Posted by Konrad on 20 Apr 2017, 16:10

A week ago STRELETS ask me for painting their new AUXILARIES range.
Today the first test figs arrived.
Very nice figs!!! :thumbup: :thumbup:
However, see yourself.

Thank you, Konrad for posting these sprues. I think you will do a good job on the Auxiliaries. In my eyes all the upcomming sets from Strelets are very good. Except the Spartacus figures, which seems to be stuck in a former period, that is now far away.

You made my decision easy... to buy ;-) (at least Highlanders)

Yup. Although it is less important, it is funny how they waste plastic for such thick sprues.

Guys, guys, don't judge like that! :mad:

Strelets sprues are very useful because of their thickness and softness.
It is perfect to make drums, baskets and canteens:

It comes in different thickness and its free :yeah:

Those sprues should be used to replace all those ridiculous tiny drums of the French Italeri and Esci drummers like these:

Happy modeling :-D

I never throw away sprues. But I rarely use them, either. Good suggestion Mr. Cryns.

I think you can melt a sprue and stretch it to make a long antena for a tank's radio, as well.

That's what I do. But not all kinds of plastic are useful for this.
