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.
As a P.S. to your comment and mine also below, I don't think there are any good WWII Brit Sets in Helmets on the market, even now.
Right now, there is no doubt in my mind this is the right time for you to make a really awesome WWII Brit Infantry Set, with all the D-Day action poses in Helmets.
My honest feeling is, there is no such thing as an Ordinary Brit Soldier. Throughout history, these fine personalities have risen to challenges the times required of them. Much of our world's values today are owed to the Ordinary Tommy (is this an appropriate Nick-Name?). With this thought in mind ...
Most importantly, color-wise, if you decide to do so, please make them in either Tan or Brown color, the camo color they made famous even today - not Confederate Gray in this case.
And even in a Mini-Set, a casualty pose, charging, shooting, bayonetting, Rifle-butting, standing throwing a grenade, and only one prone shooting pose.
Beyond this, a Large Command Set to include all the Allies having a Pow-Wow to strategize the D-Day Scenario.

I agree with this request also.There are so many uses for British infantry. Europe;North Africa;Singapore;Burma etc..Brits are an army Strelets should consider doing especially to go along with their upcoming Japanese sets. I think there would definately be a market for them. Best Regards! Cappy
Yes,please I really love WWII British Infantry!!!!A must!!!!
While totally agreeing with your arguement I would suggest that British 1939-41 - the bit of the European WW2 that most figures and avf manufacturers have ignored - need considering. This period when the Germans and Soviets worked closely to carve up Europe between them seems to be white washed out history!
More importantly there are no early Ww2 British available of this period except the Russian mini sets!

Nice comment although most countries have common soldiers they can be proud of. Pity that history is mainly written by the officers! I was walking in the Black Forest a long time ago when this elderly German gentleman called me a "tommy" - I considered it a compliment!
