Finger and Toe release Quonset Hut
Finger and Toe have released a sci-fi Quonset Hut paper terrain kit.
From their announcement:
Finger and Toe Models announces the release of Quonset Hut, our first model packaged with both 15 and 28mm versions.
Remember that terminal in Yak-Yurt Mongolia where you left your true love in the blizzard to fly off in search of the Lost Soma? Or the base on Paliwenu Atoll where you guarded the equipment from the second Philadelphia Experiment? What about Epi Centauri IV during the Elphisinor Bug Hunt? All Quonset Huts.
Quonset Huts were intended as temporary structures to create bases quickly. This model represents a 20’x40’ version with corrugated steel ends, instead of the plywood found on the smaller, original versions. The model is actually a shell that fits over the support frame on the base: you can remove the shell to reveal the interior. The support frame can be “distressed” to create a ruined base. The 28mm version has a four inch by inch inch footprint, while the 15mm is 2.5 by 4.75 inches.
This is a quick and easy model. If you ignore the optional window shades, there are only five pieces: a base, the hut’s roof/sides, the two ends, and the support frame.
Quonset Huts can be any type of structure–from an airport terminal, base operations, barracks and offices, even a research lab plunked down in Antarctica! The design is so simple, some version will likely continue to be used for many decades to come, so even your orbital drop troops might find it familiar.
Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with smoosh assurance: if ya’ll smoosh your Quonset Hut, a new set waits your summons from hard drive and printer.
