Trumpeter 1/144 LCM 3 USN D-Day Landing Craft Kit

The LCM(3) class of landing craft was evolved from an earlier series of UK landing craft and the derivations initially adopted by the US. With the LCM(3), this would be one of the common types used by both nations. The LCM(3) can carry a 30 ton tank to shore or 60 fully loaded troops. The landing craft were stored aboard transport vessels and hoisted into the water, manned by a crew of four. With a loading ramp for a bow, the LCM could take its cargo of vehicles and/or troops right up to the beach for action.

The LCM(3) was 50 feet long, 14 feet 1 inch wide, powered by twin diesels and armed with a pair of 50 caliber machine guns.


The Kit:

Molded in light gray styrene, the kit features scribed details on all of the visible surfaces. The kit consists of 48 parts on two sprues, plus the hull.

The kit starts with the one-piece hull which accepts the deck and frame structures. The bow ramp itself is a nicely molded and is positionable. The same is true of the armor-enclosed helm that sits atop of the rear deck.

The twin 50 caliber machine guns are mounted on molded stands and the armor plating is represented.

Markings are included for a typical D-Day LCM, with extra numbers provided to tailor the model to a particular craft that you might care to represent.


This kit requires paints and glue to be completed. Not included. Available separately.
