Im looking for some coloured pictures of atlantik wall bunkers.
Ive got some difficulties painting my bunkers - they still look brand new...!!
The base colour i used was dark grey - is that fine ?
The biggest problem is to mix that colour that gives them that "sandy" look from the weathering. Do you have any advice to get me back on tha track again ??
( im a drybrusher type....)

Respect to you all !!

We have a load of bunkers around where i live (Silkeborg) and thay were all painted after construction. You can still see the original pant in the openings/doors and the typeclassification i white paint also in the entranceopenings.

The paint seems to be the standard "dunkelgelb" with brown and/or green camouflage.

So if you are doing a wartime dio, ll suggest you paint the bunker yellow and brown and do an weatering according to the age of the bunker and the enviroment (coast/inland).

This seems to me the bunker in which Maj. Pluskat was located when he reported the invasion: "Achtung, die Invasion ist da: 5.000 Schiffen"!
Nice picture of it!

First of all welcome to the site

I looked a bit around on the internet on things like Bunkers, WW2 bunkers and Atlantik wall and this is just a fraction of what I found.
When you click in the above link on Batterien you will be provided with plenty of good color pics of Bunkers
Above link will provide you with plenty Atlantik Wall pictures from Holland to France. beware this page hase sound (happily nobody here at school noticed as I was playing Jimi Hendrix)........( a bit too loud :-) :-) )
Site above is Dutch but the pics speak for themselves

This was just what a quick search delivered there is plenty more
