Conflict: Vietnam – Kiwimodeller.com Indochina/Vietnam Wars GB
The Indochina Wars were a series of wars fought in Southeast Asia from 1946 until 1989, between communist Indochinese forces against mainly French, South Vietnamese, American, Cambodian, Laotian and Chinese forces. The term "Indochina" originally referred to French Indochina, which included the current states of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

Voting will run for the week following the 1st of November 2016, ending Midday the 8th of November 2017. A deadlock will be decided by a separate run-off vote.
Hehe, the kit is here. Very attractive package I must say. I just had a quick browse and there is a lot of nice looking plastic in the box. Never built a Kittyhawk kit before, but apparently the fit on this one is pretty good. Decals are on the way from Hannants because the box options are apparently warbirds.
Yep that was one of the 'gripes' when the kit came out last year... decal options are all civil warbirds. Think it's AoA decals that does three or four sheets for various Vietnam era machines. And yes I'm looking forward to this build aswell.
I know how you feel Grant. I think recently there was a period of 2 months where I didn't even touch a kit. Made a start on the AFV Club Bussing Nag, but struggled to get excited about it... started on the Tamiya Corsair... and mojo issue sorted.
