    Okay. This is one of my older customs but it is absolutely one of my favorites. Please let me know what you think of it. One of my collections consists of the Thundercats, since I'm a kid of the 80's. I was always unhappy with the little Thundertank that they gave us. So I took it upon myself to build a better one. And here it is. If you are a fan of the show, you will notice how very close to the original it is. I hope you like it. Its made out of a little wood, a lot of cardboard, foam posterboard, tape, Robotix parts and love! I know, I know. Awwwwwww.:crazy:  And yeah, it is a little heavy.

    Here's the original:

    Here's mine in scale to the original. I like mine a lot better.

    Cool! I love that they can sit side-by-side. Does it roll?

    Very Very cool. I still have my old Thundertank sans the treads and I always thought it looked absolutely awesome. You sir have outdone yourself and made a better one!

    No, it doesnt split. I thought about it but just didnt do it. I may make another and have it split as well as the dome cover for the cockpit. And I have to store it cause its too big! Thank you for your compliments.

    Yeah, yet another reason why I made this. Getting one with the treads is way too expensive for my budget. Thanks!
