Remember the cardboard wizard who turned Amazon boxes into a Japanese temple? Well, he's back, and this time, he's created a remote control cardboard model tank.

In the video below, you can see NicoNico Douga user Upuaza Touryou create a Type 97 Chi-Ha, which was used by the Imperial Japanese Army in the late 1930s and early 1940s.

The model took two months to complete and cost 1,500 yen ($14.50) to make.
