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.
Italian line for the desert is being developed by an Italian company that's doing that very well. We'd rather not interfere into their area of interest, after all, manufacturers have their preferences and soft spots as well.
Here's another vote for French "Colonial" infantry, i. e. Africans fighting for France in WW1 and 2.
Graham, there are some figures in the "X MAS" set from Waterloo11815 to add some riflemen to the Folgore, plus some more if you are prepared for headswaps. The sculptor seems to be the same, size and stlye are a perfect match.
I agree the existing sets of Italians are somewhat lacking, the best ones are too tall, so I'd welcome a new set.
Very much looking forward to Strelets' Italian artillery set!
Thanks for that I knew about the X mas and have looked at them in the past but obviously didn't pick up on the fact that some are wearing parachutist type uniform. Now to see if I can track them down as I doubt if this was very popular set.
