Well, Phouc Mi.

Got home from the family vacation and have been reading "Nam Sense" and painting up 15mm stuff for Vietnam.  I really want to run a Tour of Duty campaign using Charlie Don't Surf this summer, and I think we are going to have a play test for the lads on Monday.  A US rifle company vs a company or so of Charlie, or Mr. Charles as it might very well turn out.  I think I will set the scenario as well as the future campaign in 1966, the VC were still trying some big unit battles that might work out better on the tabletop.

So far I've only got one helicopter done, a gunship, UH-1B.  Its one of the older Battlefront models.  The older ones had two different sets of blades, "parked" and moving.  The parked blades were metal and kind of heavy, the "flying" ones were cut from an acrylic.  The problem is the new releases only have the parked blades, but they are plastic now and appear easier to work with.  So hooray for that.

I'll keep you posted as to how this goes...
