Re: Friday Post

That charging musketeer looks amazing.👍

Good to see you back Mr.Strelets,I hope everything is well.👌

Re: Friday Post

Finally again a happy friday! Wonderful! Grateful! Gracious!

I love your new soldiers, especially the musketeer which excites me to let us hope a new WSS-charging set.

Re: Friday Post

I agree completely. I didn't even realize that there is no WSS charging/advancing set yet. This is a welcome surprise for sure.

Re: Friday Post

Re: Friday Post

All very nice, but not the least bit deserty.

Re: Friday Post

Strelets have already done at least 3 sets for the early WWII US side...M105, M112 & M113...could he be a Commonwealth soldier?

Re: Friday Post

I think the Springfield Rifle and canvas leggings say US Army rather than Commonwealth.
How would Commonwealth troops in the Pacific differ from Commonwealth troops in North Africa?

"Good to see some new WW2 for Asian theatre. I`m hoping Strelets will do a set of
Japanese Special Naval Landing Forces. Some Dutch troops would be great too for Indonesia."

I agree those would be great.

The uniforms of 'The forgotten army' look completely different from those of North Africa. Worth looking up the uniforms as the jungle conditions required a totally different style of uniform. Although not perfect worth looking up the Matchbox Australians as an idea (pity they are so tiny as the mule and handler are great!).

To get a feel of the campaign worth looking up the book "Quartered safe out here" by George Macdonald Fraser. It is a brilliant account of the Burma campaign from the point of a squaddy rather than from the officer view. Throughout there are quotes from the 'official' records and what actually took place.

Unfortunately the Chindits seem to be the only ones to be remembered in Burma!
