I'm starting to think about sewing a DuoMid clone, but I'm unsure of a few particulars, because I've never seen the tent close-up. My questions at this point are:
1) The front on the tent seems very taut in the pictures. How is this achieved with the vent at the top? Is there a strap that continues from the zipper to the apex?
2) Are the edges catenary cut? If so, to what degree? From the taut pitches I see on the website, I assume there is a curve to the seams, but just want to get a sense.
3) What is a good weight of Silnylon to be using?
I've included a picture from the MLD website here for reference:
Thanks for your help!
