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)
it should look like this...(left)

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)

1 make this for later
2 and this
3 and but it in like so...

Step 7: Add the Motor.

on like this..
Putting grey connectors on it to stop it from moving.

Step 8: Then the Battery Pack.

is snaped on like this with grey connectors and the blue rods.

Step 9: Add the Other Wheel and Tan Connector.

Almost there!

Step 10: Put the Gun in the Hole.

just like this.

Step 11: Now Turn It on and Go Shoot Some Bad Guys.

TA-DA!!!!!!!
(BTW this was made for my little brother so that he would have something to run his army guys over with. lol.)

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.

Thanks dsman! It is really nice to get a review from someone who is so good at building like you. Now that I see how easy it is to make a Instructable (I always thought it would be hard) I will TOTALLY make more... (Maybe that uzi I am working on...)
