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.
No I was totally unaware that Emhar's founder and owner died a couple of months ago. Sad news for us all.
Thank you for the link, Pa about Phillip Brook. It is truely sad news, especially at just 67. I've enjoyed buying many of his Emhar WWI sets, nice little updates to some of the early Airfix Artillery sets. I'm glad to see his heirs have kept up the momentum.
I haven't been able to find Bill Farmer's Home Page for some time now. Over the decades, he's made some outstanding sets. My personal favorite is the AWI British set sold under Accurate. I'm a big fan of those early sets made in the U.K. with the original soft plastic in great colors. Hard to find now but easy for my style of Conversions.
As for me, I'm loving all the new sets coming out, of which many are in nice colors and soft plastic. And I'll keep my fingers crossed for more future sets. OK, enjoy the rest of your weekend. Cheers!
Well I wont be buying them but not because of the colour but rather because I dont collect Napoleonics.... But if I did, it Would be the Peninsular Campaign and the Army of Sir John Moore....
I suspect these figures will be welcomed by many with an interest....
I've just sent off an order for the tadpole along with yet another whippet and male MkIV. Yes the latter does errors but Emhar's output has been eclectic with a variety of models that are not common else where. For that the late manufacture needs our grateful thanks. Like JB models there were small manufactures who produced models that they wanted to see. Some could argue that the tadpole was never in action but it was trialled unlike all those endless '1946' range of models of Nazi tanks that never got off the drawing board!
Certainly the current interest in WW1 was give a hefty shove by Emhar (and Airfix figures - the less said about their tank the better!).
As for the Napoleonic sets. I am not into that era but it is great to see a company ready to recognise the role played by the Portuguese and Spanish forces.
On can only hope that Emhar will continue to produce new and unique products. Lets hope the next (hopefully a bit quicker) will be the down sizing of their 1/35 MkV composite (with corrections) - so strange that, probably, the best heavy tank that was built in WW1 in is still ignored by the leading manufactures. A MkV with a crib is an iconic image of the Great war!
i dont like if plasti is in multible color- i wish that they all would have been made in white color so i can invent different camo to the figures!
i would BUY thouse kniths, british and spanish, french and portugal troops have some silly poses wich i dont like
