Looks great! Personally I really want a floor and bug netting, but that's just me. HYOH, YMMG and all that! Of course that could all be added if desired.
I'm curious if you have tested the seam waterproofing. How well does the tape hold onto the silnylon? The beeswaxed thread idea sounds interesting. Have you given the tent a thorough garden hose test? You might want to keep doing that periodically during the life of the tent. If it lasts, it will certainly beat messy seam-sealing, and I'll bet that at least some silnylon tent makers would be interested!

OM, he said he uses a net tent with it. Anyways, great tarp! You did a great job. I too am interested in your seam construction and no need to seam seal. Of course, you are in Britain, so I am sure you will get plenty of rain to test it out. Keep us updated.
I am right in the middle of planning my next tarp build. I have the fabric, now I just need the time to put it together.
