Bunker Chimney

Post by M19 MADMAL » 11 Aug 2008 17:21

Hi all,

Does anybody have a plan of a standard bunker chimney with the sizes marked on it?

Hi Malcolm
Not sure of its origin but hopefully it may be of some use.

Regards
Paul

Hi Malcolm

Do you mean the top of the chimney or the pipe of the chimney in the bunker ?

Regards Jos

A well preserved galvanised chimney I discovered just some weeks ago at Stp Arnika (AOK 15 KVA B - Ghyvelde)

the chimney; this chimney is not used as shown in the above plan (I guess this was aplied mostly for Regelbauten), this one's shaft is leading straight down from the roof to the below room without a grenadetrap. The protectionlid - top part - is missing.

It even has a datemark and factorystamp. Thanks to http://lemurdelatlantique.lebonforum.com/ I've already got an ID on the manufacturer; LGA which also made jerrycans as shown here http://sdkfz7.free.fr/man_lga.htm.

Thanks Markus.

Nice addition Jean. First photos I see of one without the top lid. Gives a nice view of the inside construction. I wasn't far off however ;)

Anything known about size or dimensions? I build my 3D model without any size references.

There's also word of 2 versions. A smaller and larger one. Could it be that the larger one has 4 cross sections to improve sturdiness and the smaller one with 3 cross sections (like shown above).
