In WWII would they have medic nissan huts and what would the paint job be on them?

I see no reason why not

In terms of paint job, I suppose it depends where is was, if was away from the fighting then it might have been painted white with red crosses - more likely though to have been camouflaged with some form of red cross identification. Where as if it was a front line aid station then it probably wouldn't look any different from other huts/buildings - camouflaged possibly - although I suppose a a front line aid station is unlikely to have been a Nissan hut.

Unlikely in the the jungle. As far as I am aware most of the buildings in the jungle would have been temporary structures made out of bamboo and the like, If you are after an authentic jungle medic hut/aid station, then the 'Airfix 1/76 Jungle Outpost' set might be a good place to start.

I would go with a timber structure for a 'behind the front' position.

Even a tent could of been used for a First Aid post.

NISSEN huts were quite common in the UK although Medical blocks (hospitals ?) were the larger 24' base NissEn

For front line, I'd say it would have been more likely for the First Aid Post to be a tent  :idea:
