Trumpeter messed up the title, Marines don’t own LCAC’s, it is USN equipment that transports Marines. So you cannot have a Marine paint scheme because it is not there’s.

Hi, I have just received my LCAC in 1/72 scale.
Its the first time i have ventured off land and gone to sea.
Weathering Armour,Trucks etc. is reasonably easy to weather, But things at sea I have no idea, i chose this model purely because it is something totally different to anything i have done before.
Could you advise please on the kind of weathering i should be looking to do please?
Regards
Chris

Rust and many variations of it. Google lcac walkaround you will see a number of YouTube videos and images from article showing different levels of rust and striking, pick what you like and go with that.

Being an armor as well as a ship modeler, I have several 1/72 vehicles that could be transported in this. Is it capable of carrying an Abrams, or a Bradley? Humvees? What is it's capacity?


Doh!! It states all that in the review!

OK...so it's "New Content", but not a "New Release". I hadn't seen it on store shelves yet! I suppose it's OOP by now!
