30th Foot (Cambridgeshire)

My GMB flags finally arrived and so able to complete my 30th foot. These are AB figures and are very good, however I do think the flag poles are a bit short. The pose is to blame as the bottom of the pole is touching the ground and not slotted into the carrying bit (whatever it is called) attached to the crossbelt. Even the flags made specifically for AB struggle with one of the poses. So the GMB flags needed quite a bit of triming. I do think they look nice as they are textured with fake folds in the cloth.


  1. They look very nice with their flags a-flying!

  2. Hi Ken,
    Your Brits look really nice, Have you tried any of the flags from Maverick Models?

    I have ordered a small stack today (Prussians and Saxons). They come with effect or plain. You can buy exactly the flags you want and the price is very good. And more importantly you can tell Stuart the size you need (for those tricky sized flag poles!)
    Keep up the good work

  3. Thanks for the kind comments Ray.

    Paul, do you have an URL, I can't say I've heard of this company.
