Charles tells me he adapted this stylized tower from photos of an Atlantic Wall Observation Tower and not necessarily a Flak Tower....

I thought something was wrong with the description Flak towers tended to be huge structures located in cities, often with air-raid shelters built into them. Try http://berliner-unterwelten.de/012/b/012b.htm for example, and click on Flaktürme in anderen Städten (near the top of the page) for some good construction photos showing just how big these things were (are, really, since several are still around).
