From the release:

Looking for an armored troop transport that can carry up to x15 28mm troops? Want a choice of Front Ramplates? How about the option to upgrade the transport with a light Anti-tank cannon. The upgrade kit includes a choice of laser or auto-cannon? Then the Hippo is the transport for you.
The Hippo comes with a light machine gun for the cab passenger to operate. Stowage boxes are mounted on either side and each can hold 4 of our gas cans if you like. It includes turned wood wheels and axles. The model is laser cut from 1/8th and 1/16th Northern Birch.
For the Ramplate you can choose between the “Leg-breaker” or “Shield Wall”

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    I think these guys would benefit from having someone paint their stuff with something other than a house-painting brush. I don’t think any of it is particularly terrible, but none of it has been modeled up and painted with care either. Hopefully they’ll run some kind of painting contest with their stuff and some cool swag to the winner so they get some proper shots to show off. I could possibly see the big van being cool for SWAT teams and similar.

    • I guess I would have a hard time listening to your advice after the charming way you put your comments.

        You can choose to take or not take feedback however you like, and frankly, I was suggesting those things in the hopes that you would improve, not in the hopes of hurting your feelings.. if that were my goal I’d have been far more scathing and honest.

        What the?!?
        That advice was not derogatory in the least. Seems like a thicker skin is necessary here.

    Actually looks like a cool little truck- but, yeah, that paint job makes it look like a shoebox.

  • Painted examples aside, I must say I was very pleased with the items I ordered from this company; well made, good fit, intelligently designed and fast service across the Atlantic.

    • Thank you Matakishi.

      I have been to your site many times, even before I opened DLCD, and the projects you come up with are VERY impressive. Including our products in one of your current projects has made me feel very honored. Thank you!

      • Well, they’ll be revealed to the public in a couple of weeks so maybe that’ll send some business your way. I hope so. I’ll be ordering one of these trucks for my Buckaroo Banzai project at some point 🙂

    I like what I see visited the site looking for old style 15mm buildings, nothing there but very impressed with bang for buck and reasonable shipping.

    • Dear Tank commander,
      Use the contact link on our store site. I’m always open for commission work. Though I am taking DLCD to Rock Con this weekend so I won’t be in the shop Thursday-Monday. Of course if you are going please feel free to chat me up there too.
