Ah ok! That makes perfect sense. Do you think that perhaps spraying the belt's backside with dull coat finish would help keep it from flaking?

Maybe. Though mine's okay now it's on the figure.

Might also be able to sandpaper it smooth to get rid of the excess bits?

I changed mine to SS Standartenführer. I been saving this HS for this figure specifically.
Jager scarred face will work great for the SS Das Reich team I'm building.

Here’s my Jager head sculpt on a grenadier. I’ve changed the jacket, head and boots on the tank commander. I just need his collar tabs to finish. I wanted to buy the Brown Arts tanker boots but ended up cutting down an old pair of jack boots.

Perhaps thats what it is? Dont know....
Always thought the Johann figure was awesome - the Erwin figure is "good" in my opinion. Would buy the head to use as a custom - but no interest in the set.
Cant remember any scene in Das Boot (original) where this look appears?
