Pizza Tank

If you like high flying pizza action then check out my conversion of the  Turtles Pizza Thrower for What a Tanker

I had been looking for a tank to use for the What a Tanker game we are going to play at BOYL this year.  The idea that came to mind was trying to make a KVish tank from the TMNT Pizza Thrower.

My first plan was to attach the turret of the launcher to the hull of the Turtle Tank.  So I set to work.
Oh ya the thrower still works.

After cutting out the needed space to allow for the frame, I realized it was way to out of scale. So on to plan B.

The next idea was to just put some treads on the Launcher Hull.  This worked way better, and gave it a way lower profile.
I got the treads from an extra Motu Shark Tank I had.  then most of the accessories came off the Turtle Tank.




Of course I had to test it on my minis.  It actually didn't damage them, I was afraid after that first video it might be to powerful. 

It does need the weight of the batteries, but I don't plan on actually shooting it at BOYL unless some of my brave friends actually want me too. 


Periscope added for the buttoned up crew, as well as radar, and an extra exhaust pipe off the top.  Or I could add a banner or something.



Here it is next to 28mm counterparts.  Big but not out of hand imo.


Now on to priming!
