I do have a coupe of sets of original Sonderfuhrer insignia. However the ones on this uniform are not. The collar tabs were made my Cyrus Lee, they were originally made incorrectly on green backing so I carefully cut off the silver braid, removed the green felt and replaced it with the correct blue then re-attached the braid. The shoulder boards were converted by me stitching the chevrons onto normal leutnants ones (never again!).

Thanks for the comment. It took me a long time to get the info and uniform to do this impression.

Thanks for the response.
So, you did it the hard way, so to say. :-)

I was just wondered to see that somebody is interested in a rare topic.

Prima Mark and David! The expected standard from two diligent Living Historians. And well done Mark on the SonderFuhrer uniform. I too had much difficulty with my Beamten uniforms but eventually made a good effort I feel and enjoy wearing something "different but relevant" in the field.

I may exercise one of the Beamte uniforms at RGM next weekend.... I wonder how many will get it right or even notice. :wink:

Truly great images - and you capture the ZeitGeist well

I am also looking for Sonderfuehrer collar tabs and shoulder boards, where could I get them? :P

I would like to present some of my recent pictures too. They were made nearly a month ago in Modrice (Czech Rep.) with Leica IIIa camera. :arrow:

Pictures from botty are wonderful!

Same with Menju, excellent job. I´ve already made "thumb up" by following pic on FB, it´s really impressive and one from TOP 10 I´ve ever seen. (Menju, tleskám, paráda :wink: )
