Just like Andy said - this submission it right on time for the "Purple Hearts" Campaign.

Maybe the Campaign Leader will link back to it for participating members...

Very good article David. I did a rusted out Jumbo a while back, using some of the smiliar methods, but not as well defined as this one. I will certainly try this again using your method. I've a couple of older kits in the stash that I'd be willing to sacrafice in this way. An old Tamiya Panther comes to mind.

Thanks guys, this has really been a fun thing to write. I want to thank Steve (WeWillHold) for his much needed help, without which this article wouldn't have been finished.

So there was a use for a Minicraft M4A1 turret..... :-)
