Brought peace to the Paziﬁk: the U.S. Navy Landing Ship Medium
Tinkering is one of the most popular hobbies. And when the result is a 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 this is offered by the US Navy Landing Ship Medium from Revell with a difficulty level of 4 (12+).
In the war effort, the LSM class was indispensable
"We go out when others come in" - this is the courageous motto of the German Society for the Rescue of Shiﬀbrüchiger (DGzRS).
From 1944 onwards, the Landing Ship Medium (LSM class) was used by the U.S. Navy as a landing craft in the Pacific against the Japanese enemy. They were the main component of the U.S. naval force in landing troops and vehicles on beaches occupied by the enemy.
Several LSM-class Schiﬀe were sunk by kamikaze attacks by the end of the war - but their reputation remains legendary decades after the Second World War!
