I need a 54mm Napoleonic era Bavarian flag for a diorama gift I'm making for my brother (we're of Bavarian decent). I'm using HaT figs (he won't care that they're plastic or if the detail is off).
I've tried the Flag Dude, but no response. The Napflags/Warflags quality would work, but I'm worried that they'll blur or pixilate too much when enlarged.
Any ideas, suggestions?

Maverick models can supply 54mm flags

Print off the flag you like from the Warflags site on a full-sized sheet of paper.

Place the printed flag on a clip board.

Hand-paint in the Bavarian blue.

Cut out, fold, and attach to your flag staff. I'd recommend replacing the plastic flag staff with brass rod or steel piano wire.

Go back and paint / touch up the areas of the two joins that do not match up perfectly.

Sounds difficult, but once you've finished you'll be delighted with the result.

great idea BUT The War Flags has no Bavarians. They refer you to Napflags. Problem is they require Paint Shop Pro 412 or 500 which I don't have.
Any chance you can help me out?

Sure. My email is the same as here I can send the pages to you. Put something about flags in the header so ah don't think it's spam <lol>
