| Description

The Landing Craft, Vehicle, Personnel (LCVP) or Higgins Boat was one of the most vital pieces of Allied naval equipment of the Second World War. Used not only during Operation Overlord and the invasion of occupied France, but also throughout American naval operations in the Pacific, proving to be particularly useful during the operations at Okinawa and Iwo Jima. With a shallow draught and full-width bow ramp it was able to offload its cargo and leave the beach in just 3 to 4 minutes.

Recommended!

A lovely straight forward build - so definitely good for younger builders. Two interesting and contrasting camouflage suggestions. As has been suggested,figures would bring this up to a five star review, and the 'Life- preservers' are rather on the small side. A very good job, Airfix

Just needs the crew

This is an excellent kit with extremely good detailing and parts fit. It builds up logically with no surprises and has sufficient parts to make it a surprisingly satisfying model to complete. The RN/USN options inspire both to be built and if there were some crew figures included, as in the LCM kit, It would certainly be a 5 star review.
