Ship flags: cloth or paper/vinyl


Recommended Posts

Dafi's sail-making technique would also make nice flags ...


In another forum (http://www.shipmodels.info/mws_forum/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=163736&start=120#wrapheader) Jim Baumann discusses how he makes flags by printing the design onto ordinary white paper and then splits the paper to only retain the top layer. Two mirror-images of the print-out are glued together. These flags can be nicely shaped.


The figure-modelling fraternity uses tin-foil (better, but now difficult to obtain - in the old days chocolates were wrapped in it) or aluminium foil.
