Friday Fresh: Build Your Own Life-Sized Army Tank Out of Cardboard & More

Build Your Own Life-Sized Army Tank Out of Cardboard & More

Hey, remember the awesome paper gun bloodbath we covered earlier this year? We were wondering, what does it take to recreate your own tank and weaponry with nothing but cardboard, paper, and PVC? Luckily, our curators were able to find out. 

Build a 1:1 scale M1A1 Abrams tank

You can't have a real war without a full-scale tank, right? In this 4-part video, you're shown how to build a 1:1 scale replica tank with just cardboard and PVC. If you decide to make this, let us know! We'd love to see what you do with it.

Make a cardboard pistol

You know what else you need for your cardboard war? Cardboard weaponry! In this video, you'll learn how to recreate the M1911 Colt .45 pistol, one of the most used and effective handguns in modern history.

Make a cardboard M32 grenade launcher

You can't have full-scale war without some grenades. The M32 is an extremely efficient weapon, and can fire six grenades in rapid succession without needing to reload. Check out this video on how to make your own cardboard replica.


Very disappointed to see that the army tank video is private and unable to access
