I just so happen to have some from my build. You will have to scale them up to 1/16 for full size, but all the measurements are correct. There should be a build blog on this site of it also. The one I made is truly amphibious so you would only need one.
PM me for more information and price.

Track was from Mato Mart in Canada. Wheels and axles were "donated" by a M26 Pershing tank.

Hi Will,

No, I used 1/8 plywood, but it could be made from styrene in that thickness for the strength needed for the suspension.

Did you find the build log on it?

Yes, I did while on active duty back in the 80's. Here is a video of it in the creek.

Herman that is just plain bada$$. I was facinated with all that you did to fabricate these amphibius vehicles when I seen them first hand @Danville last year. I just have to say that you do amazing work.

Thanks for that comment Chiefsonn! I have found that it keeps me off the street and out of the bars.

Willhappy, try a search for LVTP-7 in the upper right corner of the page.

hi green
Hell your lvtp-7 just looks so good. Found other pics of lvtp-7.
I know that i keep asking you all these questions, so i hope a few more would be ok.
For the control of the motors did you uses gears or a speed control that controled both of the motors like the sabbertooth controler

Hi Will,

Questions are not a problem and I will answer as much as I know. I used 4 brushless motors and 4 speed controls in the LVTP-7 with channel mixing on a Futaba 10C raido. This has given me independent control of all 4 motors and paired control of the track motors and the water jet motors.
