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.
Right, the C96 and the revolver are 4XL-size. The latter could also represent a standard Webley, since the Colt SAA should feature a prominent ejector tube under the barrel.
However, this set is outstanding.
Okay, the 1/72 version is loosing a little bit of the crisp shape of the masters. But nevertheless sculpting should have earned more than 7 PSR-points. Just make a comparison between the LoA-set (7) and the BUM 5001 Republican Army ( . Would like to see a new Zvezda or Caesar set released as a Trojan Horse in a Strelets box. I bet it could score 8 or 9 but never a 10 because of the 'chunky Strelets style'
I wont lynch Alan or formally execute him for traitorous allegiance but just agree. I can't see what PSR has written that is unjustified except perhaps that the Han Solo laser blaster pistol packing figure's arms are fairly easy to bend so simple to divert from shooting a fly off his friend's nose to shooting a Turk (who may have been his friend at one time). I always find the reviews a bit heavy on the history but maybe that is personal. I can read and use the internet and often a reference would suffice.
The horses look a bit heavy but then there are some real plastic horrors in boxes from other manufacturers that escape comment. So on a sculpting scale from a home made rocking horse, starved hippo to Adrian Jones*, Peace Quadriga horses, Wellington Arch these would be just over half way. A nimble and responsive horse was the Arab mount rather than a a heavyweight charger. On the other hand the less well off in Sharifian armies could be seen on donkeys or asses or two up on camels just to keep up.
Not Peter O'Toole but the real TE had a very distinctive face as in photos and the Augustus John portrait. Eric Kennington's portrait head sculpture captures him well in three dimensions. This is probably why identification of the man himself in the set is a bit difficult.
*trained as a vet but turned to sculpture.
Hang, Alan!! Hang 'im high!!! ;-)
I will go get the rope.....
