Prussian in a Jungle Hut

Yes, that's right, there's a Prussian in my jungle hut.


Are you sure?


Yes, he's definitely a Prussian. What's he doing here?

I was too lazy to find a more appropriate figure (if I have one) while I was keen to get some WIP photos of my jungle hut. It's a Warbases building.

I've added a few internal details.


And a few outside.


I've added a few matchsticks to beef up the underfloor supports, a simple job even for the most ham handed modeller.


A mosquito net is a must-have for any whiteman endeavours here.


Lots of clutter here ...


... and there.


What's next?

Some more clutter, inside and out, and, wait a minute ... some jungle.

Watch this space.

  1. Well, now you've done it. You've created a hole in the space/time continuim. Now you're going to have balance the universe by plopping a native warrior into a Euro-scene (Zulu, American Indian, p'haps an Afghan tribesman)--one as nicely crafted, of course, as your splendid jungle hut.

    1. I expect someone in a big blue box will phase in and sort it out.

    1. I've made a few more since but they need painting before mounting.

      I've also had a go at a fishing net made from medical gauze dyed with tea.

    1. The plastic jungle went into place last night.

      It should get some static grass and some tufts later today.
