Had some more time off from work so I'm just about finished with the hut. Here is how the thatch roof turned out. Just a dab of glue here and there and that should be it.

That is awesome. I work with paper everyday - but not like that! Nice!

Tikiskip--LOL

Trav, that is just awesome. Seriously, seriously cool. I'd love to see a diorama village with more of those and a cool painted scenic background. Ok, you have your orders

That is darling - nice work. Do you have stock in Band Aids though? At first I thought you had it sitting on an outdoor grill - I see it's a table though - PHEW!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Skip, my wife and I laughed our butts off when I told her about your post. I have thought about a diorama but would have to scale the size down a bit. From the start I also thought about a flicker light inside and it would be easy to do. Might look cool hanging over the bar. Thanks again everyone.

Started another one. Small scale. Just in the early stages. Maybe the start of a small diorama.

Thanks for the encouragement guys. This hut is tiny. The windows are just shy of 1/4 " square. Here is another progress shot.
