    Hello, well they just put the outline one that you can find inside ( those are historicaly accurate) on the shoulder. I have never seen one on a real L-2a .
    I think they just want to be original and thought that if during that time they run out of the color one, they used the outline one. BR make a lot of this "what if..." scenarios for the better and the worst.
    Personaly I prefer the color one, the outline one is just believable.

    All originals, I handled, plus all Google and other photos are like this...colored shoulder insigna.
    IMHO another BR invention. ...but I am convinceable...

    Agree with Pilot. The only ones I’ve seen have colored Roundels.

    Like you, I think it's more like a fantasy from BR. The color roundel can still be applicate on it, in case of

    I totally lost confidence in BR if authenticity compared to originals is requested.
    This happened since the red knitwork on their B-10 version invention... plus a few other details of their recent jacket creations... and now this....
    RMcC Japan and others ( for nylons / cloths jackets ) are the better option IMHO.

    Looks cool, but as others have said, I never have seen any like that before.

    I do think it looks kind of cool myself, a little more understated. Shame that there's no historical precedent for it though!
