I'm getting a platoon of Flashpoint US army for christmas and am looking to get together a platoon of Main Force VC. While looking around at all of the companies that make VC I saw that Quality Casting make some that are defending and attacking. My question is does anyone know how these are armed and attired, like are there rpgs and MGs or are they mostly AKs and SKS; as well as do they have a main force look, or more of a local force rice farmer feel? Thanks for any help.

I thought the Quality Casting Nam figures were 20mm. I have seen references and a few photos to them, purportedly in 20mm.

Maybe they did both sizes.

Unfortunately, I do not remember that much about their appearance.

I'm pretty sure QC was 100% 15mm, and their infantry tend to the true 15mm size.

Sorry, haven't seen the Vietnam range.

GarryOwen – I think you are confusing the old & now defunct Qualiticast range of Vietnam figures which were 20mm with the Quality Castings range which are 15mm.

I think these are the figures being asked about by Tom – sadly no photos. I'm also interested if anyone has sight of these, as I'm interested in an Ontos and a Duster – neither of which are pictured…

They are listed as Quality Castings – They definately made some 15mm because that's where my 155s came from.

@xxSepsisxx
There are photos of the QC Vietnamese on this blog (scroll down to July 2012): mellis1644.wordpress.com/page/4
Looks like they have RPGs and LMGs

@Mishima
There are photos of the Duster on Irishserb's blog: link

I think I may have a QC Ontos somewhere in my pile of unbuilt 15mm vehicles, I'll have a look

@Risaldar Singh. Many thanks. I decided to go the QRF Duster route – as I'm in the UK the postage was significantly different.
