Topping Models USMC LVH X1 Amphibious Assault Landing Craft Hydrofoil Display
Posted on: August 16, 2019 /
This model measures approx. 14.5″ long and 4 1/8″ wide. The model sits on two metal pillars on wooden display base, 22″ x 8″. This vehicle was produced for the US Marine Corps in 1963 by the Lycoming Division of AVCO Corporation, it was equipped with a 1225 hp Lycoming TF1460BIA Gas Turbine and could travel 64 kph on land and 67 kph in water on the foils. Payload was 4.53 metric tons. I couldn’t find any evidence that the vehicle was actually produced in mass. I also cannot find this vehicle in any Toppings Models catalogs, this may have been a prototype or privately commissioned piece. Also included is an 8 x 10 photograph from the Pictoral Division of Lycoming of the actual craft in operation. The model has some condition issues; there are multiple spots where the paint has chipped. There is damage the rear hydrofoil. The rubber of the tires has cracked from age. The wheels are held in place by very small pins and do not stay fully secured easily. The model also has areas of dust that I couldn’t clean.
