Replica Bunker Fittings

Post by TomGun » 12 Mar 2023 23:15

Hi all, I've just started a company that specialises in replication, designing and 3d printing small objects. some of my first pieces were German bunker fittings as my Dad runs Festung Guernsey so I cut my teeth replicating some bits for him. these are a great alternative for small parts that are required in bulk or single parts that are simply too hard to come by or too expensive to risk permanent display. here is a small selection of pieces I've made, I hope you enjoy.

wauw! 3D printing is one of the things i'm fantasizing alot, but to expensive for me to buy a good one. i draw lots of bunkers in 3D with sketchup which we measure in detail on the terrain, especially German bunkers from the ww1 era in the AOK 4 (Flanders) and AOK 7 (Laon) regions. it must been fantastic to print them sometimes in 3D on scale.

Very nice projects of yours!

Very cool Tom. So these are all intended for plastic 3d printing?

it is Tomgun who has started a company with plastic 3D printed bunker parts.

If you want it is nice to see how things looked like. I think it is not usable in a practical way. I mean a bakelite light switch may look nice but you can better buy one and use it to put on the light.
