The body can be divided into six parts; the upper part, the down part, the front part, the back part and the two sides part. To build the body from those six parts, provide six cuts of wood with different size.
Each size depends on how big the body of wooden armored car bank will be. However, create to sides that have the same size. It will be used for windows side on the right and the left of the wooden armored car bank.

It means that each wheel of the wooden armored car bank willbe made of two sided circle wood. Before you install the wheels, make a hole on the centre of each wheels.
