Wait for the "No! I'm Michael Farnworth...." responses.
No plan survives first contact with the dice.

ere is a long overdue update on the progress of the book.

Military Miniature Press are being very supportive and have commissioned an illustrator, a book cover designer and a cartographer.
The book has a cover design and the illustrator has prepared 20 drawings of camouflage uniforms.

I submitted the manuscript for the first time in April.
This was reviewed by the publisher and then we agreed to push for end September launch.
The book went out for peer reading and was read by the publisher, Vietnam War veteran and a well known maker of Vietnam War models.
Based on the feedback from the peer readers and the veteran, I have rewritten some parts and added some more tutorials.
I submitted the final 42,500 word main text this weekend.

The plan is to include 250 pictures.  I have a lot more so there is quite a task to work out what is needed where.
I have some pictures from Empress, Gringos and Pendraken to supplement my work.
I also have access to some historical US Department of Defence pictures.
I have recently been given 37 superb photographs from a militaria collector showing uniforms, insignia and equipment.
I am currently working on picture captions and specifying where the pictures go in the text. I am about a third of the way through this task.
I plan to get everything handed over within the next week or two.

The book is up for presale already and is due to be launched 30th September in USA. It will be available as a PDF and a physical book.
It will be printed in the USA, so I guess that printed copies will be available a month or two later in Europe.

If anybody has pictures of NVA or Australian uniforms, this would be helpful.
I could use Australian pictures but they cost about Aus$ 180 each for the license, so I won't be using them.

The project is shown in this thread
