Two of these turrets were mounted on Bauform 246 bunkers in 1944.
I made the base out of Evergreen sheet plastic, .020 thou black sheet plastic for the basic disc and .040 thou white plastic for the concrete pedestal. The earth near the concrete is my usual Apoxie Sculpt epoxy putty concoction with pebbles.
The figure is a Blue Max resin figure. The paint scheme is largely conjecture as the historical photo suggests a multi-color hard-edge scheme.
The background photo in the scenic view was taken on Omaha beach near where I think the turret was located (long since removed).
An article will follow in a future issue of Military Modelling.
