    Oct 11, 2009, 7:41 AM - A-Team Murdock's leather jacket #1

    My friend is wanting to put replicate the leather A-2 jacket worn by Murdock in the tv series. He has got a suitable A-2 jacket but cannot find any images of the tiger logo on the back. I believe it says 'Da Nang 1970' above the tiger's head but cannot find any decent hi res images of the painting. If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it. Has anyone here attempted a replica jacket?

    Thanks

    -Chris

    Probably just a flying tigers patch but I'll look.

    Thanks for the heads-up on this, mate. Never one to let the grass grow under my feet, I decided to push on and having viewed alot of a-team DVDs have now done myself a 'Murdock':

    From the front. Standard leather A2 flying coat, blue cap, check shirt, chinos and black converses:



    And from the rear. I've painted up the Da Nang 1970 tigers head as best as I can with acrylic paints. I'm not the best artist in the world, but think it's not bad. Just need to find my invisible dog Billy and I'm ready for the VA hospital! :

    First off, I apologize if bumping a thread this old is un-P.C. But in this case, perhaps better late than never could apply, right? I just finished this up yesterday. Acrylic paint on an A-2 = childhood dream come true!

    If you're still interested in the details, don't hesitate to ask.

    Just put the finishing touches on it today. Very happy with the results.

    Did your friend take any pictures of his jacket before he sold it? I'm interested in seeing how it turned out!

    In two months of searching, I haven't found anyone out there who's ever created anything remotely close like this (by all means, someone please point me in the right direction!)

    They all look good...but you can tell they are VERY CLOSE...and that's amazing considering they all have to be actually painted..and not a stencil. Congrats. The last one you posted would have to take alot of time telling the difference between the original and yours...well done!!

    My last post for now (since I keep replying to myself , lol)

    Here's about two months of practice and 13 more jackets later... finally finished my own.




    In case anyone was wondering, my first two jackets were painted solely by screen shots, but #3 and onward were painted with closeup HQ pics, so the specs and colors are pretty much spot on now.

    In two months of searching, I haven't found anyone out there who's ever created anything remotely close like this (by all means, someone please point me in the right direction!)

    Aww, well, I can help make your dream come true. I do offer my work for fellow fans, so feel free to check out my DeviantArt page for all the rambling details, and if you want to see other reviews of my earlier work, I can direct you to the Replicars message board.

    Anyone else interested can feel free to P.M. me, as I have no intention on keeping this newly discovered ability to myself. *wink*

    How difficult is it to paint on leather? What paint is best?

    I use acrylics with a sealant to prevent moisture from bleeding/rubbing off, etc.

    As for the question of its difficulty, here's a picture of my very first jacket attempt in 'er new home.



    I didn't find it hard, just hard working without HQ reference pics...
