They appear to be Philippines inspired but provide a good basis for conversion

Believe it or not, the "Nipa" and "Kamalig" huts remind me of old photos of elevated workers' quarters on my grandfather's coffee and tobacco farms in central Puerto Rico. A couple of those still had the old straw roofs instead of the newer sheets of corrugated metal. Of course, the old photos are from the time my Mom and her sisters were born, so back in the 1920s.

So these might potentially work as huts (big bohíos) for campesinos in Cuba and Puerto Rico during the Spanish-American War.

Gentlemen!

These are FAR less expensive, much easier to assemble, require no painting, and come in both 15mm (shown) and 25mm versions:

And they are indeed Filipino in style, intended for 1898 and later.
