Sometimes you just need a hot rod tank on your desk, I understand, that's why I made this. This tank is perfect as a pen holder for any military buff or tank enthusiast. Besides that, its a really eye catching conversation piece.

I was thinking steam punk when I started this, but as I got into it, I found myself just wanting to make a streamline, mechanically sexy tank. Something like, if you were to drag race tanks, you'd see this roll up and just be like...O MAN.

Its made from 100% recycled metal
The main gear canon is a mis-machined industrial gear, and a gear shaft from a motorcycle transmission
The muffler is frankensteined from bits of a string trimmer muffler and some tired plumbing copper.
The tracks are old bike chain, bike seat post, and wrenches.

This is a solid sculpture with no moving parts.

This tank is raw metal so if intended for display outdoors, it will form a rust patina over time. If this look is not desired, I offer clear coating upon request, free of charge.

The tank weighs in at 6.8lbs
3 1/2" Tall
5 7/8" Wide, track to track
9 1/2" Deep, canon to exhaust pipes
