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.
many thanks for the reply, you being responsive makes such a difference compared to other manufacturers.
Your business your strategy of course, but I think having separate gun crews would fit your general idea well: Just like offering the marching / advancing / firing line sets for infantry, modular artillery sets with separate crews and guns would give the customer the choice of building any army in the proportions he likes.
There are many gun kits that have been in need of decent crews for decades, and hopefully you will continue to add to your artillery kit range, so there clearly is a market for gun crews (admittedly smaller than for infantry or cavalry).
If you decide otherwise, combining sprues of existing artillery crew sets (without the guns) would help as well.
WW1 early German, WW2 U. S. and British gun crews would be on top of my list. Regards, Pa
Personally I am very happy that Strelets make guns with crews and am looking forward to
all the artillery sets in the pipeline . There are still plenty of gaps to fill for artillery pieces and crews for 19th century as well as WW1 and WW2 and its great to see Strelets filling these.
