KIT1 Leyland Hippo Mk2b 10ton GS military 6-wheeler complete kit (see Complete Kits in Cabs List)
Our first kit ever. The idea was born by half a dozen of us with an interest in modelling and three of whom also experienced the delights of national service back in the ‘50’s. The Leyland Interim cab, LEY12, which we introduced some time back, used the same pressings and radiator as the military Hippo produced between 1944 and 1951 and used extensively by the RAF and army for long distance haulage of stores. I drove an RAF one in Aden for a time, another drove one for the army in Egypt and hundreds were used by RAF 51 MT squadron in Egypt for convoys all over the Middle East. Although military vehicles haven’t featured in our line up before, this created sufficient interest for me to alter a CH7 chassis to fit, master the correct style body and chassis fittings and Bob reworked the Interim cab to suit the military application. This was originally commissioned on a small circle of self-interest but as it appears none of the military manufacturers has featured this model it is offered as a complete kit made to order. The entire vehicle, including the wheels, is cast in resin and none of the components will be available as separate items.
Welcome to Road Transport Images.
We produce the largest range available of British Commercial vehicles in 4mm/1:76th scale models from a 1932 Bedford WG up to a 2007 DAF CF, with over 120 cabs introduced since 2003 plus various chassis', bodies and accessories to model the complete vehicle of your choice.
We issue a new price list with new products every 3 months in January, April, July and October, and with each new list we offer a special kit deal that provides a considerable overall saving as opposed to buying the individual modules. This saving is usually between £6-£8 and is a good way of introducing yourself to our product range.
Our large and diverse range of 4mm / OO / 1:76 scale model trucks uses a modular building system which makes assembly as simple as possible, requiring a minimum number of components. All of the cabs consist of two parts: complete cab shell and interior, plus steering wheel and appropriate style fuel tank for the cab type. Chassis are also two parts: chassis rails and rear mudguards, plus underside transmission, including axle beams and dif. to hold the axles in place. A range of white metal wheels is available to suit all cab types.
The range currently includes over 60 cabs from 1932 onwards, 10 chassis to suit all applications, a diverse range of bodies, trailers and unsheeted loads, as well as 23 wheel profiles and a selection of accessories. We have 11 modelling information sheets to help transport modellers add further fine detailing, much of which is included in the illustrations provided and which transforms a model into an authentic replica of the real thing. Our latest addition is display models for sale.
For more information and greater details about the range, it really is better for us to send you hard copy for you to read at your leisure. Please send a DL or A5 size SAE to: 17 Foxdene Road, Seasalter, Whitstable, Kent CT5 4QY.
