Any good posts or links on how to scratch AA sights for a .50 Cal in 1/35. I'm building a Canadian M113 Lynx Command and Control vehicle and it has a fold down AA sight mounted on top of the .50. Any ideas?

I get to answer my own question, but years later. I was recently in a model train store looking around for interest sake and came upon some circular locomotive grille work for the exhaust, it was perfect. It had a number of concentric circles working outwards, all I had to do was trim back the necessary circles and there you had it- looks natural and in the right scale.
