Hey, guys.
Finally finished my first jacket paint job. This is an old Cooper brand modern A2 jacket I've had for decades. I removed all the old patchs for this project so hence all the sewing holes all over. Just to be clear this is a test project not a neat finished piece. I bought a new WW2 repro Cooper jacket for the real piece I want to do, an Eagle Squadron / 4th FG paint job. Let me know what you think I'd like to hear your constructive critics and suggestions to improve on these.

Nice job, All I can say is you need to age the artwork a bit, looks to new for an old A-2. Some photos of some I've done in the past

As I stated this was a test piece on a somewhat old A2 I had just to see if I could do it at all. My intention wasn't to match the "distressed" look of the leather but merely get the hang of it.
