Metal Stuart R/C Tank

About: I am Kaptain Kool, Zombie Slayer, Covenent Crusher, and Creator of Awesomeness. I love building anything out of metal, wood, and trash. I build for fun and occasionally out of necessity.

Intro: Metal Stuart R/C Tank

Your driving around your r/c car on the table and are distracted, causing the inevitable fall. "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" you scream, but your beautiful, authenticated replica car's plastic shell breaks.  So you do what every DIYer would do, you take it apart and choose to build a new shell for your car, a better, even cooler one!  
This is the path that I chose, and after my Mark I Tank's success, I decided to build another tank.  It started off life as a Renault WWI tank (look at the treads) and then became a Stuart tank (turret and upper body).   It took a lot of work and much trial and error.  But in the end it worked.  After hours of toil and many spent rivets I was able to build one of the coolest things that I think that I have ever built!  Enjoy the video and pictures, thanks!
