Default Home-made incubators????

I know it's probably been asked before - BUT - can someone tell me step-by-step the best way to BUILD an incubator???? I have a fishtank heater, and a 2 ft tank handy, so if they can be used then all well and good! If not, I would like to make one myself. Something reliable and effective, and preferably something that is not going to be too much of an eyesore....

Any pictures, especially step-by-step would be great. Also any pics of finished home-made incubators would be good, so I can steal some ideas!!! Any good links would be handy too.

Thanks all

my mate has succesfully hatched 5 lots of corns, by using the polysyrine box, with a stat and mat, you wanna get a humidity gage in there too!
