You can't see the top of the hat very well here, but it is a piece of paper about 1.5 mm square. For reference on the pennant, that is a Pendraken 20*40 base so 2mm thick.

Getting the paper cut to the right size is tricky in 1:200,as tolerances for the visual is so fine.

Can you get a hole punch? I know there's crafting punches that do many shapes and sizes, I have coveted them in Hobbycraft before...

Mini nail clippers are proving the best way to do the v shape. You know exactly where the blade is before cutting.

A black line across the top of those pennants to hide the white paper would really lift them Wink Smiley

Bugger, missed it. Took a photo then realised under light from the angle you could see it; I did check as I glued.

Have gone back after this one was taken, shows up more in photos. You'll also notice glue not fully dry.

Thanks. I think having a blob of PVA for the hat top fix is better than a smear- you can't see it here, but it gives it shape.

I'm always astonished that so many people ignore that step with paper flags.

Very carefully. Last lot I did were 15mm Crusaders (II's and III's). The major problem is sizing things right, I have a load of 15mm 432's with huge Union flags on them. One thing you might try is the punchings from a comb binder...
