Commission Build - Just a question.


Recommended Posts

Very recently I acquired a Soldbuch (as well as some photos and a Kriegstagbuch for a period when one of his ships was sunk) for a Kriegsmarine officer who ended up commanding destroyers from early 1943 to wars end, having served on Scharnhorst from at least 1938 to 1941. It is such a nice set and the research potential is huge and after doing some looking, it turns out that Trumpeter actually do models of all 3 of the destroyers he commanded in 1:350 & 1:700 scale and I have been toying with the idea of commissioning a build of one of the models. I'm not the greatest model builder in the world and haven't done any since I was around 14 plus I see the examples by others with the weathering and seascapes and know full well that it would be beyond me.

But if I was to commission such a build what would I be responsible for providing?

Obviously one of the model kits but would I also be responsible for finding out what the camouflage scheme was like for the period the build would reflect in case the one in the instructions/guide was wrong?
