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.
I and others have asked for a set or sets of these figures many times over the past twelve years on various forums, with no success from any of the main manufacturers, so I thought I would ask what are the obstetrical`s that are stopping such a set being made ? and could crowdfunding help ?
Sure this would be a superb set (or sets). But, what about jeeps and chevrolets? I think these would be the only problem, as these units are mounted on these vehicles like camel corps on the camels...
So we want jeeps and chevys or we don't? Count me in either way.:v:
Dragon make great 1/72 trucks....but no crew! as for jeeps an easy conversion from all the 1/72 jeeps now available. Seated figures would be on my wants list.
Another solution is strelets to make two sets: one set for SAS and three jeeps and another set with LRDG and two trucks. It would take time and effort but since caesar made it with kubelwagen, I can't see why strelets couldn't ...
I would love to see the Long Range Patrol depicted in 1941 and not least because my father served in the LRP and later when it was renamed LRDP in North Africa, Sicily and Italy.
Their main mode of transport was the big Chevrolets. Rarely, if ever, Jeeps: where would they mount the machine-guns?
I'd be happy with just the soldiers; seated or skirmishing.
Yes I would save up my pocket money a buy a FEW!!!! sets
if need truck or jeep sas lrdg or north west europe crews badly try milicast model company they have some resin sets in 1/72 1/76 we all known about resin dear few and hard to work with but if you need them badly it could help you fill a hole
The Milicast figures are 1/76 so on the small side and more to the point NWE and not Western desert , I think there is potential for three sets one LRDG on foot , some poses could be prone on road watch , a vickers team, lewis gunner, plus other infantry poses , no Bren pouches because the LRDG were not issued Bren guns and a mix of rifles (smle`s) and captured Italian sub machine guns (they were not issued stens or Thompson's either) , Set two SAS in Arab head dress armed with Thompson's , Vickers k`s etc and set three , universal crews for jeeps and chevy`s , that pretty much ticks the important boxes and fills what is a big gap in the hobby,particularly for those of us with an interest in all things desert 1940-43.
