Revell of Germany 1/144 Landing Ship Medium
Last year and a half I devoted it to 1/144 scale, this is the last model of that effort, I improved many details with plastic sheets, strips and rods, copper wire, brass rod and tubes, piano wire, thin aluminum paper and replaced the weapons and drums with items from L´Arsenal and Black Cat, the gun director was sourced from Shapeways, I also used some of the photoetched bits form the Nautilus Models set. After studying several pictures of these ships I decided to include a canopy for the conning tower and a basketball set at the base of the tower. The loading gates were linked to the cylinders to open and close like the real thing and finally I gave the Shermans extra armor and the deep wading system. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
