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.
Thanks for the update Strelets. I can't imagine sculpting detailed figures at such a small scale is easy, and therefore the amount of people in this world talented enough to do so are probably pretty few. I pray that some things go your way in the future and that it all works out.
Ah, well so much talent gone to waste ... Than again, at times like these when everything ist getting more and more expensive, one can hardly blame him and if digging trenches saves some lives it's probably a bit more importamt right now. Sad times ...
As much as this war of aggression is obviously having a negative impact on our hobby, I am all the more concerned about the people directly affected in Ukraine and the far-reaching consequences on the overall situation.
I continue to express my very best wishes to the brave people of Ukraine.
Particularly in the direction of the aforementioned sculptors and of course the entire Strelets staff, their relatives and friends. :slightly_smiling_face: :flag-ua:
He not only digs. He fights with weapons in his hands. He defends his country. And not for money. And in the trenches it is not very convenient to make figures.
And He fights for all free people, including me and You, spokeperson of Strelets.
I understand that His military service disorganized operation of Strelets, buy whole Strelets should be proud and supportive of Him. May the God bless Him and protect Him.
Haron, please pass on may warmest regards to him and all those for whom we share a connection through toy soldiers, I continue to send money to the Red cross and will endure the increased financial burden this end without complaint , knowing the hardship our Ukrainian friends are suffering.
Here You can see him making Strelets WSS sets and others:
His wife also helps him to paint the figures.

Thank You! It’s my hobby since I was a child. So I do it with pleasure
Thanks for trying, but same result.
Very sorry to hear this Alan! I tried it several times and it works for me. It’s strange, somebody else has this problem?
Thanks for the update. Are the early WW2 US infantry and Japanese pictured on this site a short while ago complete and ready for release in the near future ?
Does that mean that the masters for the Napoleonic British in square are gone/unfinished or do you have them and are just awaiting the chance to produce them? Just asking so can plan accordingly. If they are still planned to be made, I will happily wait for them. If not & the set is cancelled, then alas I may need to look elsewhere.
Hopefully all associated with the company are doing ok, as best as can be expected in current circumstances. While a massive problem for Strelets, the freedom and safety of Ukraine & its people, takes priority at this time.
With any luck the sculptors can be contacted and will still be prepared to make masters for you, if not, I wish them well and wish you the best in finding replacement sculptors. There must be somebody out there who would be interested.
All the best
If Strelets have not released them in 7 months (since the war began) then I do not think they were finished. Let’s hope when the war is over then the process can continue.
Wish You the best, Strelets team!
These are sad times. Let us hope they are over soon. Digging trenches and shooting on opposing poor guys is no pleasant occupation in reality. Let us all hope everybody can return to his pre war work (except those warhawks).
It's a nice surprise to connect a name, a face, and a story with one of the sculptors whose work I so greatly admire.
I have to agree that he should be pulled out of the trenches for the greater good. As an extremely gifted artist, his sculpturing work is so much more important for humanity than being a living target for autonomic drones and loitering ammunition that are programmed to kill human beings without mercy.
May Strelets get his sculptors back unharmed, and may this horrible war be resolved peacefully in the near future.
