I think the titel is a bit wrong, because it is more a all-in-one-book for vietnam gaming and modelling. Not just painting. Great work, your best book in the moment, wait for the next

I received seven new kits from Rubicon and I will be building them and sharing notes here.

M102 105mm Light Howitzer. My first ever modern artillery piece. I had to study the instructions very carefully.





BTR60 which can be built as PA (unpainted) or PB (green) versions. This is a really lovely kit.
The tyres are rubber.





PAVN



US Army

Those look pretty good, especially the BTR.

I agree with trev, but would be curious to see the figures compared to other ranges.

Oh yep! Been a while since I went through! Thank you, they scale well, despite the more realistic proportions of the Rubicon figures.
