Hey everybody.

Not for moment, but during next months I will search a LCM 3 from speedline models.

I tried to contact the person of speedline with email and facebook, but no answer.

I search a kit ready to run, or to built.

If you want to sell yours, think about me.

I would give a bit of caution to buying one directly - I have heard nightmares by several people who placed orders and had to get payment back six months later due to no kit arriving. More that the chap was too busy to make them rather than a bad seller.

Thank you guys for links.

But before place an order, I tried to contact seller do know if he delivered in France and I have no answer. A member of French forum say than it is difficult to buy on this shop.

It is for this reason I search a model to built or rtr from a member or an owner.

I m so disapointed to have missed your model Adam... :| :|

I know it is not the same thing but what about the mass produce Torro 1/16 LCM 3 ? It is actually a fibreglass hull as well and the details are not bad.

For torro, not details like speedline. Differents small mistakes and the system to close/ open the front door.

It will be the Torro, only in last time.

I don't think Fred is interested in the Torro because it has too many inaccuracies and nowhere near the detail of the speedline and the Torro does not have the servo operated front ramp that the Speedline LCM has.

You won’t get a speedline new. He’s selling off existing stock and retiring. Mountfleet do a semi kit

Torro's (KY Model) LCM3 isn't bad & can be detailed nicely. Granted, the ramp action isn't 100% accurate with the original's fully arrangement but could be modified if you want to go to the trouble. If its the oil canning you want, get some plastic strips & putty.

Another option would be to get SanJiang's ABS card kit & go to town.

Maybe, I will buy the Torro, but in last resort.

For moment, I can wait few months before buy one.

Good evening gentlemen.

If someone see a speedline models LCM3 to sale somewhere, contact me with MP. I watch often on Ebay.fr, Ebay.uk, Ebay.com and Ebay.de for a speedline LCM3.

There is a LCM in germany and I have contact the seller, but no answer. But few days after, I have seen it was a LCM6.

This is not urgent and I can waiting several months, but I don't search every days, and If someone see one these boats, contact me please.

Adam, I regret so much not having bought yours, even with the cost of transport. :crazy: :crazy:

You could have driven to Dover - I would have met you there!

I don’t regret selling it, it was bloody huge and a bit of a novelty item.
