ID:	1970859After a long and frustrating search for flags for my steam launches I was sat with my head in my hands. My daughter asked what the problem was and I said that I needed a large flag which would move realistically. “I can do that “she said. This is the result in silk.

    That's fantastic! I don't think I've ever seen this issue addressed as most model boat flags share the same heavy fabric as the flag on the 1/1 vessel and are very stiff as a result. I would have issue with the slight transparency of the silk but the ink added makes them only translucent--real flags are like that.

    How were these made?

    Would love to see some wind tests and also how they scale at half the size demonstrated.
    The complexity of a weapon is inversely proportional to the IQ of the weapon's operator.

    My daughter made them in her spare time at university(currently doing a course in textile and surface design).

    This is a test of the flag made by my daughter digital printing on silk.
