As you might have picked up on, I’ve taken the jump with 1:600 scale Ironclad models. I’m reasonably satisfied with the workmanlike paint jobs I gave them, but I’m working on some finishing detail like masts, some rigging and a flagstaff. Flags proved to be pretty easy actually.. I simply found a vexology site, copied and resized the graphic, flipped it over and pasted several on a sheet.
I admit they are probably a tiny bit overlarge for this scale, but I wanted the flags to be instantly recognizable.
The masts are made from floral wire, and I drilled the holes with a pin vise. If you are interested in doing this for your fleet, here’s some flag files:
