Wooden Tank Evolution

2012 - 2015

The Development of my Wooden Tanks

Tank Timeline

All the tanks

My wooden tanks are all made from some old scrap wood and a few dowels. The first generation were a very basic and blocky design.

2nd Generation

1st Generation

My second generation introduced some sloped armour and upgraded guns.

I then got a bit more sophisticated and made a half track, fixed turret tank, an open turret tank, a flail tank and a bridge tank.

3rd Generation

Bridge tank

Flail tank

I used an elastic band to link the flail to the wheels so the flail spins as the tank drives along.

4th Generation

Next, I made some buildings, army trucks and field guns.

My lastest set of wooden tanks are modelled on some of my favourite real life tanks. I made a BRM-1, M3 and M4 Sherman, Russian T34 and the British FV430.

5th Generation

I actually made a whole fleet of T34's and M4 Shermans (both the original US version and the upgraded British version, the Sherman Firefly, with the bigger cannon).
