Store Bought Flags

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Has anyone had any experience with this supplier of flags?  Modelflags.com

 

I'm in the process of making the Jack and Ensign for my HMS Vulture, and would like to know if they make realistic flags in case my attempts are failures.

 

If there is another supplier who makes excellent quality flags I'd appreciate some information.

 

:cheers:  Danny

Hi Danny

I bought flags for a couple of previous builds from this mob. I was happy with the quality and like the fact that they accept Paypal. Delivery from the UK took a couple of weeks. I intend placing an order with them for my current build as well as the Bounty and Endeavour.

Cheers

Steve

never had a problem with them. They list 100's of flags lettering,decals etc. in their catalogue, well worth a look.

Thanks for the replies guys. I'm halfway through hand-painting the flags at the moment, I'll decide whether to go with them or not when I finish them.

 

At least I know I have somewhere to fall back on if I'm not happy with them (so far, so good :) ).

There's also a couple of places online where you can download and print the flags.   A little finicky to print both sides in register but it can be done.  I used one of those sites (and lost my bookmark.. rats) for my Constellation flag.

Mark - I drew my own using Autocad and Paint. Then I printed it and used it as a template under Egyptian Cotton - I could just see through enough to get the outline of each color. I'm in the process of painting them using Acrylics.

 

I'll post the results in my build log.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
