  1. Very interesting project, first time I see this weapon in model form. Too bad some of your photos are too dark, more light allows a better look of the subtle tonal variations you made with the marble effect

  2. Yes the last are bad ,will post better ones soon

  3. Love your result too, Maarten!

  10. Very good subject, unusually so. It begs the question what your plans are. Is more coming ?

    I grew up on the Most defended part of the Atlantic wall and played in bunkers a lot With my friends . Farmers did not like us and we got busted at times !

    there were many different types stretching inland over several miles . Most were demolished but there are important and classified historical remains. Mostly in the Atlantic wall museum Raversijde and in the Harbor of Oostende Belgium.

    Keep up these amazing builds !

  11. Thanks Bernard !
    Same here... i played among them every summer when i was younger ,plenty of bunkers around here in the Netherlands ( nice ones to ! )

  12. Hello Maarten. We had a similar youth romping around Bunkers !
    It would be quite a journey to vist All the remains of the Atlantic wall from Norway to Spain. A life long quest and pilgrimage through history.
    Keep up the great models you make !
