Now that Flag Dude has closed, I'm looking for 28MM Napoleonic flags. I really like GMB, but I'd like some cloth types, cotton, silk or something similar. Can anyone offer suggestions.

Thin white cotton cloth and knitting hoops. T-shirt fabric is too thick, by the way. White boxer shorts are about right.

If you're going to cut up your boxer shorts, remember to take them off first.

Just use the remains of the pair that your wife ripped off you last night!

What? She didn't….?

Yes and clean the boxer shorts before you start painting.

But, wouldn't the non-white parts be considered primed?

I use fabric sheets for an ink jet printer

There is a paper cloth (cloth paper?) available for use in a printer but the printer must be an ink jet type. Don't try it with a laser printer as it just won't work. That is what Rick used for his "cloth" flags.

Maverick models will make flags on silk or cotton for you

If you can find it drafting linen (the stuff the used for engineer drawings years ago). It is like the cloth that money is printed on. You do need to wash it out and remove the lacquer from it first. I made a couple flags from it, until I decided that printing them out on paper was easier and could always reprint one if needed.
