New Flags for review

I've posted pictures of flags from The Flag Dude, GMB, Maverick Models and now I want to post some pics of flags from Adolfo Ramos. What I decided to do was order his best or what he calls a "complete" flag. So far the largest size you can get this in is his 30mm size. The flags are all paper, no cloth/material options yet. The price of the flag increase with size and option - naturally. Below are the pictures of my first order - Seven Years War flags. I ordered a set (2 flags) for each battalion of the Prussian IR #1 regiment, 2 Austrian flags and he also sent me a single French regimental for La Reine. I think you'll see that these flags are as good as any on the market. With the 'complete' flag order you will get the flag mounted on a pole, with the proper finials, the pole is painted, and the flag edges are touched up so no white from the paper is showing. The price per complete flag is 6.10 Euros with his entry level flags under 1 Euro. I think the quality for the price is there as compared to the other flag makers. I also feel that Adolfo's work is right up there with GMB so it is well worth the cost considering you have a finished product when it arrives! Anyway, let me apologize ahead of time for the pictures. I'm sure my camera can take great pictures but the person behind the camera, maybe not so much.

I can't wait to see how these flags would look with the Black Hussar Miniatures SYW Prussians!

So my final thoughts are that you cannot go wrong with any of the 4 flags makers I've listed and by having choices you'll get what you want.
