    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    Developed by Higgins Industries of New Orleans on the basis of a flat-bottomed boat used in the Louisiana marshlands, the LCVP (Landing Craft, Vehicle and Personnel) took part in all the major amphibious operations of Second World War, in Europe and the Pacific. Its task was to shuttle back and forth between the big ships and the beaches, carrying up to thirty men, light vehicles and anything else that was needed. Generally armed with two rear-mounted machine guns, it was powered by a 250 HP Hall Scott petrol engine or a 225 HP Gray diesel engine. After the end of the Second World War the LCVP stayed in service, occupying a number of roles. It saw action in Korea and Indochina and has also been adapted for civilian use all over the world.
