Royal Navy Signal Flags

Eduard 1:200 (53232)

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 set. The 36 flags  are beautifully painted and will look great either as a coded message from a halyard, or even on a ship dressed overall.  Unlike the 1:350 set this set in 1200 does not contain Pennants or alter course pennants which s a disappointment.

Conclusion

This is a very nice and easy to use set which would add a dash, or even a lot of colour depending on how many you use. Please note however these flags are based on the 1937 Royal Navy signaling Handbook so for use on ships from that time up until the new, revised handbook was issued during the war, where the flags for P and Q were swapped over.
