Great pics!

The F-105 is on TDY from a PACAF unit, as no F-105 squadron was ever PCS to South Vietnam.

The aircraft in #11 is an RAAF Caribou.

Fake Indochina items made of Swiss camo cloth appeared on the market circa 2000-2001. I am afraid this is one of them.

This reminds me of the SPA 3 and SPA 67 insignia. These were French fighter squadrons during the Indochina war. I have never seen this design with VNAF units though.

"The aircraft was used to teach students about science, technology, engineering and math." Given the paint job, it is a good thing she did not mention History.

These are mechanics coveralls. Definitely not a flight suit. The embroidery on back is not period done. Which leads me to think that the patches and front embroidery are not original either.

It looks rather fine on your thumbnail. By fine I mean consistent with real wartime examples. But this is always a minefield.

But the price was way too low, the photos are quite crappy, and I am starting to have second thoughts. I have not paid yet, as the seller takes only bank trasnfers and has a no return policy.

Both are OK. The model with the FFL "grenade" is actually type II. The grenade was added to reflect inclusion of 13th DBLE and 3rd REI elements in the group.
