Looking for appropriate buildings similar to those in the movie "The Quite Man". I have been looking quite a while now and have not been really pleased with what I have found.

The Quiet Man? Hmmn, as fas as I can recall, row homes would do the trick.

Are you looking for urban or rural? And in what scale?

I eventually moved on in my gaming, but I remember frustrations involved with wattle and daub (or plaster over something) walls and thatch roofs. You find them--or found them--from southeast Asia to Ireland, but no one seemed to make a range so designated. I picked up some from Vietnam ranges, and WWII in Ukraine, among others, but it was always just a house or two in a larger range.

If you're looking at 1/72 to 28mm, I'd say have a look at Wargame Vault and consider mixing and matching walls and roofs.

Might try a model railroader web site in Ireland, Scotland or Rural England. If they exist. They should know.

I am working on a similar project in 1/72. I have been using card buildings for model railroads from the UK. Also, take a look at Irish cottages on Etsy.
