Introduction: Lego Anti-tank Gun (PaK 40)
Hello! This is my first Instructable. On this page, I will show you how to make a lego anti-tank gun. For this, you will need the pieces shown above. Sorry if the pictures are blurry or not there at all.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Wheel Platform
First, take the piece I have shown, and attach the two wheels. then, add a 2x2 brick on one end, and a 2x2 round brick on the other.
Step 2: Anti-skid Platform
Take the black piece shown and add the two holders onto the ends. They MUST be oriented properly. Then, take the spikes and slide the handles onto them, and attach them onto the holders, as shown. Finally, attach the anti-skid platform to the circular 2x2 brick, and a singlebrick onto the square 2x2.
Step 3: Ammunition Load Piece
Take the grey block with a hole in it, then insert a black stud. On the gun platform itself, attack a single piece, then put on the brick-and-stud.
Step 4: Barrel of the Gun, Side Armor
Take the long piece and attach it to the black stud. Then, attach the bottom of the black stud to the center of the laptop-shaped piece. on the back, add two studs, then the side piece, then a holder on each side. Add a swivel bit to each holder, a double holder on top, then attach to the chassis. Take the last two holders, put them on the 1x2, then attach to the barrel as shown.
Step 5: Extras
If you want to add more detail, take a black bar and attach it to chains as pictured. attach another double-holder and then add that to the back of the gun. For a flash suppresser, use a cone and attach the narrow end first.
Step 6: End
Congratulations! The final product should look like the picture above (pardon the black patch if any).
Step 7: Update + More Mods
For artillery shells (if you don't have any) take a lego goblet and stick the bottom of another cone piece, then add a spike through the hole in the top of the cone (same kind of cone piece as the one on the end of the barrel of the gun.)
