Good lord that looks real. With sufficiently good painting and weathering it would fool anyone into thinking it was a real one.

Wow - That is really impressive work. I don't know your technique being new here, but as it is unlikely I will ever build a bunker that info is probably wasted on me.
However I would be interested to know what material you made this with - cast with plaster ?

Your concrete certainly passes for concrete. Fantastic. The door is great also. Will be watching this one.

Wow mate that is looking so good, I'd love to get my hands on that. Something like that would look cool heavily weathered in some post apocalyptic Dio.
Did you cast the top lookout section as well?

The steel 6x Mg cupolla is from

I did not find good drawings with sizes so the easy thing was to buy one , i ordered some silicone and will be making a mold from it.

Really nice work. We still have quite a few bunkers here in my city - Dunedin. A disappearing gun and bunkers at the head of our peninsula that have now been restored. Built to defend against the Russians in the very early 1900's. More on the southern coast of the city that are still in reasonable order.
