The first Hue building

Here is the first Hue city building for my ongoing Vietnam war project. On the picture below you see an old scratch build building of my WWII collection. From a time  3D printing wasn’t available jet. On the left you see the start of the first building of a series of buildings from the citadel of Hue. think base line green. The STL file comes from a Kickstarter by WOW Buildings

I wanted the pavement to fit with my other buildings so I build it the traditional way, foam and scribing. The walls surrounding the building are from WOW ,too. The base is PVC .

Above you see a few pictures of the build I added some debris to the broken wall .

the base coated building shows clearly the problem with 3D printing. You see the different print layers.

But after painting these vanish more or less.

The finished building with plants and grass added:

For me the way to go is to combine 3d printing with traditional modeling. i think the finished building is presentable.
