I watched a British made documentory about the U Boat pens and they covered the baffled roofs in detail. Very good program. The hardened assembly sites under construction at wars' end were really something.

It’s looking ever more majestic Maarten, fascinating progress. I’ll believe your take on the camo patterns, previously I was dubious about their effectiveness against attack but now that I see how you’ve clarified it, maybe it was tested from typical bombing height and proved to blur the structure’s outline. Whatever it’s looking great, bravo

Thanks for looking and comment Paul.
--------------------------------------------------------
Most of the base colors are done..........next job wil be the roof and its fangrost support beams , steps at the rear of the FLAK tower.

The plan back than, was to repaint the complete bunker green .
(they never finished the job).





When i start weathering it won't be so nice and clean anymore



FANGROST:
Concrete beams to create a space just above the roof of the bunker,Any bombs that would hit the roof will detonate against these beams and hopefully will not penetrate the alredy 6 Meter plus roof.
On the lorient Keroman III bunker they were not finished so just the suport beams.

Primed with dark grey, and Basic rust colors applied.
Got hair dryer out to speed up the drying time
This how it looks after a few washes and brush speckling



It will be weathered more and it will get a nice crust of barnacles

I think you captured the look very well. Nicely rusted.
There was a show from the BBC that covered the German UBoat bunkers. Very well done. It explained how the roofs were designed with doubled ceilings and baffles to dissipate the force of explosions. They worked well except of course,for the Grand Slam bombs. But even they only made a pretty small puncture.
This is a very cool project.

Very nice, most impressive!
Apparently someone believes in the phrase " Go large or return to you dwelling"...



Idea for sheet piling:
https://www.amazon.com/Handi-Foil-Half-Size-Sheet-Cake/dp/B01JH4HTS0
Very common & inexpensive here, not sure of availability in the Netherlands.
I have used it for damaged fenders and tin roofs, worked well...



Thanks Tom ,

How great minds think alike..... i just got back from the supermarket and bought the very same type of trays and some nice Boudin
(French saugage )
