There are rules of course. For example, it cannot be seen as *promoting* Nazism, etc... A few months back a revell plastic model was pulled from shelves because it was of that 'nazi bell ufo' from the conspiracy shows. It showed the Nazis in a light that they had accomplished more than they did.  So don't expect anything to be allowed that props them up, but be bad guys? Sure.

Nazi symbols are allowed so long as you get to kill the guys holding them?
