Welcome to the Strelets Forum.
Please feel free to discuss any aspect of 1/72 scale plastic figures, not simply Strelets.
If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
Thank you, Bert. Those are good and useful pictures.
The Airfix figures will always look small no matter what you compare them with because they are 1/76 scale. Also the Airfix figures are just bad in terms of accuracy (wrong and missing equipment, poorly sculpted and vague details). But that doesn't matter now that we have all these crew figures from Strelets; that's really a generous sized crew for a gun, compared with the 2 or 4 that we normally see manning the guns. There are enough that you don't have to mix manufacturers, so size and bulkiness don't matter so much.
Again, thanks for posting, bert.
Very informative pics.
The comparison with the HaT figures is more disturbing than the Airfix as the HaT sets have big crews ( 2 carrying field howitzer ammo though) and spare heads( 16 per set)and are exactly the right size. Actually a head swap with a spare Hat head might benefit the Strelets officer as the shoulders seem to match with the HaT figure. I will try it when I get a set.
I hope Strelets are not going into the 28mm/1-72nd scale hybrid size though larger than life heads have been a peccadillo of the Strelets sculptor for a while.
Good to be alerted to this.
An excellent set with an artillery piece and a large crew. Looking forward to getting my hands on the American set when it appears.
Pity that so many of the main modelshops like Modelzone in UK stick to Airfix, Revell and Italeri and ignore Stretlets current products! If they were more widely available I am sure there would be the interest.
If the range is sucessful I would like to see more WW1 artillery sets especially some German and especially French - M1918 field gun 155mm (yes RPM do make one but very expensive without the crew) would be perfect!
