Anyone make wikiups in 15mm?
As opposed to tipis/tepees which are provided by a number of manufacturers.
Wikiups, in case you have not come across the term, were quick-build shelters of saplings and bark made by Native Americans and frontiersmen.
The young single males who had left the reservations for the 1876 campaign are reckoned by most writers to have slept in them, since they would not have belonged to a lodge. So I want to put some in the camp along the Little Big Horn.

Atlantic made them for their Apaches camps in 1/72nd scale. They would work in 15mm, and I am sure they have been recast.
