Introduction: Tiny Motorized Tank!

This is a Tiny Tank that I made on a hot summer day! It can go over lots of stuff like carpet and grass. Recommended for beginners!

Step 1: You Will Need...

The k'nex you will need...
1 white snowflake(or black)
1 grey rod
4 small wheels
1 motor
3 tan connectors
31 blue rods
56 grey connectors

Step 2: The Hubcaps!

These go onto the tires and give it it's go-over-anything ability!(not really but you get the picture.)
Make the pattern like so...(right)

Step 3: Connect Them.

Together like so...

Step 4: Put the Wheels in There.

make two of these.

Step 5: Now for the Rod and the Tan Connector.

Stick the rod in the wheels and a a tan connector.

Step 6: The Gun!(does Not Fire)

Putting grey connectors on it to stop it from moving.

Step 8: Then the Battery Pack.

Step 9: Add the Other Wheel and Tan Connector.

Almost there!

Step 10: Put the Gun in the Hole.

good intsructable but i wouldnt call it a tank i would call it more like a M.G.(machine gun) on wheels

except its not a machine gun

pretty cool, i'm giving you a 4.5, and i'm trying to make a firing one also.

Cool. Even cooler if it shot stuff. But then that would be dangerous for your brother (and the army men.) Move out soldiers, we've been attacked by K'nex. MAN DOWN, MAN DOWN!!! +4/5 stars.

good job, i used to have a tank like this with the chain out of white rods and grey connectors. good job 4/5 (it's a bit to simple sorry)
