More Talk About Bunkers on Bunker Talk
Two of the same bunker as shown yesterday.
I painted them in a tan, dark brown, dark green using the type of colors used to paint tanks of the period.
This is a larger bunker. I could hold a 50mm or 75mm gun. It would have to be mounted inside the bunker, there is no way to get a towed gun inside.
The three bunkers are all painted with the same colors and the same general pattern, it brings a certain unity to the bunkers so they look good together.
The flocking is Woodland Scenics, Blended Turf, Green Blend. I paint on a thick layer of green poster paint and then sprinkle on the grass. Then I spray it with the Woodland Scenics white glue, and finally a spray of Testors Dullcote.
The paints are mostly Tamyia, but the concrete is Aged Concrete by Floquil; which is not longer in production.
The roof comes off to move the troops around inside.
