A class of string models is studied to leading order in a 1d expansion, where d is the dimensionality of space-time. The static potential is found to be given by V(R)=M2R(1-Rc2R2)12, where Rc is a critical distance. At R=Rc, the system undergoes a phase transition to a state where a quasistatic string picture is no longer applicable.
