Chris, does your g/d`s friend want to sail this contraption, or will a model do?? There are two lcm models on the market, and of a reasonable size in i/32 scale (or theres always the  Airfix 1/72 version!)    Ashley

Revell do a very nice version of this type of landing craft and the kit comes with a set of plans, which whilst relating to the plastic kit could also be adapted for a scratch build.

Hi Chris
 
Try using the static model as a basis for drawing up your own plans for the LCM, its not that hard to do and it can be a lot of fun.

hiya chris marine modelling plans &contructionalspecial
they do a plan of a lct mk5 it is in 1/72 scale but you could double the 
size of the plan to the picture  shows 4 tanks on the deck  so this might
be a way round  your problem  hope this helps  mick

Chris,
 
Have you looked at the old 1/48th scale plan with the LCA thrown in which can be ordered via My Hobby Store?   See http://www.myhobbystore.com/1956/-Landing-Craft-MM1288.html

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
