done plenty of scratch-building, but it never occurred to me to do so...

    Oh the irony of turning an empty box of shells into a tank! sign1

    Very cool! Reminds me of why I got into this hobby in the first place; IDIC: Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations. :thumb:
