"It took 130 hours to build the logo tank," Nicolson said. "It took so long because we wanted to make sure it resembled the real thing. We added our own touch when we designed the horns to wrap around the handlebars."

It took additional man hours, but Kennedy is happy with the result. Nicolson, Kennedy and a host of others spent a total of 500 hours building the chopper, which was completed Aug. 4.
