Scratchbuilt 1/72 Hürtgen Forest Bunker Diorama
Posted by Richard@Home on Monday, December 25, 2017 8:09 PM

Howdie folks.

Finished this a while ago for a magazine article that never happened.

Built from extruded foam and finished with flocks & static grass. As usual, there's a step by step build log with loads more pictures over on my blog: http://www.richbuilds.com/articles/scratchbuilt-1-72-hurtgen-forest-bunker-diorama/

And a couple of shots with some 1/72 armour...

Really great job there! Love the groundwork and the rock stairs up to the top of the bunker! 

Will check out your blog when I have more time.

I looked thru your link showing the build details and trully exceptional work done in this dio. The bunker and Milliput sandbags look like the real thing.Beer

Ironically, a battle fought between the German and US Army and for a moment, even foes attempted an act of sanity and compassion:

That is very well done. I do like the look of the rock and stone and very nice job on those sandbags.
