Vietnam war is one of my favorite scenarios, this is why in my boxes stock there was a LVTP 5 from AFV Club. It’s a model of considerable size for the scale and with flat shapes, it looks more like a shoebox than a military vehicle. In order to make it look attractive, I decided to make a laborious job of interior detailing.

Fortunately, Hobby Fan offer an interior set (without engine) to improve this model which saved me a lot of problems. The size of the model makes that at times the assembly tasks are a bit difficult. After studying the instructions carefully, I started with the construction.
