British Type 24 Pillbox FW3/24 - WW2 Bunker - 3D printed model
The Type 24 pillbox was a small British fortification in an irregular hexagonal shape that was designed and constructed for the expected German invasion of England in World War 2.
The official designation of this bunker was FW3/24 and had an irregular hexagonal shape with five faces of approx. 2.4m and a rear face approx. 3.96m with an entrance only 600mm wide. It came in a few varieties, the thinner walled version (walls to 15 inches thick) had rifle embrasures and thicker walled versions (24 inches thick) had pre-formed embrasures for LMG’s.
All versions of this bunker had internal blast walls some in a Y configuration and some in an X configuration, there was also often a ‘porch’ for the entrance to help protect against blasts.
Often build out of bricks there were also many of poured concrete. And versions exist designed to be shellproof with a stronger roof and thicker walls.

121mm x 113mm x 55mm @28mm Scale
