Well it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything, but I’m back for the battle….. and I brought tanks! :)

Here are some small tanks I made for the kids this weekend. There’s still a few more to finish up, but you’ll get the idea with these. They are so fun to make, and the kids are all in love with them. I can’t wait to see all the battles these little guys will get into over the years. And already the boys have requested an air force to go along with them. So hopefully I’ll be able to oblige them :)

Hope you all enjoy!

Very cool stuff, I really like these tanks. Your kids are so lucky to have all of the toys that you make for them.

These are so nice and the plan is very creative. I also like the way that you have kept them on the small side because the kids can have more in the battle. You better watch out because they will probably want several battalions.

Spinning wheels and turrets? No wonder these are a blast.

Tanks and AA guns look excellent. Airplanes next? Battlefield Living room will be like Normandy on D day.
Yours kids are lucky.
