It's been 100 years of the sounds of silence in the Arabian desert since Lawrence and his Arabs terrorized the Hejab Railway blowing those iron horses off their rails and into their sandy graves. That is until Strelets resurrected the Revolt in 1/72 scale.
A century ago the Ottoman Turkish steam locomotives heated up the desert sands running from station to station carrying troops, supplies and pilgrims all the while fearing the worst from ambush. And now Strelets' foot arabs are laying in wait behind many a sand dune, again ready for a fight.
I can't wait to set these guys up to relive the past. Great looking foot arabs, Strelets.
Note: For collectors and wargamers looking for a low-tech and reasonable cost of building a nice railway diorama / wargaming table set piece, Thomas the Train has some great looking semi-soft plastic sand color railroad track pieces that snap together in every imaginable shape. And the trains and flatbed cars and more are easily converted with simple paint jobs. eBay sellers can supply you all you need. And there are some cheap knock-offs from China these days. Low tech toys, of course, but they actually look nice. A little Green Stuff to fill in that smile on the front of the locomotives and just sand it smooth.
