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.
We'll cope, of course.
Wargamers are an adaptable lot & conversions &/or seeking out compatible figures is par for the course.
The obvious solution is the old one of using a figure with slopped arms (from the marching set), & replacing the musket with a flag pole.
Still, Strelets, please keep the problems of "figures wrapped in flags" in mind for the next time.
