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.
Are these two articles of interest/relevance?
FIRSTLY I'd like to compliment the sculptor on the excellent details.
Super job on the Foreign Service Pith Helmets. The Air Vent on top gives them such a nice touch. And the excellent flares on the helmets around the bottom brims front and back. I've read many Officers paid out of pocket to have their own helmets made designed stylishly the way they liked them.
Also excellent are the double ammo-pouches and braces that hold them up. Same for the other accoutrements.
I love the sabres on two of the men, and I also like all of the poses. For me, I'll use these soldiers for firing some Pom Pom Guns.
And I'll also use them as a Command set for Highlanders getting ready to charge the Boer trenches and bringing up more "Bullets From Birmingham" just like in the Zulu and Zulu Dawn movies.
So many uses for me!
NEXT POINT(S) Please, you simply have to make:
(1) another set of pure Infantry for these guys to fight with, especially the Officers and Ammo Team. There is no limit to how many sets of these Highlanders you can make, and we'll be buying all of them. Especially myself regardless of box art and mix. I'll also be using some of the British 15 pdr 7cwt BL Gun Artillerymen from that set to man and operate some of the Pom Pom Guns. See, now I've got to buy twice as many Artillery Sets to get all of the guys I need to operate all of my Pom Pom Guns.
and (2) More British Cavalry, Lancers, and Officers on Horseback. There were lots and lots of famous Officers also to make a set of Foot Officers or combined, just like your American Civil War Series.
WELL, TOMORROWS FRIDAY SO FINGERS CROSSED. THANK YOU STRELETS TEAM!
we've just submitted few new masters for this period in a thread below this one.
Have a nice week-end!
