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.
HaT sets always seem to get a certain number of bonus points from PSR. HaT does have some very nice figures, but some HaT sets that I found quite poor got rather high marks. I cannot ever recall seeing a bad review of a HaT product on PSR.
All depends what you use PSR for. for me its the pictures to see what the set is like. Their site over the years has encouraged and put me off may sets rather than buying a pig in a poke!
Like all people I have my biases - all those Pegasus/Caesar Soviet/Nazi stuff does nothing for me but clearly PSR rates these highly. However their Strelet heavy artillery comments have been highly critical - by I really like them. Everyone their on choice
The only thing they do not comment on is originality. looking at many of Strelets sets it would score 9-10 not so the majority of leading figure manufacturers!
Just looking at the WWI Turkish Cavalry, it would seem that obvious flash and ill fitting arms that one can see on the scans, score a 10 out of 10 for mould
PSR have a page devoted to the criteria they use for poses and other things see:
"Remember that this web site is all about reviews, which are necessarily dependant on the opinion of the reviewer" PSR
I am sure there are those who think they could do it better. A few have tried and packed in after a few desultory reviews. Some of us recognise that for all its foibles it is still pretty incredible for plastic figures to be reviewed with such clarity and yet there is always a personal insight or angle.
