Hi all,

I've recently fitted some Peter Pig's Range 18 ships from my own collection with Minairons Miniatures' ensigns and flags (this is one of the few good things derived from owning a miniature company grin ).

This is what some selected samples look like after the flag hoisting:


GALLEON

Galleon I

Galleon II

Galleon III

Galleon IV

--

FRIGATE

Frigate I

Frigate II

Frigate III

Frigate IV

--

BRIG

Brig I

Brig II

Brig III

Brig IV

--

Ships have been fitted 1701-1785 Spanish war ensigns and flags for a future War of Spanish Succession game I'm planning (a set to be released yet, BTW; that's another advantage of owning a miniature company grin ).

The ensign sets alreadly released by Minairons are those you can watch in the following link --mostly belonging to 17th century rather than to 18th: minairons.eu/en/78-1-600-scale-17-century-naval-flags.

Some more sets in the pipeline, as it can be watched here: minairons-news.blogspot.com/p/pipeline.html, and even more in Wishlist awaiting adhesion: minairons.eu/en/content/4-what-would-you-like-to-see-next.

Thanks for watching!

Very nice. I have quite a few PP ships and have left them "Au naturel" for ruggedness but I'm quite tempted now to add some flags and pennants

I'd been wondering whether (hoping!) you'd be sizing your new flags also to be suitable for the Peter Pig ships – these look wonderful.

Nice rigging too!

After this trial, I firmly believe our flag sheets do conform perfectly to PP larger vessels. I think they do fit to smaller ships too --as the schooner below:

Admittedly, in this later case proportions might be arguable to some, so it could have been used instead a mast flag as ensign, while a jack as mast flag.

Another example is this xebec from Shapeways, that I've decorated as a 1640-1653 war Catalan blockade runner:
