The bunker is grand manners version of part of the Douvres raidar site, the actual site is huge and covers a very large area and had 2 types of raidar.
If you do cast your 6mm model up all your doing is copying grand manner and their version of the site.
your arrow is pointing at a door which is represented by a solid peice of resin.

Ok, mental note for next time, don't aim arrow at doors (as I meant the bit next to the door Embarassed )

Copying the Grand Manner thing wasn't exactly the idea, how nice it is anyway, I'm expanding the complex a bit (well, a lot) and I'm going to try my luck at the other radar posts and a few of the really big bunkers as well. Just for kicks.

I might put up some pics of my first pieces later this week now, life has a bigger priority to anything game related at the moment.

Johan

Johan if it's the round object above the door, that's a air ventilator, you should try and visit the real site as it is in amazing condition and the place is very well preserved. Wink
