German ww2 bunkers in 1/35 scale.

R650 10.5 cm K 331(f) bunker
Only the front part ,otherwise it would be too big.








R671 10.5 cm K 331(f) bunker (Complete bunker)








just the rear parts of bunkers,the rest of the bunker would be coverd with earth/dirt so no need to build the rest (To big)



French turret not part of the bunker .




Molds made from plastic sheets and strips,bunker is cast in Molda super (plaster)The shuttering is not reusable after i pull it of .

Looks pretty good. Bunkers are, for some strange reason,
very interesting.

The bunker still drying out ,
The yellow orange stuff is balsa foam ....took most off out it out with a sculpting tool and the rest will be brushed out .....with a stiff old pigs hair paintbrush .
( so no the damage the plaster )







Still have to make a floor and a small wall to go in front of the bunker(don't know the English word for it )

Thanks Richard,

When you get the hang of it it goes really quick the most work goes into scratching and cutting the strips off plastic .
I filled up the sides spaces and under the roof with blocks of blue foam,and stil it took a little over 5KG of plaster .
