How to Build a Tank With a Cardboard Box




Introduction: How to Build a Tank With a Cardboard Box

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! 

Here's a video I made with this cardboard tank!! 

Step 1: Materials

Materials you will need:

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


- 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!

Here are the pictures of my finished tank for my kitten!

tank "nozzle" = "barrel"



Is there a pattern, anywhere, that can be printed?
If not, I may make this and create one.

the "tank nozzle" is actually called a tank gun

Well done! However, it would have been nice if you had provided more detailed instructions...

but it dose give me an idea for a design that i will make

I wonder how many people clicked this ibble just for the cute picture. I know I did!

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! ;)]

ur kitten looks like '' why am i doing this?'' soowe cute
