Thank you @7th Mississippi Infantry , @Rusk County Avengers. @JPChurch I do have some images of the confederate navy personnel dress codes, and will use them for painting accordingly. I'll dig them out and post the best ones soon. @rebelatsea if you have some good color images of the uniforms, please post them also and goes for anyone else. Always looking for more data.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.
