Who are we?

Mad Bob Miniatures focuses on the more esoteric items of World War Two equipment, that are rarely produced by the existing manufacturers. Normaly our products are made for slightly larger scales, we have been producing resin vehicles and artillery for over 3 years. We know how to make things sturdy and simple to assemble, while maintaining detail and accuracy. These models will be cast in resin and supplied unassembled and unpainted.

Why Kickstarter?

This is a new scale for us, expanding our ranges requires a lot of up front investment, mostly in time, but also in money. Kickstarter also allows us to test the waters, to find out what will be popular and produce those items without the risk of an expensive flop. If this campaign proves successful then we will produce more of our range in 1:72 (20mm).

What is in this campaign?

This project aims to bring easy to build French Halftracks and other vehicles to the wargaming table. These models will be far easier to assemble than many of the other offerings in this scale without sacrificing detail.

Test Casts:
We have already done a couple of test casts to prove that we can provide simplicity and detail in a smaller scale than we are currently used to.

Citroen Kegresse P19 VDP 1/72 (20mm)
Citroen Kegresse P19 VDP 1/72 (20mm)

This is the 3 part Citroen Kegresse P19 VDP 1/72 (20mm), the spare wheel is not normally a part of this kit. The frame on the rear of the vehicle aims to protect the delicate components from being damaged in transit.

Part counts below are provisional, if we can make something simpler to assemble without losing detail, we will.

Citroen-Kegresse P19 VDP:
These were used as troop transports, carrying 6 men plus driver into battle.
Suitable for French and German forces.
Three part kit.

Citroen-Kegresse P19 VLTT:
All terrain staff car and reconnaissance vehicle.
Suitable for French, Belgian, Polish, Danish, Italian and German forces.
Four part kit.

Our pricing structure is really simple, the more you want the less you pay per vehicle. There will also be a limited number of reduced cost 'Early Bird' offers for those who are quick.

Shipping is an easy flat rate fee.

  • UK postage is free
  • EU postage is £3
  • Rest of the World postage is £5

We do not intend to do wave shipping, as the extra record keeping can cause issues.


Vehicles beyond this point will be available to select as pledge rewards once total funding reaches their 'unlock' level. Spread the word and get more people pledging so that we can produce more of these vehicles.

Citroen-Kegresse P19 25mm Portee:
Tank hunting halftrack with portee mounted light anti-tank gun
Suitable for French forces.
Three to five part kit.

Somua MCG
Artillery tractor, recovery vehicle and troop transport.
Suitable for French and German forces.
Four part kit.

Laffly S20TL:
All terrain 6x6 truck purpose built to transport "Dragoon Portes", the motorised units of the French army.
Suitable for French and German forces.

Laffly W15T:
tow vehicle for the 47mm APX anti-tank gun


If there is enough demand we will add more stretch goals.

Risks and challenges

The initial two designs are already in production in small quantities.
The third, fifth and sixth designs are near ready for printing.

Further stretch goals will be rescaled items from our larger scale range, as such the design phase will be quick.

Our last Kickstarter, Hungarian tanks, was a roaring success. Which took about as long to complete as expected. In that Kickstarter we planned for an additional month per £1000, resulting in a one year deadline. 95% of pledges were completed within that year.

We are running a separate Kickstarter campaign to reproduce many of the vehicles above in 28mm scale. However the other project will share much of the design work, making the two campaigns complimentary.
