ML196 Fairmile B - Landing Craft Control

Recommended Posts

I knew I'd seen them some where

 

Size wise I reckon British Code Set B scale 1:90 to 1:180 . Small craft smaller flags.

Check the flags you need cos the set doesn't include all the letters ,  go figure. Beec I'm sure also do ensigns

I'm liking everything about your build Rob. :clap2:

 

It's amazing what a coat of paint did to those Flota-nets.

Thanks Kev.  I had seen these but seem to have a mild aversion to BECC fabric flags - I have a couple but have never plucked up courage to use them.

Have you?

Eduard do some etched flags in 1/350 that are very attractive but sadly not 1/72.  196 is flying some flags in the original pic but it's hard to see what and I know nothing about how they were used on Coastal craft.

I must admit I've only seen the larger ones, the fabric used was a bit coarse. I'll keep looking ...>

 

FYI Naval Signal Flag circ 1943

Your last pic Q196, the flag hoist starts with a Q and most probably below that is her pennant number (196)
