About Drum & Flag
Welcome to Drum & Flag. 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. Take a look at my ratings there to get some idea and reassurance of what it is like to trade with me: flagbearer101. In 2017 I registered my 50,000 positive ebay feedback.
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 Europe, including a two year stint living in lovely Amsterdam. This of course had the major side benefit of visiting some fabulous model shops I would never otherwise have seen as well as taking in battlefields and museums etc...The Heeresgeschichtliches Military Museum in Vienna being a favourite.
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 offer include Vallejo Game Color paints, HaT, Strelets, Zvezda, Airfix, Javis, Conflix, Italeri, Revell, Caesar, Waterloo1815 and many others. Scales covered include 1/72, 1/32 and 28mm.
The vast majority of my stock is brand new. I do also buy up collections and sell vintage, pre-owned collectables from time to time. The non-new stock is clearly marked as such.
Wargamers, modellers, military history enthusiasts, collectors, painters, diorama builders, gift givers and others 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.
The mail order only business is run from Stone in Staffordshire, UK with parcels sent out all over the world. Most parcels go out same day if ordered before 2pm Monday to Friday.
Most major credit & debit cards, Paypal and Bank Transfer / IBAN are accepted.
