Welcome to One Day Wonders Part One, the first of an intermittent series of ishoos dedicate to terrain which can be built in a day or less! And here to start us of, Nissen Huts (or Quonset Huts, which are very similar). Yes, it's finally time to do something for all those WW2 players out there! Nissen huts are one of those buildings which most people associate with World War Two, and they really are both quick and easy to build - here's Grot to show you how in the popular 15mm scale as used in Flames of War!
Note: This is Novelty Siding; you can actually get corrugated iron plasticard, but I didn't have any...
And there you are! It's really very quick and easy to build a Nissen Hut... even though these are more like Quonset Huts (he said trying to appease the Nissen Hut Enthusiasts Club over the inaccuracies of the model!) In fact, with enough tubes, you could easily build a whole camp or airfield worth over a weekend.
Since this is a One Day Wonders project, you're bound to be wondering, how long did they take? Well, they were on the bench less than five hours - and a good chunk of that was waiting for paint to dry. These would easily fit into a lazy sunday afternoon or a few evenings if you prefer.
Well, stay tuned for next ishoo, when I have absolutely no idea what will be going on because I haven't decided yet! And don't forget the Reader's Choice Poll!
