I hope Darth Panda does not mind, but I took his excellent LCI drawing and, just like was really done in WW II, converted it to a Landing Craft Support (Large). I am not sure about the three inch gun on the bow, but I grabbed it from a contemporary, Gunship's tug Cherokee. I used the 40mm off the parts sheet with the double thick barrel because the real ship had twin water cooled 40mm, not single air-cooled, like on the LCI.

I am looking for feedback and comments please. I hope I did the crediting correctly. Thanx.

Even if it's a twin mounting, seen from the side it appears as a single barrel. All guns below 3" are single pixel.
Anyway a good addition.

40mm guns have traditionally been two pixels.

Thank you! This is great - not one of the famous or
glamorous ships of WWII, but a staple of every
amphibious operation 1944 - 1945.
