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 wish all of us friends here including our gracious host Strelets a safe journey thru this and that this can be brought swiftly under control. - GC
Good to hear from you all
And we can but hope to re emerge in better times
Hunker down if you can and stay safe
I'm still working but if sent home, the plastic mountain awaits
Dear hobby companions, I live in Brazil. We are quarantined from today, which I think is too late. The authorities were not believing in the seriousness of the disease. The middle class, to which I belong, has material conditions to remain in social isolation. However, I am very concerned about the 100 million poor, who receive an average of $ 200 to $ 300 a month. They will continue to use public transport, which is always full, as they will have to continue working to survive. There will be a tragedy here in the country, as the public service is very precarious. I feel guilty, because I will be safe in my house, enjoying with my dear miniatures, painting and assembling kits, playing wargames on table trays, but my countrymen will not be so lucky. A hug of solidarity to all, because I know that this pandemic is universal, with thousands of deaths.
Thoughtful post Paulo and very sobering, I was going to say something flippant about toy soldiers but I don't have the heart for it now. I hope that one of the things that comes out of this is that we genuinely learn that "no man is an island" "ask not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee". We are one species and we need to love and care for one another whatever our race colour, nationality or creed because competition and conflict is a game with no winners.
