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.
Well, this is fantastic news! Where did you see this? Is it a large set or an "M" set? Long overdue! Actually hoping for 2; 1 infantry & 1 cavalry! Thanks Strelets! You are really making a lot of dreams come true of late!
It was announced on PSR's news page. I don't think it is a mini, it is listed in the standard sets, set 115. Right now the place holder just reads "World War I".
A Lawrence set cannot cover the subject, several sets could, just for the irregulars you need mounted on horse and camel, demolition and machine gun teams , infantry advancing and fighting ,prone ,kneeling and standing, plus command figures. I hope the sculptor does his best work ever on this/these set/s my fingers are crossed.
Well done Strelet, - nice suprise.
Again Strelet is producing yet another orginal set with all its possiblities. I agree that it needs to be several sets to do the subject juctice. If the standard of modeling is up to 9.2" gunners it has the potential.
Possibly producing more orginal sets is the way forward for other manufactuers - new subjects rather than just producing endless repeats for the 'Third Reich love-in brigade'.
Whether we like it or not most, too many of the mass market manufactures whose products dominate model shops/toy shops find it easier/and cheaper to keep using 40+ year old moulds and unfortunately they are showing their age with the amount of flash present. Certainly, this is a serious problem and must be a turn off for many new modellers.
Was this again an example Strelet looking at vaious forums to get an indication of what customers really want?
We certainly need a bare minimum of two sets for this subject- one mounted set and one of foot figures. Then some opponents such as Ottoman (Arab) irregulars would be nice as well !
