    * Nano Mollusc Builder

    For £100 plus we will email you a complete set of Nano Mollusc plans including working drawings, photos and assembly instructions for every single component. With these plans, any halfway handy person can build their own version of this unique tent. All you will need is a domestic sewing machine and a standard set of tools such as hacksaw, power drill, angle grinder etc. We will naturally also keep you updated with bimonthly emails so you can keep abreast of any improvements and refinements going forward, invite you to the FB group and you'll also get one of those cut-out model Molluscs. We have no objection to you using these plans to market your own version of this tent - just give it a different name!

    * Standard Mollusc Builder

    For £200 plus we will email you a complete set of Standard Mollusc plans including working drawings, photos and assembly instructions for every single component. To make this tent you will need standard metalworking tools such as pillar drill, shears, cut off saw etc and access to an industrial sewing machine and a welder and you are going to have to be pretty damn handy or know people who are. You will also have to do a fair bit of problem solving in terms of sourcing (and bending) steel tube and the other materials in your own location but with these plans and a bit of hard work, there is no reason why, in a couple of months you shouldn't be able to wow your friends with your own self-built Standard Mollusc. Again, we will naturally also keep you updated with bimonthly emails so you can keep up with any improvements and refinements going forward. We'll invite to the FB group and you will get one of those cut-out model Molluscs as well and yes, we have no objection to you using these plans to market your own version of this tent or any other similar structure, if you wish.
