Naval Ensigns

Eduard 1:350

Quite a few maritime kits these days provide a selection of flags and pennants that are printed on paper. These can look ok, but generally always have a tired well worn look, like they’ve been left in the sun for a few months. Eduard have now countered this look with the release of this pre-painted steel sets, which supersedes the etched brass set previously available. Both sets are beautifully painted and will look great on either an ensign staff or in the battle ensign position. To use, just cut the chosen flag from the sheet and wrap it around your favourite rigging material. How you get the wavy flapping effect is entirely up to you, but it may take a bit of experimentation to get the desired effect.

 

(53208) IJN Flags – Contained on a single sheet, there are twelve large Ensigns and twenty four Naval Jacks. They can be used on any vessel in the Imperial Japanese Fleet.

(52209) US Ensigns WWII – Another single sheet with three very large US Ensigns, so large in fact I had to check they weren’t 1:200 scale. Probably to be used on Battleships, Fleet Carriers and perhaps Large Cruisers.

Conclusion

These are very nice and easy to use sets which would certainly add a dash of colour on your warships.
