Significant R&D on detectors for the future International Linear Collider (ILC) has been carried out by the community in the last decade. The International Large Detector (ILD) is one detector concept at the ILC where calorimetry and tracking systems are combined. The tracking system consists of a vertex detector and a large volume Time Projection Chamber (TPC). Within the framework of the LCTPC collaboration, a Large Prototype (LP) TPC has been built. Its endplate can accommodate up to seven identical modules of Micro Pattern Gas Detector (MPGD) representative of the final design. With 3 mm wide by 7 mm high pads, a point resolution of 60 microns per pad-row has been reached by a single-module of resistive anode Micromegas with fully integrated electronics. In July 2012, data were taken with 6 modules of such technology allowing the study of cracks, distorsions and module misalignment. After introducing the LP, first analysis results of multi-module configuration will be presented.
