    ....no, this is not a poll, but a plea to always use a coaster - and not just any coaster, you should get something new and interesting, like these:

    I'll take any requests, if you find me the insignia, or a link to it...

    (All insignia hand-drawn by myself in vector format by the way, so they can be scaled up or down as needed)

    They are sets of four the same, just under 4" square with rounded off corners.

    I don't have a 'finished product' photo as there doesn't seem to be one on deviantArt... :mad:

    I think I may have to order a set for myself just to take a photo. They are described in the blurb as having a 'cork base', so I'm guessing they are reasonable quality...

    I will add JG301 soon.

    I updated the page today with some USA squadrons, and I'll give you a heads up when RAF ones are done, and again I will take reasonable requests (ie: any aircraft in the gallery, or that you have seen me post here, and if I don't have the squadron logo, I will ask for help tracking it down)

    Just a final note on the look/layout - there is a good amount of overlap (presumably for the folding process) so the excess space round the edges will go and the whole should be better balanced when it's actually made into a coaster...

    Cheers

    Bill

    I have done them in the past, but I think if I updated the design to be more like the coasters, then it could work...

    These are the 'ones I did earlier'

    Well here is a '1st draft' and a chance to influence the design - I will take your thoughts on this for the layout of all the mats I make from now on - so I'd like opinions on:

    Background colour.

    Fonts for top and bottom text blocks.

    Position and size of squadron insignia and the plane.

    Overall layout and any other comments.
