Hi Jon,

Update. I was having a look over on Netmerchants.

Warriors have a US LCVP crew and their DUKW crew could easily be converted into US sailors wearing wet gear.

There are also the first 2 USN Figures out for the ELCO Boat with I imagine more to follow.

For your US boats you should be able to crew them up nicely. Don't forget guys like mechanics that might be useful also, again possibly with just a change of head.

Cheers

Al

Since my return to RC MODELING, I have built and very much enjoy the results of my efforts with AIRBOATS (Glynn Guest). Great fun and easy to build. My Mk111 is yet to be built.

But I am still looking for plans or any information to build landing craft. Even averall meausurement of the real thing  would get me started, any offers!.

Thanks EJ.

Hi Mick,

Firstly apologies for the delay in replying and thanks for the info.  Don't use ebay at all, simply don't trust it.

Hi EJ,

I don't have speciific plans for the LC, just the kit build instructions.  However, you might find this site useful, at least it wil give you some basic measurements of the real thing.

Look down the list and it gives you ship type etc, hope this helsp a bit.

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.
