About this project

Desktop Dioramas is proud to present our Kickstarter project "Painted 28mm Tanks and Vehicles" for your consideration.  This project is raising money to purchase the various World War 2 model kit miniatures in 28mm (1/56) scale and then have them completely detail painted, decals and markings added, and then sealed for protection.  We are utilizing US Veterans and Disabled Veterans to build the various vehicles, paint and decal them, and assist in the packaging and shipping of the final product to you. We decided to make this a very simple project in that we are offering both World War 2 tanks and other assorted vehicles from the various major participants including British, German, Russian and the United States and allowing you to purchase a single one or buy 3, 6 or 12 of them and mix and match the vehicles any way you would like.  This allows you to have total freedom of choice of any type of tank or vehicle, from any Country, in whatever quantity you would like! In anticipation of this project, we have already started having our Vets assemble and paint many of the tanks and vehicles and have nearly 60 of them done already.  This means we anticipate having all orders completed and shipped out within 30 days of the funding date of the project.  We fully expect every order will be shipped before August 1, 2017.

Risks and challenges

As with any project there are certain risks. We believe we have minimized all of them that are in our control.

1. We have already begun buiilding and painting the vehicles and have almost 60 ready now.

2. We have been working with our contact at the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development - Office of Veterans Affairs and have a pipeline setup to hire additional Veterans.

3. We have accounts set up and active with all of the model and miniatures manufactuers and can have any products in our hands within three days.

4. We have all shipping supplies in stock and a detailed shipping program already running.

5. We have experience with these products and fulfilling orders of every size.

Now what we cannot control is the weather, civil unrest, force majerue or anything else completely out of our control, but we do have a system and personnel in place to make sure we can deliver what we promise when we say we will.
