Wow. At least it could double as a dog house (for you or the dog) due to it's size.

You should sell it to the cheese eating surrender monkeys, maybe the museum at Lorient would want something this good.

As you have built the flak gun I assume your building the pens in WW2 era. So while the steel reinforcement is very well modelled but I query if it is contemporary or a modern addition to reinforce a more recent failing sea wall?

I'd say it was definitely WWII era, you've only got to look at the insides of the pens and see it's in there as well. It's got a bit more give than concrete so probably aided the motion of the craft moored there. I've also seen it attached to some of the sunken Mulberry harbour sections off the UK coast.

It was the lack of seeing them in pictures of the inside of the pens that had me wondering. Obviously I looked at the wrong pictures.

I also thought they were a modern addition.
here you can see U168 arriving at the Lorient base 4,jan 1944

And here straight after the capitulation 8,mai 1945

Primed with dark grey, and Basic rust colors applied.
Got hair dryer out to speed up the drying time
This how it looks after a few washes and brush speckling

It will be weathered more and it will get a nice crust of barnacles

Your work gets crazier and more amazing.. Im casting a 665 tobruk bunker and it is nothing, but trying to make the inside shuttering is days of hard and tricky work. Cant even imagine how hard something so big and complex is!
