by  Pit-Road
Product Description
This item is an injection-plastic ship model kit. 238 parts.   Click here for sizing chart.

Able to cruise over land or water at speeds up to 40 knots and carrying up to 60 tons of payload, the Japanese version of the US-built LCAC (Landing Craft, Air Cushioned) greatly expands the capabilities of the US Navy.

Pit-Road's LCAC kit features fine molding and exquisite detailing throughout, with photo-etched metal parts included to enhance the detail even further. The air cushion is rendered in soft black vinyl. Includes a big sheet of decals and a full-color decal placement and painting guide (all text is in Japanese). A joint project with Trumpeter.

This release features resin parts to show the LCAC in a "parked" position with the skirt deflated, so you can build the front gate down in "deployment" position (the original inflated rubber skirt is also included). And to assist with that, Pit-Road has even included a pre-built and prepainted 1/144-scale M1A1 Abrams tank! Nice! Also includes photo-etched metal detail parts. An excellent kit of an interesting subject!
