I finished the second building of my Hue city project. Here it is next to the first one:

And some pictures of a squad of Marines searching the buildings:

Nice. How large of a table are you planning for this?

This is only the start of the project. My table is about120cm x 240cm. I will ad some more 3 story shop buildings and a school building. Probably a small part of the MACV compound or the entrance to the citadel .

The Citadel, one of the better known gates, would be quite something to see. Snag is of course that there is a dirty great river dividing the Old Citadel from modern Hue and the MACV compound to the south.

The photos on your website are great. Just needs a tank, Ontos, or a recoilless rifle on a mule to help your squad in street clearing. Love the sunglasses effect

I have the same kickstarter STL files and a similar project. Do you have other buildings you are using outside of the kickstarter?

I totally love the way you painted green on that house of the first pic. EXTREMELY realistic looking!

Nick I have the urban warfare kickstarter ,too and plan on using some italian houses from that. There were quite a few french colonial style buildings around in Hue and I think spanish or italian buildings could stand in for them.

A thought? Trees to line the sidewalk/pavement. Every image og Hue 1968 south of the river shows treelined avenues with garden walls and buildings in Colonial French style, just as you have shown.
