Here is my submission, made of legos, of course. (Sorry about the handwriting, I had to write it backwards, I used my computer's camera.) It took a bit of planning and a whole lot of digging around through that lego box, but in the end I think it looks kinda nice. (edited because some pictures weren't showing up.)

Bro, that is actually pretty cool.

Wow, tanks from clay, a potato, Lego, the originality is strong in this contest ;)...well here's my SU-85I

 

There are a few materials missing in the preperation photo, but that's because I just found some more stuff to use after the starting idea.

It's made out of 2 egg cartons, plastic pipework, colored paper, colored marker, black duct tape, normal duct tape and alot of glue.

Here’s my entry. I used 90% wood, 7% plastic, 2% foam (for treads) and 1% paper (for the red stars). The tank is about 3 feet long.

Man there are a lot of great entries. I am still building mine out of spare wood I found around my house but mine won't look nearly as good as other people's.

You guys are creative. I don't have that talent.

Good luck to you all. :medal:

This is my entry. It is a scale model, made of ordinary printer paper, using a template I designed myself. It is pretty accurate with only a couple of concessions to practicality. I have included a link to the template in my comments, in case anyone is interested. I set myself the challenge of making it only using a standard A4 page of printer paper and ordinary paper glue.

 

Comments

"Yeah, build a little paper model. That'll be easy enough and lots of fun...". Please punch me repeatedly in the face if I ever think anything like that again. If anyone had told me just how much work would be involved in building this model I wouldn't have believed them.  Having said that, I have (mostly) enjoyed it and am quite proud of it.  Most of the work was in designing the template (http://i.imgur.com/A1cJZC1.png). Making it out of paper made it much harder. Making it out of 1 side of A4 made it much harder.

I have attached some additional images below.

Wow! This is very good! Well done!

Crazy how time flies by when you do something like this.

This is how it began.

 

 

After a lot of burned fingers and a few interruptions...

 

 

This was the result.

Well I thought me putting in several hours of work to make this was a lot, but all of you people have such good tanks, it's hard to compete with. Here's mine I made using spare materials around my house, I hope that it counts for something that I didn't go out in buy anything and it is also 99% wood and 1% plastic(plastic is the commander's hatch and duct tape tracks). For scale, the piece of paper is a normal piece of printer paper 8.5 x 11 inches, so it's actually pretty big.

As an artistic interpretation of an SU85, it is quite brilliant.

All of these are amazing. I knew you all were creative but you've truly blown me away. This makes me look forward to doing more contests like this. For those who haven't submitted, hurry, time is running out.
