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.
Dear Steve H,
as we've stated before, we're pre-occupied with other projects at the moment:
Thanks Strelets for the quick answer even though its not what I wanted to hear but I live in hope that one day they will appear, so I will be saving up my pocket money until somebody produces some decent Austrians.
I think I would like to see a group photo of what your working on
Looks like the "Show" is about to commence....
just follow the site, these days news come quickly.
You know I am an avid follower, and impatient too
The Nap Austrian Infantry (German uniform) sets in 1/72 consist of just 4 sets (actually 4 half sets).
Italeri 6093 unusable Giants with massive heads not helped by very thick bases and only 3 figures wear the 1805 uniform the over 13 figures wear the 1798 uniform.
Italeri 6005 lots of small errors such as musket carried on right arm instead of left on marching pose, 9 figures in Infantry uniform many poses are very poor the rest of the set made up of 6 figures in Grenadiers uniform .
Esci 226 out of stock for years, only 6 figures in Infantry uniform and mostly poor poses.
Hat 8027 the only Infantry in Shako's a good set with few mistakes but still has 1 or 2 poor poses.
So there we have it lots of half sets lots of mistakes leave us with barely 8 okay poses in Helmets and 6 in Shako's hence the need for more Austrian's Infantry.
Hat have hinted that they may put their long awaited Nap Austrian (German Style) Infantry Masters up for Crowd Funding, but this may not happen.
Strelets you should cash in on your recent successful Napoleonic sets with some Austrian Infantry (Hungarian uniform), done in the same quality they would be in very high demand as none exist.
