I am looking for models of coastal forts, gun emplacements and ideas for some way to indicate the presence of mines suitable for 1:600 scale. Mostly focusing on anything suitable for the Napoleonic period up to the US Civil War. Can anyone offer some suggestions?

Look at Brigade Models from Pico Armor terrain section.

BM 'small scale scenery' are approx. 1/1000. Beautiful stuff but may be a bit small.

Irregular 2mm vary quite a bit but are nominally 1/900th

Langton Miniatures are nominally 1/1200 but I'd say some of their stuff is larger than it should be at that scale. Also lovely models and very 'navally' focussed.

Peter Pig do a full range of ACW 1/600 ships, forts and bits. I haven't any myself but a gaming buddy had some a few years back and they were incredibly good for the scale. They also have markers for mines.

Fighting 15s sell quite a bit 1/600 scenery which looks nice, as does Total Battle Miniatures although these are aimed more at 20th century games.

I don't know if you are still looking or know about my 1/600 naval products, but I make some items that may fit the bill.
In the Ironclads product line I have TS22 a single gun emplacement with two types of guns – one a smoothbore adequate for 1812, TS41 a five gun fort/emplacement and TS82 an earthen four-sided fort 9.5 inches square. Click on TS41 and TS82 for photos of each. The earthen fort comes with inserts of two armored casemates for ACW and two plain inserts converting the fort to any fort from the revolution thru 1812 and the Civil War.
