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.
ive bought a bunch of hat napoleonic french sets in grey,blue and tan.might want to double that french list if colors are a criteria now.
of course im not sure if light grey and lighter grey for germans would count.
The listing doesnt include the Type1 HO/OO Airfix sets (2) either though it does include other nominally HO/OO sets such as Atlantic, if other sets were also included.... Preiser 1/72 has already been mentioned with 14-15? Infantry sets, and of course currently not counted but still "Plastic" the special painted sets from Kaiser err... Caesar....I'm sure there are plenty of others probarbly long forgotten....
The truth is the total is way greater then the WW2 listing of PSR allows for or shows as far as nominally 1/72 Plastic figures go.... did Baravelli produce any German Soldiers does anyone know? and what about Japanese Manufacturers or Resin(Plastic, according to PSR and indeed it is) firms such as Milicast etc?
Anyhow if you just want to include only 1/72 soft plastic(PP PE etc) sets as designed then only sets produced from the period of the original Esci production would actually count, as Atlantic and Airfix were not originally marketed for 1/72 specifically but 1/87-1/76(HO/OO) this equally applies to the other ranges Napoleonic French and Romans etc, but probably the balance wouldn't change much overall
Have a good Day
if i multiply all the french sets in the different colors they come in,doesnt excel say they come close.
then i say again, the french win.
vive la france!
46 sets that can come in light blue,medium blue,dark blue,tan,grey, and silver.en viola,the permutations boggle the mind.
vive la emperour!
The Mighty 1000-Year Reich (12 years and 3 months) sets also come in different colours. 123 multiplied by "light blue,medium blue,dark blue,tan,grey, and silver" is larger than 46 multiplied by "light blue,medium blue,dark blue,tan,grey, and silver".
Even if the WW2 "Germans" only came in 3 different colours, a whole half of what you claim for your nappies, they would still outnumber the Nappie French (or "french" as you call them), 369 versus your 276.
as much as id like to have germans in more than 1 color,im afraid there isnt many sets that come in 2 different colors.the reprints from esci to italeri come to mind with 2,but thats about it.it wasnt known as a colorful uniform period i guess.
so vive la france!
