Small coastal British AA bunker
British Pillbox - Lincolnshire 3 bay AA Bunker - STL
This casemate is of type Lincolnshire three-bay. During World War II, these bunkers were used for the defence of the United Kingdom against a possible enemy invasion. They were built in 1940 and into 1941
The Lincolnshire three bay pillbox is a variant form of the FW3/23. Essentially it is two of that type placed back to back and sharing an AAMG well to create a rectangular pillbox approximately 6.5m long and 2.5m wide with three fighting compartments. The two enclosed chambers each have three embrasures, one in each external wall. The AA well has the entrance to the pillbox which faces inland. This type of pillbox was generally used as part of the coastal crust and is found on the seawalls of Lincolnshire. In many cases they are now some distance inland as more farmland has been reclaimed from the sea.
This STL file is designed for FDM Printers and print with a 0.6mm nozzle at 0.3mm layer height. Epic scale will require 0.4mm nozzle at 0.2mm layer height for best finish.
Supports are not needed for this model. At larger scales these bunkers may become larger than more common build-plate sizes, you may need to cut them into sections for your machine. Please check the size below.
The printed model measures approx.:
130mm x 53mm x 52mm @28mm Scale
85mm x 35mm x 34mm @00 Railway scale
65mm x 26mm x 26mm @15mm Scale

It is designed for 28mm table top games set in WW2 such as:
Bolt Action, Chain of Command and Konflikt ’47. It can also be used in games such as Judge Dredd, Necromunda and Fallout Wasteland.
Now rescaled to for Flames of War, epic and 00 railways by popular demand.
