I don't know about resin, I just make them out of GS or BS.

There is also Battle Flag and Little Big Men Studios that have a variety of high quality flags in different historical patterns.

I'm going to try these. I tryed GS casting some Rough rider flags but they didn't turn out. And all the historical sites just have paper prints.

You could try a tube of tomato paste, cut it down the side and draw out a template. The advantage is that the material isn't going to tear, and its relatively easy to shape, and its easy to cut.

I think you can use aluminium sheet from hobby/craft store if you find it repulsive to destroy a tomate paste tube wink.gif

Here's some other possibilities:

This guy put the tomato paste tube trick to good use. See here:

He's the one responsible for this rather nice diorama from GDUK last year.
