British Aeronef

I've been working on some Aeronef ships (Brigade Models figures) for a while now, and finally finished up the British fleet.

I figured people would be interested in the name placards.  Here's how I made them.  First, I made a table in a word processor, placing the flag images in each one.  I gathered the names from lists of period ships (Thank you, Wikipedia) and filled them into the table.  I then printed it onto a sheet of adhesive label and attached it to a piece of 0.010" plastic sheet.

I cut the  placards out with a x-acto knife and straightedge, then glued them to pieces of 2mm plastic "L" beam.

Lastly I superglued them to the back of the ships's bases.

Excellent work, old bean!

I too, shall advertise this blog on my own, and if you don't mind, I'll put a link there permanently as well.

Aeronef is my next probable scale/game project.

Great job on the painting, they look truly 'Ship-shape and Bristol fashion'
Ive opted for a Turkish fleet myself. Ill be happy if they come out half as nice as yours
