Diecast Vehicles for VBCW Part II

So, two new vehicles have arrived.

Lledo DG 034 1932 Dennis Delivery Van
To me, this looks like a fairly good size match for my figures.  The door height is about the same as the Ford Model A truck from the earlier post. 

Lledo DG 016 1934 Dennis Parcels Van
 Looking at the door height, I think this one might be slightly undersized for 28mm figures. However, all in all it's not too bad (especially since it was on $4.99, including the shipping).

Size comparison of both with the Ford truck:

I wasn't able to find photos of either van, but here is link to a Dennis van similar to the 1934 model:
Though there is no person in the photo, the chairs behind the van would lead me to believe the tops of the doors should be above a man's head. So I think my belief  that the parcels van is too small is likely true.

One of the tricky things in trying determine the size of Lledo vehicles when looking at online auctions, is that their box sizes have changed over time.

To help you in sizing up vehicles, here are the dimensions for these two box types:

  • Height (not counting the top tab) 6.0cm, 2 3/8"
  • Length 12.6cm, 4 7/8"
  • Height (not counting the top tab) 6.6cm, 2 5/8"
  • Length 14.2 cm, 5 5/8"
