Re: New Strelets ACW Model Set Recommendation

That's a great idea; in my 1/32 ACW figure collection I've been able to collect a pretty fair representation of a medical corps for both sides along with ambulances, hospital tents, etc.; a dedicated set of field medical personnel and even a medical tent (or at least a field hospital set up as they were often put in civilian buildings) would be a great addition not only to Strelets' line but to the entire era. Your French Army Camp remains one of my favorite and over the years I've snatched duplicate sets up whenever they pop up.

Re: New Strelets ACW Model Set Recommendation

Another kit I would like to see strelets develop is a ACW figurine set of the 54th Massachusetts regiment led by Colonel Robert Gould Shaw....haven't seen anything like it from any model figurine manufacturer yet.

Re: New Strelets ACW Model Set Recommendation

Half of this set is suitable, I think, Greg

Re: New Strelets ACW Model Set Recommendation

one thing I tried was using old airfix artillery figures. The officers wear long coats that could be painted white for doctors. one of the loaders appears to be bending over and reaching down, could be an orderly etc. I used old atlantic 7th calvary tents. So you can make a makeshift triage area, but I agree that a new set from strelets would be great. Its so good seeing new ACW sets coming out. Keep them coming strelets!!!!

Re: New Strelets ACW Model Set Recommendation

Yep, they have the best figurine sets of any others out there....only problem is finding model resellers which carry their products.

Re: ACW hospital

Imex make a very nice ambulance wagon http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=477

Re: ACW hospital

I agree it's a nice set that would work, but all retailers that listed the kit dont have it in stock and dont know if or when theyll have it again. I didn't see it listed on the Imex website which leads me to believe it's been discontinued. Hence the reason Strelet's should create a kit to fill the void.
