So I did it, as mentioned in a previous post on this (and the old) forum I wanted to age my
patches and although it did me hurt to do so I even damaged my 23 FG patch wich took me 7 hours to paint.
And I had the Chit removed from the inside of the jacket to the back where it belongs. Anyway here's the result so far:

The aging is subtle, the scrape on the Tiger's wing a little less so...that musta hurt :x

I always wonder if the Chinese on the chits is all legit. Do the cheaper ones say something like:
I AM AN AMERICAN EGGPLANT. IF FOUND WATER DAILY AND KEEP IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT. REWARD 50 BASKETS OF LICE. APPLY CHINA NATIONAL AIRLINE AND STORM DOOR COMPANY.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Well, it wasn't cheap :? It's from G&B (Flightsuits) and set me back $ 128,- the CBI and AAF patch another $ 90,- I went
to the site/forum ot "the Original AVG" for infromation and there I found out that the members were very positive about
this version.

The text is correct as far as I can tell, for comparisson
