Wow! All I can say is not only is that a cool kid, but he has a cool dad as well. That's quite a project. And he is right about one thing. Guys may grow old but the love of toys never leave us. LOL. They usually just get more expensive and complex.

BTW, I wonder if the dad incorporated the latest fire control systems into this Sherman?

Did you follow any of the other links to others who are building like sized German tanks? Alot of other neat info on his page!

You know he's a cool dad, he even built in a camera and working paintball cannon into it!

I didn't check the others until you mentioned the links.

You know what, if this fella hasn't trademarked those puppies, that could be quite a profitable business for someone who likes to "work with wood" (not the Bob guy from the EnZyte commercials). LOL. Could you imagine building a few of these and having em on display somewhere? They'd sell like hotcakes. And if you could only find just a limited way to market them, man, talk about rolling in the $$$. That could really become a nice work-at-home project.

You know what's too bad? The fact we didn't have a mini-Armored Division made up of kids with these things to invade NYC during the RNC! Could you imagine the horror such a group of cool kids could have created among the hippy demonstrators when a full force of these tanks opened up on them unrelentlessly with their potato cannons?!?! Damn, what a missed opportunity!
