I have always called you the bunker King and this is why. Nice to see the Commander out and about doing photo shoots with you too. Utterly professional

Finally my schneider gun arrived !! Terrible French shop to do business with as most French internet shops are.


Correct gun for this type of bunker the Germans captured many of these guns all over europe in 1940 .

This is just a mock up to see how it looks , expensive kit because.......... i only will be using the gun parts ( the germans placed them on static mounts)

Hello,

Love your work! Looks mega realistic. I had a quick look on the thread but couldn't see an answer. I've been trying to build my own bunkers and have always had trouble getting the wood style texture for the concrete. How do you manage it? I can see you use rectangular material to get the basic detail form. Do you then go over it all with filler of some kind and then texture?

Hi,

I pre scratch my Polystyrene sheets with a Hobby knife to simulate the wood grain ,i use 3 different thicknesses of sheet 0.5mm,075mm.and 1mm so you get an uneven look and not a flat looking bunker,
Than i cut the the strips/Planking ......and to get the best detail i use special plaster ''Molda super''
