What's in the box? LCVP, Lindberg, 1/32
Before Italeri came up with a new large scale LCVP there was only Lindberg's in 1/32. Although it is not state of the art it isn't that bad, it can absolutely be more refined by an ordinary builder but going the Lindberg way to get a stunner is somewhat masochistic. By today's standards this is a toy but maybe you got it for nothing or you want to build the model you built a man's age ago, I say build it! There are 90 parts of light grey styrene; you'll have it built and painted in a weekend. Mark Gloor did a good job on his LCVP.
Single piece hull, inside.
Single piece hull, outside. The ribbed structure on the sides are complete and do not need any further assembly other than some small details.
Decals for one individual LCVP, printed paper sheet for signal flags.
