I know you like the bunkers, so this might not be of value, but it might help: http://worldwartwozone.com/forums/index.php?/files/file/3428-german-field-fortifications/
Well done, Sir. Great tale. You've been able to do something most of us won't. Well done indeed! :applause:

Just think if they had figured a way to do inflight refueling of the P 51 fighters . Then they would of kicked the German fighters out of the air and daylight bombing would of been successfully , probably would of worked with the P 47 also .

I’ve tried everything I know, but no go. I switched to Google Chrome and everything works fine. I'm still having problems posting photos with Internet Explorer 7 here at the WW2 Zone as well as functionality problems posting in the threads, such as most of the button features don't work and the ability to copy/paste into and within WW2 Zone threads don't work. This is extremely irritating and the WW2 Zone is the ONLY site that I have problems with while using IE 7.
These problems started back in January and at first I thought it might have to do with my hard drive crash, installation of a new hard drive and operating system (Windows 7 from Vista). But, in the same time period as the resurrection of my PC from the crash and burn, the WW2 Zone moved to a new server and had a software upgrade. So I'm not sure where the problem lies. Everything worked fine when I was using IE 7 with Windows Vista. But not now when using IE 7 with Windows 7. The problem is ONLY with the WW2 Zone. Other forums that use similar (same?) software as here also work fine. So I think the problem lies with the new WW2 Zone software.
Everything seems to work fine with Google Chrome, but I really don't like it. First off, it is much slower than IE 7, sometimes taking up to 30 seconds (and sometimes longer) to open the WW2 Zone or one of the threads. It’s also slower when opening other sites as well. IE 7 opens web pages very fast, usually within 5 seconds or less. The WW2 Zone, or one of the threads within, opens in 2 or less seconds. There are exceptions of course, especially with Chinese and Asian based websites. European and Russian based websites usually open pretty fast (5-10 seconds) with IE 7, but ALL websites are much slower with Google Chrome.
Secondly, I don’t care for Google’s business practices. Criticism of Google includes alleged misuse and manipulation of search results, its use of others' intellectual property, concerns that its compilation of data may violate people's privacy, censorship of search results and content, as well as concerns over traditional business issues such as antitrust, monopoly, and restraint of trade.
I know other search engines may be using similar practices, but Google is the one making headlines about privacy issues. In fact there was a Class Action Lawsuit† dismissed this last December against Google that had a possible 22.5 million dollar fine…”If this civil penalty goes through, it will be the largest ever secured by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission for a violation of this sort” ‡ Even though this lawsuit was dismissed, the accusations about internet privacy continue and there will no doubt be more lawsuits. As I said, there’s most likely other companies doing the same thing, but Google was the one caught in the cookie jar, and sued because they have the deepest pockets. But even lawsuits won’t change ANYTHING!
A Google statement in reply to the above mentioned lawsuit:
Back in 2005, while on a fine and fun-filled tour in Iraq, courtesy of the US Army, someone in Nigeria hacked my Pay-Pal account and drained my bank account of every penny, well almost every penny, they left a balance of $0.08. I had set my PP acct. to automatically draw funds from my bank acct. This was the fatal error. Since then, I’ve been extremely careful on the internet, when I use PP, I manually transfer funds, but it’s impossible to stop ever thief and criminal. Eventually, something WILL happen. Just take a look at the credit/debit card scandal at the Target stores, and others, this last Christmas season. It’s the largest growing criminal enterprise ever. I did get my money back from the incident I mentioned above because it was fraud, and the banks are required to protect you.
My apologies for the rant. I get carried away sometimes on things like this. It’s just irritating to be compelled to use Google Chrome to post here because of the problems IE 7 has with the WW2 Zone. Maybe someone can help me resolve them. My previous post asking for help only resulted in the suggestion I switch to Chrome…funny.

Two finished panzer IV's were forgotten in a cupboard after a project was scrapped some ten years ago. I took one of them out and simply resprayed a new scheme and then applied a whitewash and weathering. Zimmerit was burnt into the plastic with an engraver and all schurzen and related bracket work scratch built out of plastic card - Those were the days....
Thanks for watching
