This is he method I have been using for a while now, love it. Chris Floodburg gives a nice tutorial here. Chris Floodberg's Flags
Try taking a photo of whatever flag you wish.Save it in a computer as a picture.Open the drawing program integral with your operating system.Transfer the picture to the program. Adjust the drawing to scale. Capture it and reverse. Abut the two and print the result on the thinnest paper you can manage. Fold over a rigging line, glue with white glue.Trim the result and apply. It can be folded and draped to get a good optical result. Been doing this successfully for years.Perhaps not the greatest solution,but with some practice you might get satisfactory results.
For 1/350 scale, we solved the issue of detail by PE, we solved the issues of PE with 3D printing, we solved the rigging problem with EZ thread/nylon thread but flags? To have a model that looks museum quality with the flags makes it look like a toy. Can anyone solve this? Is there a technique that makes them look real to scale?
