This isn't 'Nam, there are rules...(any Big Lebowski fans out there?)

1. All subjects involved in the Vietnam war- Post WWII French Indochina till the American withdrawal ( 19 December 1946 - 30 April 1975 ).

2. Markings can be for any country/unit operating in the war.

3. "What-if" Only with approval from Moderators.

4. Models should be started on/after the start date for the Group Build. If the cockpit is painted, I'll make an exception.

5. Open to all scales and all kits.

6. Each completed build will get you one ticket in the raffle draw. Models must be finished by the end date of the group build.

7. If a question comes up on a build as being eligible a moderator may ask for reference information.

8. Have fun and build, build, build!

* We reserve the right to add/delete or mod any rule.

For reference, some od the countries involved were:

North Vietnam

South Vietnam

France

United States

Australia

Korea

Thailand

Laos

Cambodia

China

Russia

Malasya

That's all or at least most of the players of the South East Asia War Games.

If you know of any others add them to the list. I don't know of a figure of Jane Fonda counts.

A few were only ground insurgent forces, or suppliers with cargo ships.

There were stories of Russian pilots flying with the North once in a while.

I found the copy of our R.O.E. from back in 1971. It might not be easy to read after all this time, but I don't think there's many copies around.

North Korea pilots also served in North Vietnam, flying combats missions and claimed to shoot down US aircrafts . Though, North Vietnamese Communist always denied presence of the foreign troops on its soil during the Vietnam war .

An article published in a Vietnamese newspaper in August 2007 reported that in 2002 the bodies of the 14 North Korean Air Force personnel killed during the Vietnam War had been buried in a cemetery in Vietnam’s Bac Giang Province and had been disinterred and repatriated to North Korea. In a letter to the newspaper to correct several mistakes made in the original article, a retired North Vietnamese major general who had worked with the North Koreans revealed that a total of 87 North Korean Air Force personnel had served in North Vietnam between 1967 and early 1969, during which time the North Koreans had lost 14 men and had claimed to have shot down 26 American aircraft.[2]

Communist China also sent 320000 troops into North Vietnam during Vietnam war.

China played an active and crucial role in supporting their communist ally in the Vietnam war the with more than 320,000 Chinese troops stationed in North Vietnam between 1965 and 1971, peaking in 1967 with around 170,000 Chinese in the DRV. An approximately 1,000 Chinese were killed in North Vietnam in the late 1960s.
