New aftermarket manufacturer Accurate Model Parts have introduced a line of new abd very exciting looking fabric flags to greatly enhance and add realism and beauty to your next build!
  • Revell 1:72 VIIC (built by AMP) with AMP Flag, PE, and Waterline Decals
FABRIC FLAGS

AMP announces scale Fabric Flags - a NEW product manufactured using superior technology and methods.

"NOTE: AMP use the Kriegsmarine flag as a sample because of the Revell VIIC kit popularity. AMP have reproduced the flag for historical accuracy, and NOT in support of any past or present political statements. AMP will reproduce any historical flag if it is for accurate modeling. See Company note about History & Politics in "Contact Us" section of their company website"


AMP fabric flags have many advantages:

*CRISP detail

*SEALED for no fray
(Rough handling only causes micro sawtoothing, instead of disintegrating cloth fingers)

*ACCURATELY researched for proportion, color, and detail.

Many scale flags - and full size repros - are the wrong proportions! They are based on the 3'x5' size. Though some real flags actually are 3'x5', it is often a “size of convenience” for the manufacturer.
NO “double duty” sizes -
Each AMP Flag size is based on a specific, real size, and is rebuilt for different scales, rather than one flag being used as both a 1:72 submarine flag and a 1:144 battleship flag

Professional PRINT INDUSTRY standards used, such as “bleed-to-edge” and trim marks, which means a higher quality product and easier for you to use.

Every kit contains TWO flags (because accidents do happen!)

AMP offer true, separate scale sizes, rather than one size that can be both a 1:72 scale submarine flag and a 1:144 aircraft carrier flag.

AMP not only recalculate for smaller scales, they tweak and adjust to accommodate for the smaller image on the same size weave. It means more precision for you and your model.


The Company is immediately offering the following flags for sale in 1:48, 1:72, 1:96, 1:144:

Flags range from US $5.95 to $12.95, EVERY kit includes two flags.

UK - ROYAL and MERCHANT NAVY - 5 sizes
WHITE Ensign (1864-Modern)
RED Ensign (1864-Modern)

and more!

All AMP flags will also be available in PAPER, which is the preferred medium for certain scales and sizes.

Paper stock 100gsm (28lb) silk-coated (smooth) paper and 80gsm (16lb) bond
Printed on a commercial digital offset press (Canon imagePress C1 at 1200x1200 dpi)

I'll have to check this out, I could use a flag for my U-boot and another for the S-Boot. It would be nice if they could crank out some 35th scale WW2 German National flags to lay over the backs and tops of German vehicles. I've done the paper thingie and it just don't quite cut it .

Yes, for my 1/72 kits I have sitting in the list I will be getting a set. I like thta they are doing the correct WWII US flag. You would be suprised how many 50 star flags are out there. But I love what they are doing. BZ guys!

Hey guys, thanks for checking it out. CUSTOM is EASY, happy to do a "armor" scale of 1:35. Just name the size flag and AMP can scale it to 1:35, which with the size and detail, should be beautiful. Drop us a line with your particulars at: amp.rokket.biz
