Hardened Shelters

We have some more 2mm previews to follow on from the Hippodrome yesterday, although these are somewhat smaller and a lot further down the historical timeline.

In response to a customer request, we’ve produced two sets of Cold War Hardened Aircraft Shelters (HAS) of the type seen dispersed across military airfields all over the world. Both sets are of a size to accommodate a single fighter-bomber plus ground crew and equipment.

Type 1 are NATO designs, based on those at Leeuwarden Air Base in the Netherlands. These are simple reinforced concrete shelters which aren’t buried or covered over.

The second, larger type are based on a Czech design. These ones are covered in soil and grass to increase the level of protection – internally they’re probably the same size as the NATO ones, but the earth cover makes them appear larger from the outside.

Both sets are cast in resin and come in packs of six.

Although these are part of the 2mm range, they could equally be used as 6mm sheds or workshops – just a thought…
