Bunker and Accessories

Reviewed by Glen Porter


Stock Number and Description Italeri No 6070 Bunker and Accessories
Scale: 1/72
Media and Contents: 161 plastic parts on three sprues plus 1 vacuum formed base. No separate instructions or decals.
Review Type: First Look
Advantages: Interesting subject, good basis for a diorama
Recommendation: Recommended



This set is one of a series of new releases by Italeri in 1/72 scale which I think are aimed more at the War-Gamers but could still be used in 1/72 dioramas. Some of the others are a Country House and Battle Field Accessories. The set comes in a cigar type box with hinged lid and assembled/painted example on the top, other models from the series on the sides and an exploded assembly diagram on the bottom.

The first sprue, in light grey plastic, has two walls for the Bunker, its roof, which may be left unglued, and four platforms for troops to stand on at the gun ports. Other details could be added if required.


The next, in tan plastic, has 44 gallon drums, packing cases, wood and steel field obstacles plus rectangular wood grained pieces that could be used for table tops, doors or whatever.

The last sprue, also in tan, has multi piece telegraph poles, sign boards, road signs and a host of sand bags. Unfortunately, the sand bags are way over scale. Measuring about a metre by a half metre, they would be a bit heavy to lift once full of sand.

The final item in the box is a vacuum formed base with a flat area on which the bunker sits. All this will need is your imagination and a nice action diorama could result.


Thanks to Italeri for the review sample.
