Rapid Fire! 1/72nd scale LCT 5 and 6, Normandy Landings, 6 June 1944

And now for the american LCT´s. I built four in total: 3 are scratchbuilt and 1 is Britannia Miniatures (resin and metal).

The first photos are of the LCT 5, used in Normandy. They were built with balsa wood and  other parts in plastic card.

 The figures were sent by the late Dave Howitt of Britannia Miniatures. They were part of the LCT 6 model but Dave, as always a helpful person, sent them anyhow.

The two models filled with the usual cargo: the left one with M7 Priests, and the right one with M4 Shermans.

And now for the Britannia LCT 6. This model ws not present in the Normandy models, but its just too juicy to be left aside.

The last one is a balsa wood copy of the Britannia model, this one filled with late M4 Sherman.

 The two LCT 6 filled with M4 Sherman.


  1. Tá fantástico, ó meu!
    Tens é de continuar a colocar algo nas fotos para dar uma ideia da escala. Para a próxima sugeria que colocasses o teu acessório "fio dental"...

  2. WOW!
