Eric,
Wow! That is quite a large project. Is the top roof section going to be removable to show the interior? Also is this going to be pre-June '44 or involving some level of combat?

Keep up the good work!

I must echo Jim's comments. That is an impressive looking bunker! As Jim said,' Will the roof be removeable?' I look forward to seeing it in the next phase!

Howdy,
Ehhhhhhh......

Yes the roof part is removeable.
The whole idea of this bunker is to create it with interieur !!! Personell and equipment.
The Bunker comes in a setting while the landings are in place in 1944.
So there is also going to be made is a beach landing crafts ans us soldiers and of course the hill......

This project must be finished in 3.5 years before the Twenot has its 30th anniversary...

so i have the time

Till we meet again...

You seem to be able to do so much work on your projects in so little time that I'm not afraid for you ! And in the meantime, you always find time to discuss with everyone on the site...
How do you do it ?
Do you ever go to sleep sometimes ? :-) :-) :-)

Pen Pen,

I sleep as normal as ordonary people.
The time i work on a model is about two or three ours a day in the evening.
The time i work on the Internet is approx 30 min a day....
But in the weekends i might work a litte bit longer at my models sometimes a whole day and evening.
And there are times that i don't build at all, somtimes for day's....
So here it is

This diorama will not be at my house once it is finished.
It will be placed in a model store or i donate it to a museum.
