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.
GC, PSR doesn't talk about giraffes, only camels.
The giraffe-schtick was a joke.
The quoted material comes from QI. I'm sure you'll agree that Stephen Fry is an acknowledged expert.
Now I understand why I couldn't understand.
I suppose you are right. Somebody has to be wrong now & then. ;)
Sorry but this is something of an irritation of mine even though I suspect most people won't care. We've had many pantomime horses from many makers over the years (Strelets is by no means the worst offender) Why pantomime? Well because the front and back legs are in step with eachother as if a human is in the front and back end which is the complete opposite of how MOST quadrupeds move (camels and giraffes notwithstanding!).
This has been known ever since Eadward Muybridge created his revolutionary horse-in-motion photographs but can be more easily seen by pausing a youtube video of a horse moving.
So please, all makers, no more...
I really get the hump with all this camel talk. But here goes the first camel is wrong as one foot is off the ground not two. Also none of my figures move by themselves they just stay in the same pose all the time and none of the weapons fire so not very realistic more like toys.
