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.
Maybe I missed some information, but does anybody know what happened with Hät industries? Will they produce the masters they have posted on their website?
Thanks and have a nice day,
Alessandro, you can ask this over at HaT:
I'm not sure about the completeness of the answer you may receive.
My opinion, for what it is worth, is that HaT will continue to release sets but at a slow pace.
I will try to be positive about the waiting. Con la pazienza s'acquista scienza.
I don't want to abuse our host's hospitality but feel a comment is due here. HaT is still in business but there have been numerous SNAFUS rising to the levels of FUBARS on the production side of things - which is half a world away from HQs.
I would imagine the current health situation in China will make things worse. When it rains it pours.
I hope this helps.
BTW: For those unfamiliar with the terms:
SNAFU - US Army slang for Situation Normal - All [Fouled] Up.
FUBAR - [Fouled] Up Beyond ALL Recognition
Hello Wayne; what does BTW mean?
Thanks Murat/Wayne, I had a hearty laugh this morning (several hours ago now) when I read this.
When asked by SHMBO what I was laughing at, I told her, only to be asked (dead-set), "What does BTW mean?"
It also helped me to overcome the tragic disappointment of another week with a non-Napoleonic teaser. That is two in a row. We are *so* hard done by.
James Fisher I believe you mean SWMBO - I'm not sure what SHMBO means.
Back to the original post - there is also an unofficial Hat Industries Facebook Group.
Steve, don't you spell who with an 'h'?
Yeah, stuffed up there, d@mn!
Although our hosts were always very tolerant regarding other manufacturers subjects, they made perfectly clear that they do not wish further Hät promotion at their site.
No big deal, since this company runs its own forum (as we surely all know)... .
Thank you all, it was just a question and hope Strelets didn't feel offended, as it is written upsides that we should feel free to talk about every aspect of 1/72 scale. My mistake, I didn't read the discussion Peter the Great reported. Renewed thanks to all who answered.
