Product description

The LVTP-5 (Landing Vehicle, Tracked, Personnel 5) was an American amphibious troop transport vehicle used primarily by the US Marines during the Cold War and the Vietnam War.

Areas of Use: The LVTP-5 saw service primarily in the Vietnam War, where it was used for amphibious landings and riverine operations. It was an integral part of "Riverine" warfare, helping to overcome Vietnam's difficult terrain and waterways.

                        3D SLA printing
                        In gray to paint yourself

                        The miniatures come to you unpainted and some of them have to be assembled yourself - a little superglue can work wonders here! Sometimes there may be small residues or slight damage caused by the support structures, but unfortunately these cannot always be completely avoided. But don't worry, this won't affect the quality of your model.

                        However, it should be noted that due to the 3D SLA printing process, slight distortions (up to 1mm) may occur on larger parts. However, these small imperfections are easily repaired with modeling putty (Green Stuff).

                        It's just a small part of the process that gives your set a unique character. Have fun painting and assembling!

                        Even though the figures are great to play with, it is important to remember that they are not suitable for small children. There is a risk that small parts could break off. Miniatures should not be viewed as toys.
