I am currently constructing a large Quonset/Nissen Hut from scratch to build for a diorama. I thought i would post pictures as i go along for you to see. For those of you unsure what a Quonset/Nissen hut is a prefabricated steel structure, made from a half-cylindrical skin of corrugated steel. Originally designed during World War I, it was used extensively during World War II.

I will post more as and when i get time to do some work on it.

MDF cut and glued.
