A week ago a got a mail from a fellow bunker enthusiast,
he was compelled to tell me because it was such a nice build.... he told me there was no green used on the parts i already painted it has to be brown....
and he showed me why and because ....It made a lot of sense (to me )

So last night I removed of al the green paint and gave it a new coat of German yellow.

There will be green on other parts of the bunker, but that is for later .

The plan back than, was to repaint the complete bunker green .

(they never finished the job).
The old paint scheme was yellow and brown ,here you can still see some the original colors.

The Lorient area held out from August 44 until May 45 when Europe was liberated by the Allies
The Last U-boat (U-853) to leave the base was on August 27 th 1944 .

Most of the base collours are done..........next job will be the roof and the fangrost support beams and steps at the rear of the FLAK tower,it loos so clean ....cant wait for the weathering stage .

FANGROST:
Concrete beams to create a space just above the roof of the bunker,Any bombs that would hit the roof will detonate against these beams and hopefully will not penetrate the already 6 Meter plus roof.
On the lorient Keroman III bunker they were not finished so just the suport beams.

That's really going to look cool when you weather the new paint scheme. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the fangrost. :thumbsup :drinks
