Maarten, I assume you have a copy of 'Hitler's Atlantic Wall'? If not I highly recommend it. If you have any other great references to recommend please do.

These kind of fortifications have been something of a lifelong obsession of mine!

Knowing me .................No (but i realy want to ....but never end up finishing it ! :( )

I am more into making / building something ....mostly ending giving it away and sometimes selling it to a really good diorama builder .

Nice work Maarten :)
The battle damage just adds that much more realism to it.
If I ever find myself building something with a bunker I know who i'll be asking for advice.

St. stands for Ständiger Ausbau.
Meaning :
Construction of reinforced concrete and steel up to 5 meters thick, could withstand a direct bomb hit of 500 kg and direct artillery fire up to a caliber of 22 cm.
Bunkers are gas proof , and from within defensible
