Review: CorSec Engineering Quonset Hut

We got in a really cool looking 15mm Quonset Hut from CorSec Engineering for review.  These were seen all over the place in World War II, and is a key piece of terrain for an Allied airfield or other semi-permanent installation.

The kit is pretty simple and comes in a flat plastic bag.  The core structure is MDF, which makes it very tough.  You get some plastic end pieces and the roof with some pretty good detail.  I did zero trimming or other preparatory work on the kit.  The assembly was not difficult, but it did help to watch the assembly video that CoreSec provides.  I think it took me about 5 minutes to get it all together, including drying time.  Please make sure you use a good superglue, as the roof tends to try to pop off.

All the pieces included in the kit.

I painted this up with some Krylon flat camouflage and dry brushed with Green Grey.  I hit the doors and the window frames with USA Tan Earth (874) and then a little Sepia Wash.

It would have been super smart to figure out a way to cut some blister plastic and glue on the inside for windows.
Infantry and Tank for scale.  Looks spot on to me.
Conclusion: 10/10.  I can't really think of anything to complain about here.  It would be nice if the roof came off, but I am not really seeing how that would work exactly.  Weighing in at just USD$7.99, I am not sure the value can be beat.  Easy to assemble, easy to paint and easy to put on the table for Flames of War!
