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 was just browsing through LET's awaited releases and I noticed under the entry for you they showed M116 Japanese infantry in winter clothing. I don't remember seeing this on your site and couldn't find any reference to it now but did you plan to do such a set and have cancelled. There was a recent discussion about troops for the war in China and obviously these would be just the ticket.
indeed at some point this set was advertised, however, due to the absence of adversaries, we postponed it. At this point in time we don't want to venture into this subject in full depth, because it will distract us from lines, that are actively developed at the moment.
Please, be guided accordingly.
Thanks for the reply, I was just a bit hopeful there would be Japanese forces that could be used against the Soviets. It would also if one day PLA and GMD forces were produced that could be used against the Japanese and for the Chinese civil war. Probably a bit too niche for the majority of wargamers.
Seems funny to have made a whole range of Japanese without adversaries. Excluding early Americans of course.
But any Chinese we may get in the future will be worth the wait.
Thanks Strelets for all the sets you do manufacture.
Agreed - Japanese adversaries were many: Indians, Burmese, Malay, Dutch, British (including Chindits and Gurkhas), Australian/New Zealand, and Americans as well as the Chinese and Russians mentioned already of course
No one has made any Dutch for the East Indies Campaign. Should I mention that no one has made any Dutch for the East Indies Campaign? Furthermore, no one has made any Dutch for the East Indies Campaign. Hint, hint, Strelets.
Have to support the request for Japanese Infantry in Winter Dress, would be a great approach to handle an as yet ignored major theatre of WWII.
Add 2 sets of Chinese opponents and watch me buying them in numbers... . :sweat_smile: :blush:
Japanese cavalry, an light artillery crew & mule trains for both sides would already cover the most important aspects of warfare in the oftentimes difficult terrain.
Moreover, we have a solid range of WWII Winter Soviets to create hypothetical scenarios.
Hope this set (M116 & potentially the whole theatre) are merely postponed and not excluded. :neutral_face:
