Re: Strelets continue to amaze and astound

Thank you James. Is it the Military Hobbies in California or somewhere else? And was the key info of ‘When’ mentioned at all? I am in the US and readily admit to a sort of haunting Hannants for their new arrivals listings of 1/72, particularly any new WSS. But then again I prefer to order from Scott at Dauntless Hobbies in California on eBay. I would also add a caution for most of the Italian vendors on eBay - one of which carries a justified rating in the low 90’s - so be forearmed and beware.
Anyway, when the new WSS Austrians do come out I will quickly sate my desire to have some - just to have them - and then unfairly start asking and looking for the Bourbon Spanish, Dutch and Bavarians.
Finally, thanks to Strelets again for coming on and cleaning out the spam and such unwanted interjections into ‘our’ forum. It is a necessary - and continuous chore - unfortunately, on par with junk mail and boiler room phone calls.

Re: Strelets continue to amaze and astound

Dear Toby,

The Military Hobbies that I mentioned is my 'local' supplier in South Australia (I'm in the west).

Andrew mentioned that he plans to send off an order by the end of the week, so I am assuming that they will arrive on our shores sometime in June.

I assume that they will move pretty soon on Hannants' website from 'future releases' to 'new arrivals' (or I'll see them mentioned in a email from Models 2 U).

Kind regards,

Salve, e sempre grato a strelets per gli sforzi che fa per continuare la loro attività.... Domanda vedremo mai realizzati la versione nuova degli highlanders dedicata alla linea rossa? Anche separatamente da quella confezione.... Che anche se criticata da molti tornerebbe utile per il periodo napoleonico.... Le pose mi piacevano molto.... Il mio fornitore italiano di fiducia mi dice che al momento contengono sempre la versione vecchia..... Così e per aggiungere una domanda vedremo forse Prussiani Francesi di linea e Guardie Imperiali per il periodo napoleonico nelle pose di tiro in piazza etc? Grazie ancora e forza strelets

Re: Strelets continue to amaze and astound

Went to the Models 2 U (in UK) website and quickly added it to my bookmarks. I found it most curious in perusing thru the website that they list an upcoming Strelets release in their Napoleonic ‘new releases’ section of a set SM106 US Rangers (presumedly from War of 1812). (Note - old set SM107 was Tecumseh.) Anyone know anything about this? Is it an old proposed set that never came to fruition or another valid upcoming release from Strelets - possibly some from Anton??? Might they be in hunting shirts with US shakos???
