Re: Wanted tan zelt tent halfs

They are French.
The Germans, non/para military, used some in a darker almost brown colour.
You often see them used on dak displays but they are quite wrong for that.

Re: Moutain tent - meanwhile 3 years late........!

Not strange at all.
The story is they stopped paying their contractors, the people who made them for them.
So they stopped making them for Pathfinder.
The man who made the tents for Pathfinder still makes tents.

Re: So...why is this forum dying on it's ass?

I thought the point was that when your own research let you down you asked the forum rather than it being you first port of call?
I prefer to find things out for myself so it might just be me?

Re: Full SS Zelt Set

Looks like the SoF sets include the Swiss pole sets?
They are the wrong size to build a German zelt tent. You need to cut one pole down to about a quarter of its size.
The pegs don't work so well with German zelts either, ignoring the fact that both are just plain wrong. Farby as.

Re: Zelt

Do you mean by full set enough sections to make a tent with poles and pegs of just a single zelt with poles and pegs?

Re: SMW Plane tree zelts

How do you propose to build that with triangular zelts again?
I doubt anyone has tried to build one as its not a WW2 type of tent.
Not in any of the manuals.
