Taphill Tank Chassis

Ponoko Product Of The Week

When it comes to vehicles, you can’t get much tougher than a tank.

For the hobbyist who likes to do it tough, Ponoko user Wopwop (aka Dom) has provided plans to build a tank chassis that is a perfect fit for SparkFun’s Tamiya tank treads.

Combined with a 70168 under-slung double gearbox, this little beauty will be ready to tackle the roughest terrain.

We all know that a tank won’t go anywhere without a driver – and Dom has this covered too by including mounting holes for an Arduino Uno board as well as sparkfun’s li-poly charger.

The chassis can be reconfigured in a number of ways, to fit other gearboxes and different engine mounts. Add in some 3mm screws and you’ll soon be starting your own miniature invasion force.

Files for the Taphill Tank Chassis are only $5 from Wopwop’s showroom.
