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 finally got rid of the covid and got round to opening my Christmas presents and I am wondering is it just me or does the figures in the latest highlander sets that are wearing the small forage cap look as if their heads are poorly sculpted or molded.
I do like all the poses and especially the casualty poses its just the small caps that look really strange.
I had been wondering how you were going. Great to hear that you are back to better health. No long-term effects, I hope?
All the best, James
thank you for the kind words, I caught it in hospital of all places, felt like a four day hangover It was made worse by my ongoing health conditions. It was great to see all the sets I had ordered weeks ago and finally opened yesterday. I was impressed with the poses of the highlander sets just the weird headdress poses, I also loved the Russian Jager sets.
Happy new year to everyone and lets hope for a safe and happier new year.
Glad you are feeling better.
It is not your imagination, some of the heads do seem a bit small in comparison with their bodies, probably not helped with the forage caps.
However on the whole the firing line is a good set.
Least the bayonets were fixed this time!!!!
Good news Alan no need to regroup in hell. Stay well.
I have always said hell sounds so much more fun than heaven but it might not be compatible with my plastic mountain, perhaps strelets can alter its plastic formulation to make it more heat resistant.
Thank you for kind thoughts
I know at first i thought the sprue hadn't filled the mould correctly but when i put my glasses on I could make out the forage caps.
The poses are really good and I am a big fan of the wounded figures except for the wounded flag bearer. as that is a pose that is needed in every battalion so would have preferred him fit for action and not on his knees.
I got both highlander sets and the Russian jagers (36 Boxes in total) and I looking forward to more Russians coming out next year.
I am feeling a lot better but I was on a lot of medications that probably helped me get through it better than a lot of people, so please everyone be careful its a nasty thing and i wouldn't wish it on anyone.
thanks for the kind words
Just read PSR's review of the firing line. Not a bad score, even lots of praise. I hadn't expected anything else having received the sets two weeks ago. Let's hope for more great sets including the 5/60th and/or 95 th rifles. Now find the time to paint them.:face_with_rolling_eyes:
