New on the Strelets-r forum

 Teasers for future releases on the forum. Standards are very high i would say but I am smitten. Not sure who these are but I am impressed.

Unboxing Strelets Set #230. British Infantry in Advance 1701-1714. War of Spanish Succession. 1/72.

Useful look at the new set from Drum and Flag. The only slight grumble I have is you get a hautbois and no drummer. I will be following this series closely.
