Vietnamese dad converts van into wooden tank
  • Truong Van Dao, a 31-year-old carpenter from Bac Ninh Province, east of Hanoi, spent three months and invested around $11,000 to convert an unused 16-seater minibus into a French EBR105 model wooden tank.
  • “I consider this wooden tank simply as a normal car, converted into a tank to make it more interesting,” Dao said. “I was thinking that if all the tanks in the world were the same as my tank, there would be no harm. Just fun.”

A dedicated Vietnamese father reportedly spent months and invested tens of thousands of dollars to convert an old van into a French model wooden tank for his son.

Truong Van Dao, a 31-year-old carpenter from Bac Ninh Province, east of Hanoi, and his two colleagues reportedly spent three months converting an old, unused 16-seater minibus into a French EBR105 model, complete with its 2.8-meter-long (9.1-foot-long) replica canon, according to the AFP news agency.
