Hi folks,

Thsi is my effort so far for a 1/35 scale LCP (L). Not sure if I can remember how to link in the pics.

Think I got it now:

I had a resin hull and the rest of the boat is built from plastic card, beam etc with some figs added. Bit of engine trouble here!

Alan,

Amazing! Love the detail you put into her. It looks like a used, but a well maintain boat. How long did it take to build?

Hi Mark,

Many thnks, Still some works to do. I built it off and on over the last 3 weeks, the figures were already done some time ago. A blue and white camo scheme might be more interesting but I used 129 as a reference as it is one of the few half decent pictures I came across.

I got the resin hull about 3 years ago and this is my first build in about 2 and a half/3 years as life had other priorities.

I was hoping Italria might come up with a new LCA or LCP (L) but to no avail, so I thoguht it would be challenging to build my own.

Cheers

Al

Hi Al,

This is a very attractive build - nice detail and great atmosphere. I liked your original finish, but with the blue camouflage it is even better. Plus, the figures really bring it to life. Well done, and thanks for sharing it with us!
