    Julian, they are magnificent! But how do you make your flags? They're really impressive for the size!

    Hi Gary,
    Thank you. They are an order from a client from Australia. I do not know what rules he uses for his ships wargames or if it is merely collecting.

    Hi Dobbs.
    Thank you. I do the flags and pennants using paper. I print the flag, cut it out and stick it with white glue. When the glue is drying, I bend the flag using the metal part of a brush. With my fingers I press the flag against that metalic part, that way I bend the flag.

    Lovely as usual, ref the flags, do you use a laser printer or inkjet?
    Also I take it you cut the flags using a sharp modelling knife?

    Just see the video. Nice to see how you are working. How do you chose colors? From book ,documentation or just your inspiration.

    I use paper, I print the flag on a paper and then cut them with a cutter or modeling knife.

    When a ship of the line was going to enter combat it was common to dislodge the deck to obtain maximum space. Depending on the strategy to follow, it was appropriate to do it or not. To put the small boat behind the ship reduces the speed and alway a small boats on the deck is like a parapet for minor shots.

    By the way, thank you for your words

    I usually look in different forums, illustrations and modeling works, but I do not always find information about it.

    Hi, thanks for your comments. Excuse me for not answering assiduously, my father is very sick and now I'm focused on him. It will be a while until I recover the activity normally. I have neither desire nor humor for do it for now.
