Oh, in that case, just use pictures of any real world tank you fancy. If you want to start simple, I recommend the S-Tank; it doesn't have a turret.

First, what is an Airtank?
Second, what type of tank are you looking for (MBT, Light, Recon?)
Third, isn't a full scale tank kind of expensive?

What you mean "We" Saintboy?











BTW, the Wargo, we have two like that now. Working on gun turrets for each.

Hehe, got to love the Wargo. But seriously, there's a decent amount of cash involved in this. Argos are not cheap, neither are hovercraft or ATVs.

well we were planning on making it a armoured support tank. it would only hold a driver and a gunner it would look kinda like a cross of a WWII german half track in the body and a canadian G-wagon really. when we start work on the tank and have some drawings i'll post'em and you can see what i'm talking about.

don't use a Gator, try to find one of those Polaris Rangers. They're built higher and already have a roll bar to secure your armor plating too. Aswell if your going for the "Half track" look. The Roll cage is around the two seats in the front where the cargo space in the back is open, so you could weld on a couple bars and use some tarping and cover it.

The problem with the Gator is that there is no real solid body for you to build off of. Aslo because the box has a lift on it, you'd have to build the for and after parts seperate.


My Uncle bought one of each for the Golf Course he recently built ((White Tail Golf Course out in Eganville)). He'd told me that the Ranger out performned the Gator in ever respect save for the Gator had more pulling power. The Gator is also more prone to getting bogged down in the mud because its so low. He also told me that the Ranger was cheaper to buy then the Gator and was better on fuel.

Hello, I was reading your thread and I just wanted to say that I'm saving my cash at the moment to take on a tank project of my own. I've got plans on the table of taking a skuzy old taylor/dunn model b electric cart and make it a scaled down M2 Bradley. I'm hoping that once i have it built I'll be able to crame a driver a gunner and about 4 or 5 pasengers. I live in a mostly desert area and most of the airsoft fields i go to are desert and dirt roads so I'm prity sure i wont have any bogging down problems with the taylor/dunn, With the addition of the tracks I plan on adding a good foot and a half to the body width.

Here is a google video of a whole column of paintball tanks rolling into town. Nice use of paintball panzershrecks or something.
