LCVP Higgins Boat
It's the year 2012 and it is amazing what is still out there. To me one of the quintessential WWII Marine items is the LCVP Higgins Boat which were used by many of the Marines in the Pacific.
Incredibly there are still a few out there including these two that appeared in CL a few months back in Maine.
Now I will be straight out, this would be one of the best additions to a WWII collection and wouldn't mind getting one of these historic boats for my WWII USMC collection one day. Until then I guess I will have to be happy with the Italeri 1/35 scale Model Kit!
UPDATE!!! This LCVP has been purchased!
