Here is a set of high quality leather patches, hand painted by the Sean Collins (A2 Jacket Patches), on genuine leather just like originals were.
Produced to exacting details and sizes.

These depict the 75th Fighter Squadron of the 23rd Fighter Group (succeeding the AVG Flying Tigers), based in China during WW2
Flying shark-mouthed P-40s and P-51s, under Claire Chennault and Col. Robert Scott, they mounted a monumental effort against the Japanese.

This is the same set that Eastman Leather use on their Elite Units jackets (see their no longer produced H.L.B A-2 jacket)
I bought these directly from him a coupe of years ago, and as I understand he no longer paints these, but has a print on canvas process now
These could be considered collectors items.

CBI Blood Chit - 7" x 9.75"/17.5cm x 24.5cm
75th FS 23rd FG 'Tiger Shark' patch - 5.5"/14cm diameter
CBI shoulder roundel - 3.25"/8cm diameter
CBI shoulder shield - 3.25"/8cm high

These cost me well over £200, plus postage and import duties (a couple of years ago)...
£199 PPFF incl postage within the UK
Internation postage will be extra.

Thank you
