    Default Flag Pole, Flag Half-mast?

    A dear friend who was a model railroader passed away recently. I want to make a scene to pay my respects. He was retired colonel in the army. I am trying to find a way to fly a flag at half mast.

    If I could find a empty flag pole, I could take another flag and height adjust it. I know his family would appreciate the gesture.

    I'm thinking using one of MSGSapper's vehicle on a platform, with the US flag and armed services flags in front at half mast. I took the idea from our local American Legion. Just need a way to fly the flags properly.

    Thank you for your effort. I hope you can find the necessary pieces. Please remember that "half-mast" should be more like 2/3-mast or slightly higher.

    There is a basic pole on DLC;

    If it's not broke, don't fix it.

    Thank you for the information. I finished the scene by overlaying the pole over the flag and adjusting the height. I think it turned out acceptable.
