Kit #50: LCI(L) 680-1089 Bowdoor

Landing Craft Infantry Large, a colabration of the British and United States Military to provide a landing craft for seaborn invasions. Too late for the North African and Guadalcanal landings LCI(L)s were used throughout the Pacific, Atlantic and Mediterranean landings and were considered a very usefull craft and modified to perform a wide variety of duties.

May 1943, LCI(L) 351 was redesigned with a new round conning tower which was raised a level. The deckhouse was extended fore and aft and to the edge of the craft. Additional facilities were incorparated to make the craft more habitabile.

LCI(L) 680-1089 (Bowdoor) kit consists of two resin hulls and parts & instructions. The kit is cast in a soft styrene-like gray resin and will produce two ships. Two piece molds were used to make the castings, so there is no overpour to sand away. The kit assembles like an injection molded kit.
