This kit reproduces the original Quonset huts developed during WWII. The most common design created a standard size of 20 by 48 ft (6 by 15 m) with 10 ft (3 m) radius, allowing 720 square feet (67 m²) of usable floor space. Other sizes were developed, including 20 by 40 ft (6 by 12 m) and 40 by 100 ft (12 by 30 m) warehouse models. After the war, the U.S. military sold the surplus Quonset huts to the public and industry for $1,000 each. The 20ft x 48ft hut required less than one hour to assemble and I used CA for the test model. The 40ft x 100ft with double doors is next.
