Brought Peace to the Pacific: The US Navy Landing Ship Medium

Crafting is one of the most popular hobbies. And when the result is a ship model that not only impresses with its attention to detail, but also with the history of its original, the hobbyist's heart beats faster. All of this is offered by Revell's US Navy Landing Ship Medium with difficulty level 4 (12+).

The LSM class was indispensable in wartime operations

“We drive out when others come in” – that is the courageous motto of the German Society for the Rescue of Shipwrecked Persons (DGzRS).

From 1944, the Landing Ship Medium (LSM class) were used as landing ships by the US Navy in the Pacific against Japanese enemies. They were the main component of the American naval forces when landing troops and vehicles on enemy-held beaches.

Several ships of the LSM class were sunk by kamikaze attacks by the end of the war - but their reputation remains legendary decades after the Second World War!

Now faithfully rebuild the US Navy Landing Ship Medium in 1:144 scale!
