Lindberg 1:125th Scale
(Linding Craft Infantry)
This is the old Lindberg "Landing Craft, Infantry"
(LCI), approximately 1/125th scale. I was given the kit several years ago,
prior to which I did not know of its existence. It's not bad provided one makes a
few minor improvements. I replaced the ugly kit guns with some H-R 20mm castings. I found
a few suitable life rafts in my spares box, to which I added mesh bottoms. The crew
figures came from another Lindberg kit, the LCU, which is not as hard to find as the LCI.
I painted the model using the now-defunct Floquil Marine colors, using a template from a
Floating Drydock WW2 camouflage book.
