Watch This Life-Sized Tank Get Built Out of Egg Cartons

By Jon Partridge on at

Building a tank out of egg cartons isn't the most conventional way to support Britain's soldiers. But sculptor Stuart Murdoch went against conventions to make his own, pretty awesome, life-sized replica of the British Army's tank: the FV4034 Challenger 2. A lot of work went into this "egg"-cellent piece of carton engineering, which took over 500 hours and 5,000 egg cartons -- as shown in the time-lapsed video.

The tank wasn't built for a giggle though, it's also a bold statement to promote the first national annual egg-and-spoon race -- Eggs For Soldiers, that is in aid of Help For Heroes on March 4th, a worthy cause for sure. [Eggs For Soldiers via The Daily What]
