Trakz TX0005 LVT-A2 Conversion
While the LVT-2 was initially built as an unarmed cargo carrier, it was deemed necessary to create an armoured version for service in the infantry assault role. Designed to fit Italeri's LVT-A1 kit, this conversion set comprises resin parts to build the complete interior "tub", a new front cab, .50 and .30 cal MGs, cargo compartment gun rails and hatch details. A large photoetch sheet is provided and features an engine grille, gun mounts for the cargo rails, MG shields, ammo boxes, interior engine screen, rear hull mud chutes, light guards and periscopes. Instructions are very clear and well detailed.
