The Schwartze Sonne,
But they've had plenty of time to build big, strong elements[...] the main building is about 1.2 kilometres in diameter
Nazi Moon Base overview: This is a draft render of the scene. The camera angle & picture framing quite close to final.
Crusader: How about if the barracks would be dug to the walls of the crater? Windows or perhaps balconies at the crater walls?
Anon: How about gun turrets on the edge of the crater in case of unlikely invasion (in war everything is thought always when not if). Maybe different type of AA guns from 20mm to 88mm in hided bunkers.
And mostly everything else except fortress could be deep undergroung so on the surface there would be just big hatches (for battle fleet) and some smaller constructions and exits for surface/short range vehicles.
All material can´t be used so surely big amounts of rocks would have been brought to the service.
And since there´s ice on the moon surely nazis would have used such resource. They didn´t knew when they came 45 but maybe they found some during construction or on surveillance missions. There might be open mine on the small sector of the crater´s side. Deep in the shadows of the walls so sun can´t meld ice. With big machines cutting giant ice blocks and then moving them to the top of the assembly line which would leed to underground factory.
Jengelh: That looks pretty much like Albert Speer's Halle des Volkes/Ruhmeshalle (and even size of the dome seems to match Smile ) plus Coronado's military buildings.

Well, I'd assume that in order to build their huge machinery, they will need resources. So they must have some mining facilities somewhere, and refineries where the ore is processesed. And of course, some factories huge enough to contain the huge machinery.
Where they should be... well, seeing that they are using technology from the 40's, I assume they would indeed construct plenty underground to save on the costruction of 'expensive' structures with the necessary radiation shieldings and environment support (in the term of resources - I really wonder if they would have currency seen they are a military base. Maybe they simply work for a common goal and just get what needed... in a kinda communist fashion???)
But then again, what if the machines are just TOO huge to be stored altogether underground?
Then they could be in some hangars above the surface, somehow camouflaged and of course also well-guarded by gun turrrets in case of enemy attack since being sooo big, they'd make a quite easy target for the enemy! Wink
Even the turrets themselves could be coming out of hatches from the ground and be built on underground rails so that they can be moved around the perimeter of the base in case of need....
Just my two cents. I don't have time to make any sketches right now but a month is long, so I may actually get to it. Smile

That e-mail subject looked almost like spam - try something softer next time.
I got in my mind something like this http://www.clas.wayne.edu/multimedia/us ... %20Pit.jpg
How about a cross-over between that and Naquadah-mines from Stargate SG1? I couldn't find any images from Naquadah-mines, but they're pretty much half craters, or crater walls.. I'll look for the image later, when I have time...
About that window-/balcony-idea, they could be just tall towers of black windows, like some tall buldings stairwells have nowdays. On sides of those towers, there could be single windows or balconies at the places of big rooms or officers apartments. Maybe those balconies would have AA-guns? Also there have to be bunkers on the walls.
The reason why the installation was builted tells what does it look like.
Was the base builted so that the National Socialism would survive and be
restored when the time is right?
Or was it builted so that the nazis could attack Earth from there?
Or take over Earth and convert the population into Nazism?
The Dev. team won´t probably tell these things because it might reveal parts of the storyline but I wanted to bring up my point of view.
