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.
This is a very welcome set. Perhaps some of the figures from the Japanese Infantry Heavy Weapons set could be used as crew as it does seem a bit puzzling that nobody is actually operating the gun. But I will certainly be adding a few of these to my collection!
Seems on the small side and a rather odd mounting, was expecting a tripod type like the Hotchkiss on which it is derived with only minor mods...
25 mm/60 (1") Type 96 Model 1
This site give the overall length at 90.4" or 226.39cm
I think its based on this, though I know of no way of knowing if its actually a japanese mount, certainly doesnt seem normal for this type, looks like a split trail.
Type 96 Beijing
Twin version size comparison
WW2 is not my area of interest but it shows very nice figures and artillery piece, I hope you would reconsider the decision on Napoleonic annd ACW artillery sets as i thinks they would sell well and guns are a lot simpler than the gun modeled with this set.
ACW artillery was pretty well covered by other manufacturers, wasn't it?
it's a nice piece of a gun.
We thought about making fortress artillery for Sevastopol, something like that:
Back then we decided to refrain, as we were unsure, whether these pieces would be interesting for the public.
Could we please have live links
just re-tried the link, it seems to be working fine.
On this subject, Japs and Guns that is, how about a big artillery piece , like one of the guns the japs captured at Singapore and then relocated to one of their pacific island conquests ?
Great figures....and very welcome set.
PLEASE....make them in a suitable size that will fit with your lastly produced heavy weapon set.
SIZE DO MATTER!
Having a continuity on set's with more or less the same size of figures is a MUST.
Thanks Strelets, keep the good work up.
As a Pacific War and FETO war fans.....you got me with every Jap's set you'll produce.....if sizes are correct
There´s quite a few in 1/72nd
Definitely in my must have list. Dear Steelers, do you plan next expansion of subject like double and triple versions of this gun?
