    My ideal A-2...is it really too much to ask?

    Can you image what an original SAT would bring on the market?

    Buzz L-2A with painted Korean War Chit.

    Thanks Paddy! Jerome did an outstanding job with the chit. He is truly a master artist, and a heck of a good guy. I can't recommend him enough!

    Buzz L-2A with painted Korean War Chit.

    I had Jerome (Cheaterome) paint my Buzz L-2A with a Korean War blood chit that was copied from an original L-2A from the C-47 unit the "Kyushu Gypsies." While Jerome had the jacket I was able to come across an original Kyushu Gypsies patch on Ebay which I later had put on the jacket. Here's...

    '40's horesehide civilian A-2 style jacket

    Mark, your civilian A-2 looks an awful lot the one my grandad is wearing in this picture. If you look closely, you can see his jacket also has the G-1 style front zipper and the pocket flaps and collar details which are very similar to your jacket.

    Mark, was the original makers label in the jacket? If so who was it?

    NEW ELC .50CAL A2

    I agree, the knits on the newer ELC jackets are far better than the ones from years past. The knits on my RW "warhorse" 1401P are also holding up just fine. I've had no problems with "ballooning cuffs."
