Here's another example of the growing Over Angry Seas line of the accessories now carried by Tom's Modelworks.  This one is a set of 1/700 scale Landing Craft Personnel LCP(Large). This is the original design before bow ramps were incorporated. These boats were used extensively throughout 1942-43 especially in the South Pacific. 
There are four 3D printer resin craft included, two waterline and two full hull. They are nicely shaped with some faint layer lines from the printing process visible. Some light sanding in spots should take care of that. The boats feature two 30 mm gun positions up front, benches a.  click images

The instructions consist of images printed on the box panels. Pretty simple, but no assembly is required. 

This is the first time I have seen correct early war landing craft offered in 1/700 scale. Now at last you can do an accurate Guadalcanal Diorama or properly outfit your early APD's and Troop ships. 

This is kit 1/700 LCP(L) Early US Navy Landing Personnel (Large) - (x4) for $18.99 US. Check this set and others on Tom's Modelworks website with secure online ordering.
