A reissue of a classic K&C model... This specially-marked LCVP (Landing Craft Vehicle Personnel) commemorates the 75th Anniversary of D.Day. Our LCVP or ‘Higgins Boat’ is a superb mixed-media model (white metal, polystone and resin) and comes with a moveable ramp, a US Navy cox’n and two sailors manning their .30 cal. machine gun positions. Almost 24,000 were built during WW2 and they could carry a platoon of infantry or a jeep and trailer. Typically constructed from plywood, these shallow-draft, barge-like boats were usually launched from larger troop transports. If you’re interested in D.Day this model is a ‘must’!
