I edited the history file and added a color photo of 63-13112.

I found the photo at lets see your vintage photos but didn't figure out who the people are.

We still need a picture of this Helio with the S/Vietnam Rondel.

Note the difference in the camoflauge patteren on the two photgraphs this is somewhat unusuall not sure what is going on here.
