Well, the 1/96 crew members are more dinky than the 1/72nd stuff (like the vintage CW soldiers and HO railroads). I would think Semmes and the rest of the Confederate officers wore some type of naval uniform when taking prizes/demanding surrender/boarding ships and finally when facing off with the Kearsarge. Certainly they were polished and dressed to the nines when photographed in Cape Town. How the entire ship's company appeared/dressed during long time periods apart from action is anyone's supposition.
