Friday Fun: Build your own Sherman tank edition

Ok, I've posted a lot of strange stuff over the years, but this one has to be one of the coolest and strangest yet. There's this guy that's built himself a working 1:2.5 scale model Sherman M4A1 tank, complete with engine, turret, tracks, paint ball gun, the works. And he's produced a series of short videos (on YouTube, natch) with a quick-and-dirty description of how he's done it. He plans to produce a more detailed version so people can replicate his feat.

I've watched a fair bit of it and it's fascinating. The sound isn't that terrific, but I'm pretty sure his name is David Madson.

Take a look, it's cool stuff, in a very sick, twisted, militaristic sort of way, of course.
