    Hi all just a few pics of my tent as used at War & Peace revival 2014 at R.A.F. Westerhanger Folkestone "THE WORLDS LARGEST" military vehicle and militaria show

    Setting up in the brilliant sunshine!!!

    Calm before the storm!!!

    This was just before the biggest storm front I've ever witnessed  knocked it flat!!! (I had to park my Munga Jeep on top of the flattened sheets to prevent them blowing away!!)

    Most of the poles I was using were Swiss 1940's dated and in hindsight were not up to the task!!!(snapped them like dry twigs!!)
    Amazingly not too much damage was done apart from that... (just a few torn buttons really)


    MK II involves nice strong aluminium camo "poles"(not so original as the sectional wooden type but soooo much stronger!!!!)

    Looking forward to next year already!!!!!

    Nice shots! I don't think I've seen anybody use Austrian shelters to make such a big tent. Well done!

    I used 4 for a sun tarp at a military vehicle show one time and built my own supports out of dimensional lumber. It looked terrible, but it worked great Smile
