nearly complete scaled prototype

The first design prototype (1/2″ = 1′ 0″ scale) is nearly 90% complete. The final touches will include guy line tension cords and stakes that will keep the fabric taught, and assist in keeping the tent rigid in high winds and extreme weather conditions. This is the model that will be tested in the Aerospace engineering wind tunnels on Thursday Feb. 2. A little work left to do and it will be ready for testing.
