I have this kit:

and this crew kit:
https://www.car-model-kit.com/model-kit-military-6288-2cm-flak-38-mit-sd-ah-51-1-35

The gun crew is designed to fit the same gun as is mounted in the vehicle. But,as can be seen, the crew are wearing the Luftwaffe Fliegerbluse. Would this uniform be appropriate for a crew of an AFV? Or should they more appropriately be wearing panzer crew uniforms? If there is a discrepancy in uniform, could I fix it by placing the unit in the Hermann Goering Div?

These pics might help:

The crewman on the right in the vehicle on the left, seems to be wearing a standard Feldbluse.


I wouldn't use the Dragon crew.
