A unusual theme.
For concrete buildings bunker are more common.

You have done a really nice job.
By modeling your own mold.
As painting.
And you do the road section a bit more higher a the surrounding area. A small but nice detail.

You use for the motorbike finally the Preiser set.
But it look like you use Hasegawa riders instead of the included Preiser riders.
Why?

A very interesting piece, it really highlights the scale of these tank traps and the alienation of the landscape.

It's not an attractive scene because the subject is so ugly, but it's very well made and very well painted and it really makes an impact.

Well done!

Very well done, and a good and interesting theme

I tend not to agree with you. Although it can be a bit alienating it is very fascinating and can even be considered beautiful to see these dragonteeth obstacles stretch for miles through the scenery, like Hadrian's Wall.

I absolutely loved :love: walking along the best bits of Hadrian's Wall, I'll have to try to see these WWII defences in the same light.

Coming to think about it, when Hadrian's wall was newly built and 15 feet high it must have looked every bit as alien and sent exactly the same "keep out" message as the Atlantic Wall.
