Here's my latest creation:

And a YouTube video on how I made the camouflage net:

Really nice netting and a beautiful bunker but I don't like youtube videos. Your video is no worse than any others, but I don't have the patience to listen to 17 minutes of rambling discussion.

Where does the mesh come from ?

There's some kind of a discussion of how to make it look more realistic, but I spaced out

Some references to sources for patterns and sizes would be nice

I'm not sure if this a diorama or a wargame piece – I would suggest that the base has so much grass, tufts and stuff that it would be impractical to put attacking figures on top

Sorry to be negative, but like most people over the age of 40, I prefer the written word and pictures are worth 100 words – your pictures are excellent

Nice looking piece.

Great work. Use it for wargaming. The tabletop can only be bettered by this piece (and others like it).

Thanks for sharing!

That is terrific work!

Need a bazooka with lots of ammo to bust this!

Thanks guys. Answers to some questions:

Where does the mesh come from ?

- Craft or art supply stores in the sculpture section. It comes in various gauges, so you can likely get something suitable for the scale you're working in.

Some references to sources for patterns and sizes would be nice

- Osprey Publishing WW2 Tactical Camouflage Techniques & lonesentry.com, though that site has been taken down, unfortunately.

I'm not sure if this a diorama or a wargame piece I would suggest that the base has so much grass, tufts and stuff that it would be impractical to put attacking figures on top

- I'm playing Crossfire, so a squad base needs only to be in contact with a terrain feature to close assault it. However, the grasses are fairly robust, unless a base is made out of metal, I don't think it would get compressed.
