One of the great 'cross-overs' between AFV modeling and Warships comes with the interest which was created with the release of some of the PT boats and Landing Craft in 1/35th scale. Here are some releases from the French company U-Model which cover many of these subjects. Did I mention transporting LCVPs by trailer?
There are three categories of releases being listed on the company website. Firstly, Naval Crew figures, secondly updates for the LCVP and PT boats and finally, a set for transporting the LCVP...

All Releases are 1/35th Scale:

Figures

UM 047 - WWII US Navy sailor at rest N1

UM 050 - WWII US Navy sailor at rest N2

UM 051 - WWII US Navy sailor at rest N3

UM 052 - WWII US Navy captain N2


LCVP Updates:

UM 049 - WWII LCVP accessories set

UM 053 - WWII LCVP Update set

UM 054 - WWII PT Boat accesories set N1


Vehicle Update:

UM 048 - WWII LCVP Transport cradle

The company website can be seen:

Hi Jim: That stuff looks great! The figures are particularly welcome. I hope that they release similar accessories for the Italeri LCM; it could really use new gun mounts, among other things. A cradle to allow it to be loaded on a Dragon Wagon's M15 trailer would be particularly nice. Cheers, Scott

Agreed, a lot of them look very suitable for conversions to tank crew etc.

I actually have the PT boat update as well as the USN lifejacket set. Both are of excellent quality and the service direct from this company was excellent as well! Chris

Hi Guys, U Models do some neat stuff for the boats, especially good news for American Boat builders although they have a range of Axis and British stuff too. Al
