My 30th patch - PBR Vn RD515 River Patrol Boat Patch


Recommended Posts


Did this for someone who had owned one of the rare originals of this patch, so I got really nice pictures and measurements to work from!


Here it is in progress, sitting on my print-out of the original model:




Here it is finished (and the lighting isn't the best, as these never photograph the same as they look in real life):




Di it on a piece of original Vietnam-era OD twill from a shirt sleeve. This was really fun, and I really enjoyed it!

Looks great. I wonder what pressing it in a book for a while would do?

Funny how those of us who have made reproduction items strive to make them look as authentic as we can yet abhor repros sold as authentic.
