Well, there is http://www.bunkerinfo.nl/, and http://bunkersite.com/ and http://www.forten.info/ and https://www.bunkerbehoud.com/index.php but the only detailed plans I have are in my books on German bunkers in the Netherlands

Great stuff, looking forward to more.

I share your opinion of Grubby resins, got a couple recently and was disappointed in the quality compared to say, PSC plastics.

I've been missing out. Somehow I've managed to not drop in on this thread for a long time. I too love these projects and there is some great eye candy here. :good: :thumbsup: :good: :thumbsup: :good:

BTW I'm starting to use a blog to store my pictures on too, it is easier to link from there than it is to Photobucket, when I need to put a picture into a post I make here. I don't want all my stored pics to appear on my blog, so I've set up a 'hidden' blog space for those.

Photobucket has become more and more of a pain to use. I understand that this is deliberate on their part to try and coerce people using it for free to pay for a subscription and so lose all the ads.

I might, however, give Imageshack a go too.

Have a look at Imgur, easy to use and slick, supports drag and drop, etc. Moved to it from Photobucket for the exact reasons you state.

Alcal insipred me to restart an old idea, and with the help of my villages FB group I have all the stuff I need for it (managed to collect a bag of empty Pringels cans after placing a wanted ad).

Image

My usual low budget style, just a proof of concept, I can now work out the plans for this and get parts lasercut for the processing building times 2 so I can make 2 versions (1 normal, 1 ruined). No lift off roofs or anything like that, doesn't fit my style of play, is faster to build and more sturdy.

Will have to do double duty in 20mm and 28mm as well, windowsizes will be a bit in between, suitable from WW1 till modern day. Historical to SF.

Building will be in several parts, silos as one block with opening on one end so I can shove in other scenery, centre row of Pringle cans is replaced with a foamboard box to support the top. Processing building is also seperate and should slot together with a few magnets. Top conveyor building is seperate as well. Future additions can easily be made this way, like another set of silos that can just be slotted against it or against the 2nd processor building enhancing it's use on the table.

Not anytime soon though, I have a few comissions to do first.

There's no fooling you, is there ? ;)

Yup. This week I received a batch of 20+ slightly thinner but twice as tall carboard tubes (the ones people have rolls of foil on to seal rolling carts for trucks) so I might go with the more to size one even if it's not really that apt for storing. Or not. haven't made my mind up yet.

Got a bit fed up with so many different threads by me, so I'm combining it all into one now.

My current flavour is Partisans.

I've based all 25 partisans that I had (which was almost exclusively Kelly's Heroes) and then started work on the neccesary conversions.

I now have a towed and deployed 45mm gun 1938 with my trademark mininal bases.
Image
Image

Now working on the Partisan MG08 team (basically a Volkssturm one with a headswap and greenstuff) which ready for final cleaning and basecoat:
Image

And the Partisan Messenger/Mounted Scout team Leader. Already removed all of the Germanness from it and did basic GS work, now need to fine tune it and remove the remaining mould lines. Als convert a PSC Ppsh to a 41 with a banana clip and put that in his left hand.
Image

Since I'm having troubles with Britannia, I've now shifted focus to Lancer Miniatures to try out their Partisans.

I have the funniest brain. I seee somwthing I like, I want to build it, like right now. Never mind it will take me several sit ins to complete it or anything. So, thx to Alcal I'm now working on barbed wire defences, 2 inches/5 cm's at a time. Times 40. Yerrr.....

Image

But we are getting there. 7 now wired up, 23 bare Spanish Riders tooled up and being sanded, if needed, and 10 more in parts......but there is only so much superglue sniffing I can stand in one sitting. When they are all done I will give them a wash in one go, then a drybrush, and be done with it. No basing this time, it makes them more suitable for any location I choose to fight in.

Currently doing a 30 day build challenge - basically build 1 kit a day, base it and have it ready for upgrades and/or basecoat.

A couple of days in, I've made some nice headway.

New kit: ACE 85mm AA gun - 95% done (4 wheel hubs and a small gap to fill is all left to do) - gun is magnetised
Image

Fix-er-upper: S-Models BMP-1 - 90% done (fixed broken parts and tracks, need to replace the MG, reglue some bits, make a new hatch) - turret is magnetised
Image

New kit: First to Fight Polski Fiat#1 - Done!
Image

New kit: First to Fight Polski Fiat#2 - 50% done
Image

Fix-er-upper: Airfix Rescue Vehicle (incomplete) - Done! (removed incomplete equipment and replaced with PSC truckbed and trimmed down chassis)
Image

New kit: Dapol Water Tank - Done! (A few modifications to make it more suitable for my style of basing. Will also work for 28mm)
Image

Plenty of days to go, and plenty of work to do :)
