Revell 1/96 Thermopylae

Recommended Posts

Hi all well it's finally finished.
Just one question, I know which one goes on the main mast from the box art but where do these other flags go.

The large red ensign flies at the stern, usually from the peak of the driver's gaff. The 4 signal flags are the ship's call letters and will fly from a mizzen yardarm, usually the downwind to allow the flags to fly free of the sail and be seen. That red ensign with the crest in the fly looks a lot like the Canadian red ensign, but I really doubt that it is. I'd have to see it closer to be certain.

Tis a veritable maritime marvel; straight from the 'Onedin Line.' I did do a double take on the 4th phot looking at the rigging below mizzen top gallantĀ then realised it was a whirligig.
