Doh... this is why some of you can't have nice things. Images removed that might encourage pirating. :/

So can this be made into a poncho? Or would it require quite a bit of work to manipulate it into one?

Well...since it's a paper cut out product, and printed only on one side, it might prove to be a little difficult and a little impractical to do so. I suppose you could try soaking it in diluted white glue and then draping and shaping it over a figure. But then, you also might just end up with a soggy mess!

Not really. It would take a lot more work than it would be worth. J's Work makes 3 different styles of German Zeltbahn that come in packages of 4 separate shelter halves that can be used individually or combined to form various shelters. They are made of paper as well and they have the design printed on both sides of the sheet. They would be a lot more practical for making a poncho on a figure. I did reviews on all 3 different versions last year.

Thanks,
Randy

That's funny! In the present review pics of a folded up Zeltbahn tent, the interior clearly shows that the product is only printed on one side (the outside).

What? I did the reviews of all 3 of the J's Work shelter quarters and I didn't fold any of them up and they do have color on both sides of the sheet. And I am the only one to have done a review on them. I don't know what you're talking about.

Ah, but the ones presently being discussed are by Medico D-tails, not J's Works. Be cool, man.

Yes...I know....it's my review...but you quoted what I said about the J's Works shelter quarters.

So I just don't know where you were going with your comment.

I have seen a number of those tents (big packages and small ones) and it comes handy compared to painting the stuff yourself. I haven't tried it myself to soak tent and wrap it around a figure, but i was considering that option.

As i mentioned early, this is how it looks like when it is applied. There are several images of small vignette in progress. If i had a female head, the dialogue would have been (as in Apocalypse now) "who are you?" "i am the next"
