About

$10,052

The US Military lives on the supplies by it’s trucks. Every unit has some form of the 2 ½ Ton or 5 Ton truck for moving their equipment. We at Miniature Building Authority and TableTop Tactical Simulations have wanted to add vehicles to our modern figure line since the creation of the figures. We now have those vehicles for you.  

We at Miniature Building Authority have been producing fine miniature pieces since 2002. Our traditional MBA line delivers the highest quality pre-painted assembled buildings so you can go straight to gameplay.   

Our Direct Line gives you access to many more products, well over 200 products at more affordable pricing. This line of gaming products gives people that enjoy painting the opportunity to personalize their terrain.  

This is our 7th Kickstarter project. We have delivered on all our previous projects. We look forward to delivering these new items to you on time.

We are bringing you eight new 28mm vehicles for your forces. These are the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle which is replacing the HUMVEE and most of the MRAPs to include the MATV. Then we have three versions of the up-armored 2 ½ ton truck. This includes the flat bed variant, canvas covered bed and the utility van variant. In the up-armored 5 ton truck we are bringing you the flat bed, canvas covered bed, fuel carrier, and a gun truck.  

The trucks are part of Miniature Building Authority’s Direct Line of Terrain. This is terrain that we make and sell, but it does not come painted, or assembled in some cases. They are made of resin and metal. They are easy to assemble and, being vehicles, easy to paint as well. 

Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV): The JLTV is replacing all of the HUMVEEs in US Army and Marine Corps inventory. It will also replace the MATV and most of the MRAPs.

These are kits and do not come painted or assembled.

Before we discuss the various levels I want to cover shipping with everyone. These products are wrapped in bubble wrap and can be easily sent in smaller boxes. This will be a big bonus for our overseas customers.  

SHIPPING: As with all Kickstarters, we will have to charge for shipping. All orders: Shipping is not included and there will be a shipping charge owed when your order is ready to ship.  These fees will be charged to you once the items arrive and actual shipping costs can be determined. You will be billed either via credit card or Paypal for these additional fees before shipping to you.  

Outside Continental USA orders and Post office boxes:   We highly recommend that you do not use PO boxes whenever possible. It would be less expensive to use a business address than a PO Box. Once the products are here and we can determine actual costs you will be contacted to let you know the additional fees. You will be billed either via credit card or Paypal for these additional fees before shipping to you.

International orders: Once the products arrive and actual shipping costs can be determined; at that point we will contact you, let you know we are ready to ship, and then send you a bill for shipping. Here is a sample of what a single vehicle would cost to ship first class to UK or Australia $21 or to Canada $16 .  However, once you get over 4 pounds in weight, they have to ship priority and the price will jump up.Note, these are prices from March of 2018 and we can not guarantee what the prices will be in mid 2018 from the Post Office.

Painted vehicles will only come in desert tan.

$1 Pledge Level: Thank you again for supporting our project to bring the highest quality shanty buildings and accessories onto the market. This level gets your foot in the door to purchase add-ons.

Add ons are a fun way to customize your pledge. We do have some initial add ons for you, and as we meet our stretch goals other items will be unlocked and added to the list of available items.  

How do I add them to my pledge? Add up the price for each of the add-ons and add it to your pledge level. Then change the amount of your pleged amount to the new total. Please message me with which add-ons you are adding to your pledge. This will make it easier for both of us when the survey's come out after the campaign. Thanks, Kirk

Risks and challenges

This is not our biggest project, we have been producing high quality pre-painted and pre-assembled buildings for over 16 years. The prototypes are here. We are ready to get the campaign going, finalize the numbers and get our production facility producing the products. These are made in USA which will make it much easier to complete than our normal China made MBA buildings. This is our Seventh Kickstarter, but we have always done pre-orders and we have delivered every time. The biggest risk is that this could be delayed longer than we are planning. We have done our best to make sure that this is a realistic and reachable delivery timeline.
Customers that choose to have their pledge painted will have to wait a bit longer. We have a painted section to show you some samples from our painter, and will give you the best delivery times we can on all the painted pieces. However, he is one guy. They will all be painted by hand, and there will be some variations in the paint jobs from one vehicle to the next.
