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.
There are a lot of really nice looking figures here. The prone and kneeling figures look better to me than most existing ones, and (of course) these would be the most common positions for soldiers "in defense". The one unconvincing pose -- the kneeling LMG guy -- looks like he could be easily converted to Alan's missing HMG number 2. Just cut off the poorly done LMG and stick an ammo strip in his hands.
I am deeply sorry. The link I mentioned above, is about a "have to be forgotten" army (the one consisting of Indian prisoners who fought alongside the Japanese Imperial Army) and not the real 14th army. Of course as a true admirer of the British war effort I am referring to the W. Slim's 14th army!!!
With great expectation we await the release of these new figures.
We would like to one day see a Japanese figure released of an infantryman arming a hand grenade by striking it against his helmet. Also, a still standing figure firing a Nambu lmg from the hip.
Very nice, accurate figures. Well chosen poses, nicely executed. Now we need some U.S. Marine
figures. I would especially like to see Marine artillery, mortars and heavy machine guns.
WW2 jap's figures are always welcome, especially when so well done.
BUT i was wondering what happened to, if I'm not wrong, a set that would depict WW2 jap's in WINTER DRESS.....great for China, Manchuria, Kuril islands....
