These are some 3D prints I designed for myself

1st is a Parapet style mounting (some reference as Vk600e), often built into the sea walls and was intended to provide enfilade fire up and down the beach while protected from naval bombardment by the 3.5metre concrete glacis and overhead protection facing the sea.

2nd is octagonal design also for Behelfssockellafette (50mm kwk 39)

Next is an open hexagonal concrete pit (Vk600e) also for 50mm kwk 39

Followed by Bauform 207(69alt) Ringstand for Granatwerfer 34

Next are Pantherturm and Panzerturm for Pz38t turret

Intersting, How close to scale are they? I sketched and printed an "artillety" proof design from the UK for a game. Interestingly it would have been impossible to put figures in it as real folk fit into spaces a similar scale figure will not. I do like that you have included a pronted gun shield. Seeps a trifle of a cheat however not to have printed the gun barrel ;-).

@UshCha Not sure how close to scale they are as I only had pictures to go off of. Wanted them to look right but not take up too much space due to ground/figure scale discrepancies in rules.

My plan was to put gun and crew on a round or octagonal base that fits inside so if positioned properly you could fit in figures.
I made the seawall bunker a two piece interlocking model to accommodate this also.

Actually, the Behelfssockellafette (50mm kwk 39) is still a work in progress, as I did print the barrel but due to size it did not come out well so I cut it off. I am still working on it though.
