WOW! :woohoo:

This is seriously impressive work and I can't wait till it's finished. Are you going to add in the gun as well?
Were these the gun emplacements that could lob shells clear across the channel?

In Soviet Russia, Iron Curtain GB builds you!

People look at me funny when I say I own "Fifty shades of Grey". FS36118, FS36270, FS36375.....

If it's anything like the others you've built it's going to be stunning Maarten, definitely going to be watching this one. I'm toying with finding something to go with my 88 AA gun I've just got.

If you are able to reuse the shuttering or make it so you can you should market these!

Stunning as usual but trying not to get excited about it as everytime I start to like one of your pieces you bloody sell or trade it with someone :P

Did some painting today (concrete look)





I think they were camouflaged a Yellow and green mottle scheme
But haven't got any good replies from the Bunker and atlantikwall forums
One of the bunkers still has a Sand yellow front to this day .




And the rest of them have no more paint on them after 70 years,


Here a pic from the above bunker after the war .(this was a bigger version R650 type )


So not sure what to do :ohmy:

I gave the bunker a nice coat of Revell enamel gloss varnish....
(reason) The AK varnish kept peeling off and taking the paint underneath with it when using Tamiya tape!
After it dryed i applied some Vallejo washes.

Really nice Maarten.
Having the figure there gives it a bit more perspective in size.
Looking forward to your next update.
