We ran across this on Boing Boing yesterday and spent way too much of the day watching the four-part videos.  As most of you are aware, owning, building, or even just experiencing a tank is high on Seans list of things-to-do-before-he-dies.  So he wants to jump on this right away.

Anyway, this is a really great watch, and all the videos are available via YouTube.  The first is embedded above, but here are links to all four:

Part 1: Intro, Body Shell, Suspension
Part 2: Tracks
Part 3: Engine, Controls, Weapons
Part 4: Transmission

    This is fantastic – this guy is like the “Croc Hunter” of the tank world.

    Very cool. I hope to do a major project like this in my retirement. Too bad that is like thirty or forty years away.

    Hey, one technical issue. I find the button for “Interesting Post / What’s This” too close to the “comment on this” link. I keep hitting that link by accident–maybe it could be a little further down from the comment link. I dunno, hope that I am not being a PIA or picking nits.

    Chris: I’ll give it a look this weekend. I bet I can separate it a bit more. Thanks for letting us know!

    All: Damn, I want to build one of these.

    It will be mine…. oh yes, it will be mine.
