Second ruff for Houston


As I said I was going to do last week, I got Marco out of the foxhole and made him take a more active role in his defense by placing him behind a 20mm anti-aircraft gun. The reference for this one is from a naval ship, and obviously due to the shape of Marco needed to be modified. The big H-Bomb is coming in more at an angle for effect rather than a straighter drop.
