Cardboard tank - M113 APC

I've used cardboard for scenery for ages but I have never built a vehicle out of it. I always used hand cut plastic card for vehicles.

Last year though I started a small business selling laser cut cardboard scenery and have found that it is just as strong as plastic and in some ways easier to work with.

The logical next step was to try make a vehicle out of it and I am very happy with how this turned out.

The model can also be built as an open-topped vehicle.

Here are some shots of the unpainted model plus a size comparison with a more well-known kit.

If you would like to buy one, they are in the store. If you buy a pack of 3 they only cost $15 each.

    1. Thanks mate - I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I'm going to put together a chaos version this weekend - see how it looks with the quad gun on top :)

  2. Awesome! Just ordered 3 of these beauties!

  3. Are these still available?
