I've found the Tamiya single pup tent kit, but do we have any others?

I don't want a printed poncho tent, but rather a "mash" style, or even something between that & a pup. sort of a "pup and a half" tent.

thanks for those suggestions. the Viet Nam diorama is truly amazing. I like the verlinden tent better than the revell. wonder if FOG would have one around? I think they buy estates and second hand kits and now are starting verlinden production.

the other link is promising, too for an in-between size tent. including it's size & over-scale, it might fit an odd corner.

thanks again

I agree the vacform tent included in the Revell set looks toylike...

On a side note, here's another tent made by Amera, a bell tent :

thanks for bringing that to attention. I haven't had time to snoop around the linked site yet.

the shape of that cone is interesting from a composition standpoint and would certainly add visual interest. I have always assumed structure would be an internal matter, but with the addition of stakes, guy ropes, & toggles, there would be quite a bit to take in. even adding a plate for a stove on the far side would clutter up the blank surface.

as a sidenote, those fellows sitting in front appear to be waiting to determine who goes inside first. reminds me of "beans & franks night" at scout camp!
