They look nice.

There will be the conflict between utility (my forces can use LVT-4s) and shinyness (Amtanks).

Mildly disappointed that you can only build a waterline or a full height version, a lot of spare parts if you choose the former.

Outside of my interests, but the work and effort that Rubicon put into their models along with all the options and versions built in, some of the more established model making companies can learn from this.
Well done hope to see more stuff in the future.

Hi,
The kits look very nice, do you have any details on the crew figures which will also be available.

Cheers,

Philip

I wasn't planning to build any Pacific War armour, but this range of vehicles looks so good I may end up doing some.  It would be great if there was at least one Japanese tank in the works to compliment these.  WG have the Chi Ha covered, so maybe one of the other more common types?  Or some Japanese artillery?

Start working on the LVT crew. Planning to have 2 to 3 crew sets for the complete LVT range. Still a WIP, but looking into options like with or without a life vest, USMC and US standard uniform, etc. Feedback welcome!







Enjoy!
;)

These really do look to be shaping up to a great set of kits!

Just have to try and work out how I can use them...  :P did any LVTs get used at all during the Burma campaign?

Not sure yet, what army unit will man the LVTs?

Probably 79th Armoured Division.

Buffaloes were used by the British during what was mostly cold, wet weather.  So the crews are usually seen in winter gear such as "pixie suits".
