Really simple square bunker ,

made from molda super (special casting plaster)
will add some detail inside the top part of the construction
Also will be adding a standard Panther turret with some detail inside.

Great job Maarten, you’re the King of ‘crete. As you say shame the detail will be buried – no chance of one side being perspex to reveal the interior?

Like Timbo suggested,any way to make the upper part removable so you can see the innards?

Yes, I agree - a fascinating subject.

Out of interest, in one of the first images, what are those vehicles(?) in the background. Kangaroos?

Yes this is a fascinating idea Maarten, and expertly done! Like to see how you bring about the scenery and base, or will it be free standing? Beautiful concrete surfaces BTW.
Any chance of curious Allies giving your Pantherturm an inspection? Or perhaps the turret crew outside waiting for the approaching forces, w/ an eye on the sky? Talk about a fixed target

Cheers

Doesn't Meng or Takom make a clear panther?

Why not use the clear turret with a clear top plate to see more detail?

Very cool idea and build. Especially like the concrete treatment

It is dug in .
Haven't got much time for my own model building projects
(I am making a bunker for somebody else )
This is how it stands at the moment.
