BRP Northern Samar LT-510 model ship
« on: August 11, 2018, 05:26:16 PM »
hello everyone, i am sharing my first built boat. i used the Lindberg LST model kit scale: 1/245. the model was deeply modified with the use of other parts like the model kit Trumpeter HMS Dreadnought 1907 scale: 1/700 and other resources to construct the ship.

the original boat was named USS LST-1064, commissioned on March 12, 1945 and decommissioned August 21, 1946. later it was named USS Nansemond County / LST 1064 on July 1, 1955. it was transferred to Japan on April 1961 - renamed JDS Shiretoko (LST-4003), returned to USA in 1975 then transferred to the Philippines on September 24, 1976 and renamed as BRP Northern Samar LT-510. fate is unknown.

The LCVP 510-1 model is a Pegasus Hobbies scale: 1/72 LCVP Landing Craft w/ Soldiers.

i gave this models yesterday as a gift to my father who is one of the officers of who served the ship between 1982-1983. dedicated also to all the Skippers, Officers and crew who served the BRP Northern Samar LT-510.

thanks everyone for reading. cheers!
