About Drum & Flag
Welcome to Drum & Flag - the plastic toy soldier specialists.
The store is run and owned by me - Rupert Mitchell - hello! In 2015 having clocked up over a decade selling on eBay I decided the time was right to launch my own store as well - hence this website.
My eBay shop is also called Drum and Flag and my user id is flagbearer101. In 2017 I registered my 50,000 positive ebay feedback from customers in over 80 different countries. Take a look at my ratings there to get some idea and reassurance of what it is like to trade with me: flagbearer101.
Prior to turning my hobby into a business I worked in book publishing which allowed me to travel a fair bit mainly to the USA and across most of Europe, including a two year stint living in lovely Amsterdam.
This of course had the major side benefit of enabling me to visit some fabulous model shops I would never otherwise have seen as well as taking in historic battlefields and military museums etc...
My aim is to send out your orders quickly, in the condition described and at a fair price. Swift and friendly communication is also something I strive for.
Brands I stock include Strelets, HaT, Waterloo1815, Dark Alliance, RedBox, Mars, Chintoys, Ultima Ratio, Zvezda, Airfix, Javis, Conflix, Italeri, Revell, Caesar, Pegasus, Vallejo and many others. I specialise in mainly plastic 1/72 scale and 1/32 scale figures and accessories but do have some 28mm items as well.
The vast majority of my stock is brand new. I do also buy up collections and sell vintage collectables and pre-owned used items from time to time. The non-new stock is clearly marked as such.
Wargamers, modellers, military history enthusiasts, collectors, painters, diorama builders and gift givers are all catered for and I share many of these hobbies myself.
My particular interests are Lord of the Rings in 28mm. In 1/72 scale - Napoleonics, American Civil War and WW2. And lastly Rome & her enemies in 54-60mm. I post hobby pics & info in my store blog from time to time: https://www.drumandflag.co.uk/blogs/news .
The mail order only business is run from Stone in Staffordshire, UK with parcels sent out all over the world. Parcels usually go out same day if ordered before 2pm Monday to Friday.
Most major credit & debit cards, Paypal and Bank Transfer / IBAN are accepted. Sorry but I do not accept cheques or postal orders.
