Hi Gentlemen!
It is with great pleasure and relief that I can say that I'm feeling very well after my heart surgery 3 weeks ago, and I'm again building something...
Trying to finish the LVT-2 and after finding some pictures of this vehicle I did some minor modifications, as shown bellow.
This is not the armored version, so I removed the engine deck armor and added a canvas covered box over it.
Also changed the handles in the front.
The pictures I found show a smooth surface in the sides; I re-worked the sides.
Hope can finish it to the dead line.
Any comments or corrections will be very wellcomed!

Hilton,

Good work ont he LVT. The model looks sweet and you can make sure it is one very unique subject in the Allied Power. I see this one is ready for the painting. Have you decided the painting scheme yet? Me votes for one USMC funky camouflage scheme (blue + sand + brown or similar combination).

Keep us posted amigo.

I choice this model from our sponsor Quarter-kit because this is realy an unusual matter.
This is the LVT-2, mid-late production type, with 2 side steps in the side pontoons, also the wooden lattice floor mats is not used anymore.
The major problem was the rear engine deck intake grills : Gaso.line provides 3 Antracs models - this one, the LVT-2, the (A)1 and the (A)4.
All 3 came with the same major parts (side pontoons, deck, etc).
I had to remove the engine deck armor and improvise a canvas covered box to cover the absence of the intake grills.

For the camouflage, as I'm planning to build the other 2 versions, I will keep the 3 tone camo for the (A)4, as it is a later vehicle.

Tanks Lu and Erik for the comments,
Hilton.
