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 also like that we get a a box of 48 figures like the old days.
It can be a topic for future 'spot the error' quizzes, just like the lance on the Airfix cuirassiers' box! :)
All the sets in the coming release seem to now be on the website, what a magnificent lot it is for we eager 1/72 collectors/wargamers/diorama-makers/hoarders/...
I have my order in with my 'local' supplier and shall look forward to them reaching our shores (in a coupla months!).
Thank you yet again, wonderful team-Strelets!!
I looking foreword to the box art for LRDG at rest, LRDG on road watch , LRDG in attack , LRDG seated and firing heavy weapons, LRDG loading/unloading , LRDG using sand channels etc......can`t wait.
There is and has been some great box art for plastic warriors in 1/72...and some which is distinctly less good. The Airfix Cuirassiers is one case of bizarre historical inaccuracy; another from the same company which I always wonder at is the Romans set; a Hollywood-style Centurion with drawn sword in the middle of Rome (surely an arrest-able offence??) appears imminently to be mown down by a four-horse chariot which has escaped from the Coliseum. Not a legionary, auxiliary archer or pilum in sight.
A great contrast to some of the very fine box art that various artists produced for Airfix over the years. What were they thinking of when they produced this Romans box??
If you want a thread on box-art, how about this one: Prussian dragoons without saber might be a topic. Fortunately, the masters do show them with their blades.:wink:
My favourite is the Prussian Uhlans box artwork.
That horse obviously didnt like the baby much!!!
