Great to see you guys still posting in these very difficult times
Are we talking Aussies on the Kokoda Trail?
The give away is the American style canteen. US Army as in the early campaigns such as the Philippines. Also the Colt M1911 pistol and Thomson submachine gun are all classic American weapons. Of course Australia did use the Colt pistol.

Mike,it’s the gaiters. US ones were much higher than Commonwealth.
Wow, amazing yet again. Discussion below of a well drying up, yet Strelets keeps on keeping on under the most trying circumstances.
Thank you for more stimulation and inspiration; from the lovely masters, but chiefly that you are there, doing what you do best while a few try to stuff the whole thing up...
Bonjour Monsieur Strelets,
Je suis vraiment content de vous voir, et j'apprécie ces maitres.
Restez en sécurité et en santé
Hello Mr Strelets,
I'm really happy to see you, and I appreciate these masters.
Stay safe and healthy
Good to hear from you again Strelets!
As James mentions above, here we were discussing the fall of a once great brand, & here you are, despite everything happening right now, still producing masters to amaze us with.
Thank you so much for your efforts.
The two Japs are nothing like animated enough, I know that is hard given a static pose and the two part mould, but they are in a life or death struggle in the most close quarter combat, they need to look like they know that.
Great to see you are still OK and able to post stuff. But can I be a little critical. The Japanese soldier using his rifle as a club just doesn't seem right and seems to begging to be shot or bayoneted by an opponent. Also, please can we have fewer SMGs, the first two early American sets have plenty and, although, I understand the need to depict a Thompson and a Sten in the Indian sets there still seem to be too many. Hope you view this as constructive criticism. Stay safe.
Hello all you wonderful people at Strelets'
It is so reassuring to see your postings.
I'm sure I speak for all my fellow forumers, when I say that you are constantly in our thoughts.
We hope and believe that you will pull through and grace us with more amazing figures.
I'll be happy with most of what you are making at the moment. I won't even mention more camels :innocent:
Always good and re-assuring to hear from you, Strelets. The lack of wigs and large cuffs this week is no matter, it is just enough to have a regular posting from you.
All good wishes, and stay safe.
Very promising transition to the Far East Fronts. Very well done Strelets, stay safe and happy Easter!!!:+1: :+1: :+1:
