If a stormtrooper wanted an iPhone case this would be his weapon of choice.
MANY MANY MANY prototypes died in the making of this case. I have been working on this thing for a pretty long time trying to get just the right level of nerd and battle ready into the design.
The Tank has a lid that protects the screen from kids - dogs - wolves - teenagers - terrorists ..... bring it is all I have to say.
A lanyard hole has been added just in case your jumping from a plane and you wanted to check your email.
Screws hold the design together, so no kids are taking this thing off unless their nibble little fingers can find a M3 allen wrench!
Anyway if you have an extreme lifestyle and you want a case that will take a mortar shell.
Im going to be adding these to my store if you intrested in a printed one.
Available in color combos:
On Fire= Neon Red Case + Yellow Lid
The joker= Neon Green Case+ Purple Lid
Hunter Special= Orange Case + Yellow Lid
The StormTrooper= White Case + Black Lid
Added a 2mm x20mm screw version for those that want less grip on the sides.
Also added a itank girl (get it?)
it is less tank like and has a larger area to get in there and text.
This was inspired by a student of mine after it was revealed that her smaller paw could not text as easy with the iTank. My banana hands had no trouble but I chicken peck, these younger students have freeken home key positions for petes sake!
Anyway that is the story of the new additions.
Break out you best file because this thing has a built in support system you will need to remove from the center.
It's a great time that should be had by all! (You will want to end your life with the file but try to resist the finished product is worth it)
Find yourself 2 20mm M3 screws and nuts. (They will barely fit, That is normal)
Also included the Blender file just incase you wish to tweak.
