There is a printed flag supplied with my current build (Panart armed pinnace) and it is really poor quality. What is your experience, please, of buying printed flags - which supplier and what is the quality like? Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the response, Zoltan. Have you used these on any of your own builds? - I am particularly interested in the quality as the one in my kit looks like it is printed on nylon and is terrible. Cheers.

I have never used them but my opinion that they are much better than the kit supplied flags.Also I might just ask on the german forum.

Has anybody recently purchased or known if schieffmodelflaggen is still in business? I emailed the seller for a order but haven't heard or received anything for more than a week.

Do you mean "Schiffsmodellflaggen.de" ? http://www.schiffsmodellflaggen.de/english/english.html
You have to know, that in Germany last wednesday was a public holiday (German Unity Day) - so it can be the case, that Hans-Jürgen made one week holiday and was not available....

When I ordered Schiffmodellflaggen flags via email there was no return communication. The flags just appeared in the mail. Then I paid through PayPal. Must be a shy fellow with quaint business practices. I would not worry.

In Germany most people have learned english in school, but not everybody feels comfortable with writing or speaking english ......
