Johnny,
Your patches look very nice. Are they paint on leather?

Cheers,

P.S. I can make just about any WW2 US flying unit emblem, Official or Unofficial, I have a vast archive of images to work from, or I can work from a color photo/sketch sent to me.

Now I don't see a patch of the 56 fighter group, do you need examples off them? You would make people happy if you
made those. Let me know and I scan them for you.

I have just about ANY ww2 USAAF/USN/USMC one you can think of image wise and a lot of Unofficial ones you don't see ain any books, the 56th is no problem , I have two styles, no way to load them ,but I can make them, if you or anyone has a specific one they want done I can work from a color copy sent to me with the order , feel free to send scn via PM , but will need a "Hands On" copy if you order please.
