Thnaks Milan

Im progressing slowly. Making the forms is a really slow process. You have to construct in reverse almost.
hopfully it will be worth it and getting the forms right is the 95% of the work.

Hello Pat,

First of all, a belated happy new year - and WOW - that is great, just like the real thing. Do you intend to start mass producing, or just a one off piece? German bunkers are just great model to build, and if you detail the internal, you can really create a scale size of the real thing. At the moment, my project is at a halt - still going on with the house maintenance and decoration works, but shall be able to restart working on the model, by the end of next month.

Once again - Well done.

Hi All

Ive made some more progress with the shuttering to the outer walls. Its been much more difficult than I expected. Had to remake some of the shuttering as I got some of the angles wrong for the junctions of the rounded tops to the walls. Ive made them so the rounded sections can be lifted off the top of the shuttering to allow access inside when placing thee wire mesh reinforcement and tamping down the cement mortar when placed inside. Its very time consuming, but bear with me.

Hi Paul

And all the best in the New Year to you as well.

If I could mass produce them and could sell them that would be great. However the inner forms have to be virtually destroyed getting them out. The outer walls are reusable, but once Ive made one I don't bother making the same one again. I too have to snatch a few hours here and there in between jobs around the house. My wife thinks Im mad and gets annoyed if I spend to much time "playing" as she describes my hobby (I could be playing golf like my mate next door is my reply!

My brother in law now works in Denmark and has invited us over - Im already researching some bunkers to visit while Im there, but Im having to keep it to myself so I can appear to just stumble across them by accident if we do in fact visit them.

As for finishing this model. its going to be at least 3 or 4 weeks more.

Regards

Pat

note the ventilation grills (Dolph) and the brass beams (7mm x 2.5 mm) in place above the overhang, in the previous photo

Ive made the armoured plates to the weapons ports with brass sheet, drilled a hole and filed with square pin file. The angles above the doors are also brass.
