Could be the perspective, but the opening looks quite large for an observation post.
Looks like you could easily jump out there.

The bunker is not just fall but were firefighters on the ground water for several hours so that the bunker could fall safely. :wink:

It doesn't seem to be the same, these last photos show a bunker with round roof corners, doesn't it? (it's a bit late here...)

After more than a year, I decided to search for more photos and information about this bunker in order to build a replica. I still haven't figured out it's proportions, a photo with a human by it's side would be helpful.

I've created a 3d model based on the photos I was able to gather. I've used Google Sketchup. It's not very elaborate as it's the first time I've used this program.

I'd appreciate some help regarding the interior. Please contact me if you think you can help.
