Tank Created with Over 5,000 Egg Cartons

Using 5,016 egg cartons, 26 liters of glue, 10,100 nails, 15 liters of paint, 80 square meters of steel and 5,013 staples, sculptor Stuart Murdoch took an astounding 512 hours to create a life-size replica of a Challenger II tank. The tank was built to raise money for the UK charity, Help The Heroes, and their Eggs for Soldiers' national egg and spoon race on March 4 in London.
