I thought you might enjoy these assembly reports from a couple of European model mags.

Wow! Thanks again, Ed, for all the photos of this great kit. The Perth Modeler's site link with photos of all the parts is particularly fascinating.

I guess those photos answer (in the negative) the question I was going to ask you -- does the kit include any crew figures?

You'd think Italeri, with their long history of different 1/35th scale figures, would have had some in this kit.

Oh well, I guess its up to some after-market company to make some crew figures for this baby -- I'd say a dozen would be about right...

Just what I was thinking, 12.
The closest I've found is from Trumpeter. They have a 6 figure package called LCM crew.

Those Trumpeter figures look pretty good -- they'd fit the bill nicely...

I ordered 2 kits of them yesterday. I've also gone through my 1/35th armor spares box and found lots of helmets and unassembled tank crewmen. Not that I care about the bodies but there are a lot of arms in some pretty good positions that might work with the LCM kit.
