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.
Hopefully, you've enjoyed the run
and didn't miss your targets
Have a nice week-end!
Go Aussies in North Africa/Pacific?
Can't wait to get my hands on these.
Helmets included I hope as more prevalent in battle than the iconic slouch hat.
Thank you Strelets
I think the earlier Jocks, with the Brodie helmets, are part of this set, so there are a good mix of helmets and slouch hats.
The slouch hats will be useful to me, because after they fight it out at Tobruk, I'm sending these guys to reinforce Port Moresby in New Guinea. The real guys there were still wearing this uniform when they got to the Kokoda.
Let us hope that little by little we will transfer ourselves at the Far East fronts, especially the Chinese one!!!
But I must say that these figures seems to be of a high quality in all respects!!!
Well done Strelets, for one more time...

Nice job Strelets 👍
J'aime vraiment beaucoup, particulièrement les figurines italiennes.:grinning: :smile: :smiley:
Great figures again Mr strelets i am saving up for xmas I have a huge want list already.
somebody stop me please.:wink:
Another week-end full of pretty figure...thank you Strelets ... can I hope for the Gurkas one of these days? ;)
These are AWESOME, Australians and Italians (? I hope so) in Africa are some of the most important sets missing. This Christmas is going to hit hard on my wallet
This is not my period of interest, but these do look like excellent poses. Well done Strelets!
Good looking sculpts, and the Aussies are a welcome surprise. Good poses, just a minor quibble over the very small (toy-sized?) revolver being carried by the officer.
Have a good weekend.
The Aussies look a bit like the Highlanders, body proportions are not quite right, whilst delighted to see them I would prefer them not "rushed" but take the time to get them right, the pose with his hand outstretched , why or what is he doing ? . Rommel always said give me a division of New Zealands and I will take any objective and a division of Aussies to hold it, or words to that effect. Aussies in defence and take the time to get them right and you have an irresistible set.
I agree with RCD. Some Vichy please. And i add some Italian Colonial troops.
Thanks for further previews of WWII North Africa/Mediterranean units.
The earlier shown Italians as well as these DAK and Australians will be excellent additions to the respective 1/72 range.
Really hope not all upcoming Aussies will look as comic-like as those grotesquely oversized musclemen presented earlier. :see_no_evil:
However, more clearly recognizable Commonwealth troops for both world wars are always a valuable addition.
Count me also in for any possible expansion regarding Far Eastern theatres 1937-45 (SE Asia & China). :wink:
