This will be only a third of the entire bunker
(complete bunker aprox 51+ cm in 1/35 scale )
Have made this R650 type before, but without the war damage.
See picture .




The gun is schratsbuild,
Only found a hand full of drawings of the actual gun.... its a Canon de 105 mle 1913 Schneider ,so the gun was no problem only the rear is build with the minor detail i could find,but then again only the front part is visible.

Hi Maarten
Excellent gun and bunker,when you paint it in that camouflage, it'll look great.

Its a shame, that most of the iternal stuff Will be hidden from view…

Or are you planning that you can open a section for a internal view?

Stunning work!

Beautiful work Maarten. Absolutely outstanding.

I know Azeville very well and you are doing it perfectly. My heart aches seeing this, I was due to travel to Normandy in May.
