Welcome to my blog about building a small scale Tank .. yes, a two-tracked vehicle that can go over diverse terrain. This will of course be driven by my son as soon as he’s old enough. He is 3 months now, so I figured I have 2-3 years to finish it, of course much of that time will be used to test, change, test, repeat. This blog will track my progress.
I’m choosing to use a track/drive system similar to a Sherman Tank. It will be powered by two electric motors, one for each side, with independent forward and reverse. I am still undecided on if it will be purely electric, or hybrid electric, which will be determined later as needed.
I am starting the blog today, but the planning of building the tank has already been in the works, and I have collected some crucial parts, which I will get into soon!
For now, I’ll leave you with a few teaser pics.. Till next time!
