I was making sytrofoam wheels for my science project and i thought of using one of them for a sabot or wadding.
Heres some pics of how i made them...
Grab a piece of your barrel...
Trace with a marker...
Cut with a bandsaw...
Glue items in or on the foam
The damage to a metal sign (with the steel endcap )
Cheers, If you have any improvements please let me know
Awesome, although how are those poor buggers going to sell their house now
Sabots are becoming popular lately, bit of foam to clean up but who cares.
Very nicely done. Love that damage!

When you fill your car with refined oil remember that it has been paid for with blood and guts, some from your own countrymen, most not.
I hope you owned that sign

rather than use a bandsaw for foam I prefer to take a piece of barrel material and sharpen the edge similar to a hole saw:
it's obvious for the photos that he totally PWNED!!!! that sign
*follows JSR's method, finger slips* OMG my index finger!!!!!!!!!!!! The blood, the blood!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
I, too, think that the bandsaw method is too time-consuming, leave that for tougher sabot materials like plywood. What Jack suggested is good, as is a short bit of barrel and a hammer in case things get tough(heavy blunt objects solve everything!!!).
EDIT: Wow, it looks like he was stripping for the tank. Totally owned the sign, man, and by now Ive forgotten who started this thread, oh well, congrats to whoever did it.

With foam, sharp and fine is the key
Was a joke^^
I only mentioned the hammer because it has helped me through bits of tougher potatoes when I didn't feel like getting a sharper object.
Oh, and Jack, thats only with styrofoam, the harder type of foam(I forgot what it is called, sometimes used to hold flower arrangements together? I get it at Michael's) will succumb just fine to brute force.

@ JSR, I tried that but it just ripped the foam unevenly, maybe finer teeth would work. Gotta love tanks!
@BC, Yea it was mine, we were goin to sell our house but didnt so I got a free sign.
@Novacastrian, lol that made me laugh
fair enough but that means it's easily crushed as a sabot
I don't use teeth, I just get it down to a fine edge like a muzzle knife - though this usually works best for metal barrels.
It comes out as 3 pieces usually, only once I was able to reuse one.
Next time I go to wall-mart I'll pick up some of that hard foam windshrike was talking about. I'm sure I'd be able to reuse it at least once hopefully.
