I am going to show you the steps of how I made my own tank out of a cardboard box, I made it for my little kitten, who can sit inside of it!

Materials you will need:

- A big cardboard box ( depending on the size you want the tank to be)
- Scissors
- Glue

Optional:

- Epoxy glue
- Pocket knife

Step 2: Cut the Parts and Building it!

Depending on the size, you are going to have to cut it to the size you want!
Here are some of the pictures I have of the shapes I cut and the steps to make it!

I built the tank nozzle (sorry not sure what it's called) in a triangular shape.

Step 3: Finished Tank!

Paint a kind of Tabby tiger print on it wth the kitten and make a copy of a King Tiger tank and it would all make sense [not to mention be very cute! ;)]

That's so cool!!
That's my new wall paper (the first one) :D
Now, if we could use thumbs-up on things here, that would be really cool! I would definitely thumbs-up this one, as many times as possible!!!
I'm a guy and I don't want to sound weird but the Kitten+Tank is pretty adorable.

this is just to awesome, it looks very easy to make after one try and looks very funny. Your instructable is also very good, who needs text if you have so many picture, you really bypassed the problem with allot of instructables for me, to much text and almost no photos, or some photos and no text, but not enough photos that show everything. This is just very fun and very cool, I really hope you win
good luck

Cool might have to make one... but it needs to house 15 pounds of fluff.

"I built the tank nozzle (sorry not sure what it's called) in a triangular shape."'
that would be the Turret...
The turret is the section that spins. The "tank nozzle" is called main gun. Other names: cannon, barrel

Cat war!!! Now it just needs a little helmet. *smirk*

That is the cuuuutest!!!
Using this instructable, I could have a whole army of cats in tanks! We have looked longingly at the commercial cardboard kitty tank, but $30 seemed awfully steep for a cardboard box.

Four paws up!
