Landing Craft Mechanized (LCM) Models

Product Options



The Landing Craft Mechanized (LCM) or Landing Craft Mechanical was a landing craft designed for transporting equipment and troops to the shore. They came to prominence during WW2 for various Allied amphibious assaults. The LCM-8 ("Mike Boat") was used by the US Navy and Army as a river boat and mechanized landing craft during the Vietnam War and many subsequent operations. The "Mike Boat" term refers to the military phonetic alphabet, LCM being "Lima Charley Mike".  Over 12,000 LCMs have been made since WW 2. We offer replica models of all LCM variations- Mark 1 through 8.

Any service era or vessel configuration - We can build a model of them all - your pick.

We offer our Landing Craft Mechanized (LCM models in three size/scale offerings: 14.0 inches (1/60 scale), 19.0 inches (1/48 scale) and 25 inches (1/36 scale).  We offer these popular sizes for easy ordering and selection.  However, if you would like your model made in a size other than those sizes listed, please contact us with your request. We can also put a customized load of equipment on your model.  Custom orders are our specialty!

Our models are made-to-order, meaning that we do not stock any pre-made models.  Only when a customer tells us the size and/or scale desired do we build the model. Each model is exquisitely crafted by our master model builders and comes fully assembled with a solid hull - hand carved from kiln-dried mahogany.  Other parts are made from a variety of woods, putty, resin and metals. Every model includes pedestals, a polished mahogany base board, and a name plate.  Options include keel block mounting, waterline models, ships seals and ribbons, and weathering paint schemes.

The model build time is generally 24 weeks from receipt of the order and deposit. The normal procedure is a 50% deposit with the commissioning, with the balance due prior to shipping.  Note that prior to shipping, we take a series of photos of the model and send them to you for final review and approval – so you know exactly what your model will look like and allow for any necessary modifications. Once you have approved your model, we’ll collect the final balance and she will be shipped in a robust shipping crate and insured for your protection.

FREE SHIPPING in the USA - Note that our model prices include shipping and insurance within the USA.

Shipping costs outside the USA will depend on the model size ordered and shipping destination. You will be responsible for any applicable taxes or duties, based on the commercial invoice value for the model.
