British Man Builds a Full-Size Tank from 5,000 Egg Cartons

Offbeat

Charity for the troops takes many forms. This one is of the egg-tank variety.

British patriot and sculptor Stuart Murdoch has created the ultimate tank for charity. The Challenger II was built from 5,000 egg cartons, 26 liters of glue, 15 liters of paint, 80 square meters of steel, over 5K staples and over 10K nails. Murdoch created the tank to commemorate the launch of the Eggs for Soliders' national egg and spoon race, held on March 4th, to raise money for the Help for Heroes charity.

The khaki-green boxes used will also fund charity, as 15 cents from the sale of each box goes directly to the cause. Stuart Murdoch spent 512 hours building the Challenger II. For innovation and a good cause, Murdoch definitely did a job well done.
