Kit #62 - LCI(G) / LCS(L) CENTRAL PACIFIC

LCI(G) / LCS(L) CENTRAL PACIFIC

The LCI(G)ís were the outgrowth of a need for support craft for beach invasions. Off shore ships couldnít supply enough support and the solution was to arm landing craft to provide close-in fire support.

These support craft LCS(L) were highly successful and after the war Japan received 53 and many allied nations used them as gunboats. The LCS(L)ís were redesignated as LSSLís in 1949. The kit is based on drawings of these craft, with many details taken from photographs. The kit is cast in a soft styrene-like gray resin. There are two craft in each kit. The LCI(G) / LCS(L) CENTRAL PACIFIC kit consists of a resin hull and parts & instructions. The kit is cast in a soft styrene-like gray. One piece molds were used to make the castings. The kit assembles like an injection molded kit.
