6 Scale Icons True Scale Flag Series. Big Post Lots of Pics
 
6th Scale Icons Inc True Scale Flag Series.

It has been four and a half years since I lost all my 6 scale flag products in the fires, now at last I have been able to get them remade and will continue to make more if there is a demand for them. I had a few problems with the company that made these, the problems are now resolved and I have the flags in stock ready to ship. I am making a special offer on these flags, as they have taken over six months to get them to the production standard I required and I would like to get back some of my investment that was made when they were ordered.

The first flags in this series are the Adolf Hilter Personal Marker Standard, the German National War Flag (Battle Flag), correct title ‘REICHSKRIEGSFLAGGE’ and the German National and Mercantile Flag (Swastika Flag) formerly The "HAKENKREUZ FLAG"

Due to the mistakes made in the production of the German National War Flag and the German National and Mercantile Flag I have in stock a number of these flags with a black line around the reverse side. This line was put there by the manufacturer to assist in the sewing of the flags to the correct size, it made it easier for them. I insisted that there be now black line and the flags were remade without the line. As a special offer I will include one of these incorrect flags with each purchase of a correct flag. They are perfect on the obverse side, you get two flags for the price of one. See below for details.

For more details and history on these flags read my post on August 31, 2007

Note: All 6 scale flag sizes are based on real original flag sizes, most flags come in several standard sizes, to many to produce. I have selected in most cases the most common used sizes.

Adolf Hilter Personal Marker Standard
Set consists of a printed double sided flag made the same as the original, a modified German WW1 Lance as the flag pole the same as the original and a Infantry Flag Bearers Arm Patch.

Proposed Future Flag Production. Your input here will help me decide if it is worthwhile producing these flags.

US 48 Star Flags
I plan on producing the two most famous sizes, those that were raised on Iwo Jima. The first was a small size flag, which was taken down on the order of a General that wanted it as a keepsake and replaced by a larger flag, the more famous one. See pictures below. The full story of this can be read in "Flags of our Fathers"

British Union Jack
British Navel Union Jacks had grommets for attaching to flag poles, all other land based ones had a rope eye at the top and rope cord at the bottom. See Pictures below.

Japanese Flags
The Japanese in WW2 had two main flags, the Rising Sun Flag and the Red Circle Flag, commonly know as the Meat Ball Flag. Both types were put to many uses. Here are a few proposed flags.
