Dragon 1/16 SS-Unterscharfuhrer Model Kit
Model Number: 1624
The Dragon 1/16 SS-Unterscharfuhrer is a plastic model kit in the Dragon Action Figures range. Non-commissioned officers, rank was shown on the shoulder straps alone, by means of a strip of braid (Tresse) around the edges of the shoulder strap sewn just inside the Waffenfarbe edge piping. The lowest NCO rank, SS-Unterscharfuhrer, had braid around the long and rounded edge of the shoulder strap only. From the rank of SS-Scharfuhrer and above, there was a strip of Tresse across the bottom edge as well. A series of silver pips denoted the higher ranks. The SS-Oberscharfuhrer had a single silver pip at the bottom end of the shoulder strap, the SS-Haupscharfuhrer had two silver pips set lengthwise along the shoulder strap, while the SS-Sturmscharfuhrer had three silver pips. Like NCOs in the Wehrmacht, ranks above SS-Unterscharfuhrer wore a strip of silver Tresse around the collar edge. Both the black chevrons and black shoulder straps appear to have been issued throughout the war. At the beginning of the war, the Tresse worn on the shoulder straps was in an aluminum weave cloth. However, as the war progressed, the braid was increasingly replaced with subdued grey silk.
