1/56 (28mm) LVT(a)-2 armoured amphibious transport
Un-armoured amphibious troop transport, primarily used by the USMC. The hull of this vehicle is a single piece, with a separate slot-in driver's compartment, an option of armoured or un-armoured engine covers and a selection of machine guns. The waterline version of the hull retains the interior detail, though the floor has been raised to waterline levels. This means the interior will not look out of place on the battlefield.
This kit is designed so that the superstructure is removable. Allowing the same kit to have a waterline version of the hull for a fraction of the cost of a full waterline kit. When preparing the kit to have both hull options, please dry fit the interchangeable superstructure and sand the edges down if it is too tight. Remember that even a thin layer of paint will make the fit a bit tighter.
There are three option for this kit:
Land hull only
Waterline hull only
Combined kit with interchangeable superstructure
Suitable for US forces.
Five part kit.
This model is supplied unassembled and unpainted.
