Cardboard Tank

Introduction: Cardboard Tank

Gather materials such as...

- Cardboard

- Scissors

- Hot Glue Gun

- Pencil/pen

- Ruler (I didn't have one in my photo)

Step 1: Cutting the Body

Step 1:

Cut 2 5x4 inch rectangles, then cut 2 4x1 inch rectangles, and last cut 2 5x1 inch Rectangles. This will be used to make the body of the tank.

Step 2: Glueing Together the Body of the Tank.

Step 2:

Next you should use your glue gun to make the body by glueing the matching strips to the matching side of one of the 5x4 Rectangles then glue the second on top It should look like the picture above.

Step 3: The Turret of the Tank

Step 3:

Make three 3x3 squares and cut two in half. Then do the same thing you did with the body and you then should turn it upside down and glue it on. There is your turret.

Step 4: The Treads

Step 4:

Now Cut two 5x1 rectangles and bend the tips so it looks like what i've done if you think it is too short you can make a 6x1 but I made it 5x1 after that glue it on.

Step 5: The Barrel

Step 5:

Time to make a barrel. You can make it any length but make sure you cut enough so you can roll it to get a barrel effect. One more optional thing is the armor and what I recommend for that is you make some small rectangles so they fit the side panels then cut a square that you can then shape into a circle using scissors.
