About This Set:
This set contains most of the characteristic combat uniform patches the U.S. Army airborne forces operating throughout WW2. Divisional patches are included for the 82nd, 101st, 17th, 11th, and 13th Airborne as well as pocket patches for the 513th, 506th, 501st, and 502nd PIR, cap patches for both glider and parachute infantry (in both officer and enlisted styles). Shoulder flags and flag armbands are also included.
New additions allow you to model more 82nd AB subjects, glider pilots, and C-47 pilots. New patches include two more 101st AB variant patches (Bitish-made and Bando's "Type 8"), 1st Allied Airborne, 18th Airborne Corps, 11th Airborne (PTO), Generic Army Air Force circle, Troop Carrier and 9th AAFpatches (letting you create carrier pilot figures), Troop Carrier jacket patch (non-regulation), silk glider pilot wings on khaki and O.D. backers, field made bazooka patch (82nd AB), more cap patch variants, loose Airborne tabs, and new PIR unit patches for the 507th and 508th. Use these along with our 101st and 82nd Airborne helmet decal sets (sold separately) to create unique, detailed figure subjects.
About CVI insignia:
CVI's insignia is printed on a dense-weave 100% cotton cloth fabric. Our art is re-rendered from original images in order to give you the greatest scale fidelity. Each set includes a detailed instruction sheet, usually with application illustrations, and a baggie to keep your loose and uncut patches together. To apply, just cut out the patch and use the adhesive of your choice. See our techniques page
for more information.
