  7. Nice one Maarten
    Well made bunkers. Its a great subject but very few modellers touch it. You used plaster for walls I think?

    A few years ago
    I together three buddies built a whole bunker complex including radars for a local museum. The bunker was a L487 for aerial defence along the Dutch coast and part of the Atlantik Wall.

  8. Thanks Brian,
    Yes , I make the formwork just like the real thing... in stead of wood i use plastic strips with simulated wood grain all the steel work is also plastic and i replace the concrete with Model Plaster .
