Product description : LCVP model: Landing Craft Vehicle & Personal

Simple, rigorously exact model, can be assembled with the ramp open or closed. Available with three figures. Easy assembly and simple decoration. The D-Day, the largest naval operation of all time, bringing together more than 5,000 ships of all types, could not have taken place without the Landing Craft Vehicle and Personal, small, billhooked vessels whose lines revealed the 'precise use for which they were intended: to run aground on the beaches and to quickly disembark the assault forces by the mobile ramp in front, to get out of the water as quickly as possible to return to look for troops and / or supplies. Made of wood and plywood, 36 feet (11 meters) long, fitted with a wide armored steel ramp tilting forward, and powerfully motorized, the LCVPs - also called Higgins Boat, named after their designer and builder - could carry a platoon of 36 equipped men, or a jeep and 12 men. More than 23,000 units were built by the Americans between l942 and 1945 in different versions.

Maquette d'excellente qualité. La gravure est excellente, les schémas de montage clairs et précis et le plastique de trés bonne densité. Un vrai plaisir. Seul bémol la sculpture des passagers reste largement perfectible.
