As the paint on the flight stand and the Hueys isn't dry jet I thought I show you pictures of the next project. A vietnamese hut for a jungle village. As I got a 3D printer for x was I thought to use it to print a hut for my jungle terrain. Or a complete village? Not sure jet.

As I didn't find an appropriate STL online I designed the hut myself using tinkercad.

Here are the pieces I designed:

Here are pictures of the printed version. Glued to a base.

incredible how rapidly the technology has evolved. Even more impressive that you designed this yourself. I imagine, with the hard part done, you can just knock these out in no time. The version on stilts that you mentioned I look forward to.

I am equally impressed by the scenic accessories all stored away in the background of photos. You are better organised than I am…….

That looks pretty good. I recall that no 2 buildings looked the same. I even remember that one hooch had an entire wall made of C-ration cartons!
Your roof has a nice 'messy' look about it. Roofs seemed chaotic, with patches everywhere.
Nice!
Oh, and there where these little Buddhist prayer sites or alters in the oddest places. Kinda like this:

Looks like a nice little modeling project to add to the terrain on the board.

Sometimes in Europe one could have run across a little Christian Shrine along the roads too. But as time went on they were few.
