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 was waiting until the north-western hemisphere people got going, but I have become impatient.
The first of the preliminary finals in the footy has finished (a cracker of a game it was too) and I'll not be long to bed (no doubt those further east from here have already headed to the land of nod).
What Friday treats do you have this week for we ever-greedy and enthusiastic consumers of 1/72 figures?
I had always assumed you were from England, I am always saying to people never assume as you will always be getting your ass handed to you lol.
I hope they are busy planning on our Napoleonic Gunners or Firing Line sets and we will get another shipment of goodies.
If all else fails grovel Please Please Mr Strelets Pretty Please Pretty Pretty Please with cream and a cherry on top.
Everything as usual:
short stop before the next week's labours
meeting friends for a refill before next lock-down
Have a nice one!
Thank you Strelets. Of these interesting figures, the infantryman (Russian grenadier I think?) in greatcoat is definitely of interest to me: and good to see that he is still 'nailed' to his sculpting base with a lengthy bit of armature wire; clearly a work in progress.
You also seem to be cornering the market in friendly soldiers in 1/72 offering others drinks from teapots/coffee pots: and musical interludes as well. Well done indeed!
Have a good weekend. :blush:
PS: James will see these on Saturday morning no doubt. Good morning!
Some really exciting figures previewing exciting sets. A good Friday indeed.
Is Strelets venturing into naval Napoleonic figures now?
Wonderful more Russians in greatcoats! Just up my alley. That does not mean that I cannot appreciate the top notch sculpting of the FFL on a break. Thank you for continueing your most fascinating output. Even the PSR is impressed and rightly so with the vast improvements the company has made. Chapeau!
Really impressed with the French Foreign Legionnaires mon Strelets Team.
Looks like they're enjoying a cup of hot coffee on a cold Saharan morning. They could be in a garrison's fort tower, manning the walls or bivouacing under some palm trees at a desert oasis. The rare calm before the storm!
Merci beaucoup - GC
Lovely images to see on a Saturday morning (you were spot on Mark!).
A mix of figures and interesting poses. The Russian grenadier is the favourite for me, no surprises, but like Thomas above I can appreciate and enjoy them all.
The violist portends to a new line of bonus figures? I loved those in the Prussian cavalry and Bavarian infantry that I received recently (civilians and casualties respectively). The figure shown last week and this one look like they will be useful and most interesting bonuses too—if that is what they are.
strelets, please, please, in sas desert ambush m145 one a radio operator man, please, it is possible, ole great figures all, thanks you
The fiddler and the bloke with the squeezebox shown earlier would fit in any folk club, whichever set they are in I think that I might have to have them. Now You've got me wondering if I'll see some Morris Dancers next week.:laughing:
The fiddler would make a good Jack Aubrey, well spotted Sandy. Now we need Stephen Maturin and a gold braid eating wombat to go with him.
