I've searched my usual hobby suppliers, but none carry D-Toys.
Looking for the Humvee super swamper set. Any idea who sells them in CONUS?

They're still around, but they go by DVision now, you can find their stuff on eBay, I'm pretty sure I saw the wheels you're looking for last week.

The last product I bought from them was under the "Division Miniature" branding.

HobbyEasy in Hong Kong has some D-Toys products. Service is excellent.

Ivan, there is a set of Voyager Models PEA245 Super Swamper wheels/tires available on evilbay. The detail in the photos looks good. I haven't read any reviews on them but they are an option.

Regards,

Eric

Ivan, I skimmed the review here and didn't see mention of it. In photos the parts appear round, not flattened slightly. The reviewer wasn't very impressed with the shape overall. Are you building a GMV from the period prior to 2004?

Eric

Eric,

No idea at the moment. Working on a 1/350 USS Boxer (USS Wasp LHD-1 conversion) for my sister-in-law.
