I need images of any Japanese WWII T101-103 class landing ship.

Page 214 in your Conways 1922-46 reference book.
Displacement:870 tones
Dimensions: 236"-3" pp, 246'-1" wl, 246' oa x 29'-10" x 9'-8"
Machinery: 1-Shaft geared turbine, 2 boilers, 2500shp=16kts
Armament 1-3in/40 AA, 6-25mm AA

I am drawing up a 1/72nd scale plan set, and would like more photographic or model references.

Thanks.

Too Slow,

Since there was no new images or information this week, I went ahead and finished up the plans with the information I have.

Just a few markups to fix from here.

Sea Trials Successful. After three weeks of construction this once piece of plywood functions well as a 1/72nd scale LST.
The tank is a modified Micro X Tech R/C model
