hi Art .Please assessment ( sory my English is not good) ;)

The reconstruction B 3 was also the right decision.
Why did I do it ? the answer is easy ; because thanks to these People I can be who I am now
I can not have contact with them and that's all I can do for them; and to commemorate, / strengthen the memory of them in this way...

History my B3 and rebuild
a jacket found in the attic house on village by a man who was a witness katastrofy liberator B24 Dinah Might 13 september 1944 .Man claimed that he got B3 from pilots. B24 .Jacket was in very poor condition but I decided to repair
Skin of a sheep prepared my friend who is a tanner profession and is a glider pilot.(hobby) ( it Zdzisław Bednarczuk)
that's him; ) http://pre.egc2013.eu/pilots/132/

From oryginal B3 I try to recover from it all the elements that are good only ; belts, trimmings, buckles, sleeves skin, spec label , skin hanger ect. All sewing my colleague ( furrier professional) Z Suchanek, from my city Bielsko. This is his workshop here sewing my B3 ; (clik TERAŻNIEJSZOŚĆ (picture )

You got this one - I saw it in eBay 1 month ago.
I am speechless - marvelous job. But why don't you use the same russet mouton but black ? so it now has front & back in diff leather color ?

I agree with you. Why not use a similar colour? Each to there own, but I think the jacket has been ruined.
