Good afternoon, does anyone know where I might be able to purchase small flags to hang from a 1/50 crane hook? Much like the ones we see on construction sites during Memorial Day and similar occasions. I am having a hard time finding something small and thin enough that it will dangle and "flow" just right. I have found a few small ones but the material used makes them look a bit on the crappy side. I appreciate the help.

Hi Shawn,

Yup, finding tiny flags that mimic the real thing in 1/50 scale. Tall order.

I'd try online retailer like Party City or Michael's first. Then if you still can't find what you're looking for. E-bay might do just a little better.

Somebody's got to make something you can use.

Edit:

USflagstore.com carry's a 2"x3" embroidered nylon flag and a 2"x3" polyester flag . Smallest found so far.
