    Modern US Army Air Crew Uniforms

    Post by CollectinSteve on Wed Jun 23, 2010 1:18 am

    I just finished recreating the badging on the last of my three Air Crew uniforms.

    First up, a 2003 dated set. This came to me from fellow IACMC member drmatz with only the two Airborne arcs on it and possibly the US Army tape (I forget!). Fortunately between stitch marks and some research I was able to put this one back to where it should be. I'm pretty sure I even got the correct NCO rank and Aviator's badge. Having said that, I'm not entirely satisfied with the nametape. It was chosen because it was long enough to match the larger pocket width. If anybody has a spare for an Aircrew/Tanker uniform I'd appreciate replacing this one.




    Next is a pretty beat Woodland example, dated 1996. Again, I had to compromise on one of the tapes, in this case the US Army tape. It took a while to find all the badging in about the same condition a would be found on such a uniform. Thanks to Andrew for helping me out with the Aviator's badge.




    Last is a 2007 dated A2CU set. Obviously a lot easier to badge than the earlier examples Very Happy I did notice that I should put an Airborne arc on the left arm, but I think it's OK without it.

    Yes, I just purchased a brand new Woodland set and will be fixing that one up. If I ever manage to get out of the house long enough to send you some cash for the nametape Very Happy I should get that out tomorrow.

    Here is a 2003 Woodland version. Note the similarities to the above pictured Desert uniform and the differences with the older 1990s Woodland uniform.

    Thanks go to Andrew for the name tape. The rest of the badging was added by me from new stock.

    Very nice uniforms! I'm glad to see my name tape went to good use! I'm in the process of restoring a Woodland Aircrew Uniform that belonged to an Apache pilot that was killed in a training accident in NC.
