Turtle Tank by nosurprises Turtle Tank by nosurprises
About 12" high, 12" long
steel, iron, oak
fabrication, casting, welding, faux finishing

Started off as a joke, turned into a serious assignment. I made the turtle and tank tracks out of wax, and cast them in iron. The shell was originally an oak stump I cut and ground down and stained. The turret is welded steel and pipe. This thing is much nicer in person. I don't believe I'm done with it yet. The turrent needs a square-ish air vent on either side to balance it with the width of the shell. I plan to also make the underbelly out of sheet steel as well. Enjoy

awesome concept. Tanks and turtles really are similar. Push them on their backs and they are both screwed
