A fantastic piece of work there Taff, looks great outdoors with the figures!!

Also like the Adventurers hut idea, the fellas look very cosy in there.

Wow! Very cool! That hut is amazing! and so flexible...it could be for the Viet Nam era, for general adventurers, for a Coastwatchers hut in WW 2, for a Japanese advanced HQ building or radio station. Your execution is excellent, your methods are very realistic.

One question I have for you--what did you use for the roofing material? Is that excelsior, the packing material for breakable, fragile items, or something else?

Thanks!

Cheers B.G, the roofing material is coir fibre, the stuff they use for lining hanging baskets, planters etc.
