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.

US Navy LST Boat 24 Landing Ship Tank WWII MBLST Wood Model Assembled
The LST program was developed in response to a need for armored infantry divisions in invasions by sea. LST 393, Sicily 1943. The ships were designed with an innovative ballast system which allowed the flat-bottomed ships to sit lower in the water during ocean transit for seaworthiness purposes, then, by pumping the ballast tanks dry, to raise up in the water, facilitating shallow-draft landing operations. The ballast system was adapted from the systems used by fleet submarines. The design for the first LST was submitted by John C. Niedermair in November of 1941. The sketch he made became the design for more than 1,000 L. After a few alterations the final length was 328 ft. Beam, and a draft of 3 ft. She was able to ride higher in the water when in landing trim. LSTs were a high priority during the war, the second-largest shipbuilding initiative in the history of Mankind. Before the tests were completed on the LST, construction had already commenced. The LST was built in a variety of “Cornfield Navy” shipyards, in rather unlikely locales: Seneca, Ill. Evansville and Jeffersonville, Ind. And Pittsburgh and Ambridge, Penn. The Navy was forced to modify bridges, through a “Ferry Command, ” to bring the LSTs to the oceans. About 670 LSTs were constructed inland. Many other LSTs were built in existing Navy yards. In fact, the first LST actually took the berth of an already laid aircraft carrier keel at Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Corporation, so important was the LST construction program. In total, eighteen shipyards produced more than a thousand LSTs in three years, a remarkable feat by any reckoning. At the beginning of 1943, the schedule allowed four months from the time the keel was laid on a new LST to her final fitting-out and commissioning; that schedule was reduced to two months by the end of the war. From June 1943 in the Solomons to August 1945, the LST was a key element in WWII. They participated in Sicily, Italy, Normandy, Southern France, the liberation of the Philippines, and the capture of Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
