Medicos D-Tails Zeltbahn 16-man Tent
When we made our video on Medico D-Tails’ new Zeltbahn tent, we couldn’t help trying out the 16-man version as well.

So here is a quick photoset to show progress on the build. We were curious to see how far you can push the concept to make a larger tent. In effect, Zeltbahn could be configured in a number of ways. It was issued to each man as a personal protective item to shield the soldier from inclement weather. However, as it was modular, soldiers could attach their Zeltbahns together to form shelters of different sizes. One of the largest types was the 16-man tent configuration

The Zeltbahn set is cleanly digitally-printed onto thin paper. The definition of the camo scheme is excellent & the range includes different patterns – just like the real thing. As you can see, there’s colour variation within each individual pattern as well. Due to the reversible nature of the Zeltbahn, you can choose from the Medico’s catalogue which side or “version” best suits your own needs.

We quickly assembled the 16-man “summer side” tent (Ref: 016). It’s simple enough to do using basic tools like a sharp scalpel, a ruler & white glue.

For more detail, watch the video in our “How To” section to witness the 4-man tent being built or look at our step by step photo gallery here of the 16-man tent going together.

A fun project, that is pretty realistic, especially once weathered. The instructions recommend wetting the paper & using a jig to help keep the shape. In this case, we assembled it all dry so you can see the fit & finish when no water/PVA mix or used is used.

Enjoy!
