Here is the heater that i received.

Hello all,

It was fun to build this unusual item, and finally it will be a bit warmer in the observation bunker in the winter.

The figure is a 1/72 Preiser figure for comparrison, and won't come with the heater. Have fun.

Hi Remco, Or i should enlarge the hole on the roof, so people can watch inside. :mrgreen:
But seriously, there should be a bunkbed expected in a couple of weeks, which i hope to get too.
