Free World forces in the Republic of Vietnam faced the day-to-day paranoia of dealing with a civilian population whose loyalties could not be guessed. Any man, woman, or child of the local populace could be working for the resistance, reporting on troop movements, providing false information, or sniping at the enemy.
|Sampans were shallow-draft boats generally used for transportation of goods or people, usually in rivers or coastal areas. It was unusual for a sampan to sail far from land as they did not have the means to survive rough weather. They strived in areas normal boats couldn’t easily sail in.|

Assembling the Sampan Boats (VPA822)
|When assembling your sampan boats you have the option of using a rower or an engine operator. Below I will show you how to add either one.|
Rower. Glue the feet of the rower to the back right of your Sampan boat as shown below.
|Tip: When assembling your models it’s always a good idea to dry fit your parts before glueing.|
|Engine operator. Glue the bottom the the engine operator to the back of the boat. Don’t forget to dry fit!|
