    Here are some previous builds of Vietnam participants.

    Starting with the Monogram B-26K Counter Invader 1/48th with the Paragon resin modification, this was my very first Imodeler posting in 2013.

    Next my most recent Nam build is the magnificent Tamiya AH-1 Skyraider in 1/48th,"special bomb" mission.

    Next is the excellent Academy 1/72nd F-8E, this was a very nice and fun to build kit. Well detailed.

    Hase's 72nd AH-1 Skyraider, well detailed kit from Hase, excellent fit.

    Hobbycraft Douglas A-4C Skyhawk, a budget kit in place of the Hasegawa A-4's not a bad kit, fun to build. Note that the nose wheel is a separate part where as Hase has the nose wheel molded to the front strut.

    Last my Monogram F-8E with the Kendall resin wing set. Mono's F-8 stands up well to the Hasegawa F-8 series.

    Will add a couple more that I need to find images of.

    @uscusn - great representation of mid-60s power projection, USA-style. Love your prop-swingers one and all!

    Thanks Spiros appreciate that.
    Thanks John, like the Korean War, Vietnam was another decade of transition in technology.
    Thanks George, plenty of them operated in Vietnam. Quite a few in fact.
    One of my favorite stories in the Vietnam theatre of operations.
