Hey Oztruck

A navy mate of mine came over with the photo below.  How about that for you next landing craft project?



Cheers

The bow would be a least 1mtr tall on that one, I would need a trailer and boat ramp to get it into the water, but the good side would be we could sit in it. ;D Any body got a Leopard? ::)

Very nice to see it in action! :-)

One question though, did you do any calculations as to the weight, engine power etc. needed so that it wouldn't get stuck on the "beach" when landing the tanks?

Cheers, Morgan D

The trick is to hit the beach hard enough to stop the craft from swinging side to side but soft enough that when the weight of the tanks is off the craft it will float off the beach with a bit of power from the props.
The real landing craft also had this trouble of getting stuck and they went to extra trouble to fit "Sand Anchors" and very big winch on the rear of the craft
