Getting replacement parts from Trumpeter models.
Posted by Beau Mansfield on Sunday, April 17, 2011 2:52 PM

Have any of you guys had problems with getting replacement parts from Trumpeter models.


I have been chasing them for a replacement part now for at least five months and as far I am concern their customer service support is terrible, even to the point that they ignor repeated requests from my local hobby store.


I would be interested to hear what experiances any of you may have had to date with Trumpeter models.


Kind regards,

MMD / Squadron is also a US importer of Trumpeter now.  Try giving them a call and see if they can help.


Edit:  Sorry, just noticed your in Germany, try calling their German / EU importer.

I had a problem several years ago with the booms on a 1/32 P-38 broken.  I contacted the US distributor Stevens International.  After bugging them several times I got 1/2 of the booms.  I never did get a replacement for the other half.  I finally gave up.

Chinese companies are not known for their customer service.

Try:     Stevens International

I asked for and received replacement parts for a Trumpter ship kit very quickly and for only the cost of shipping.

Hope this information helps,

Thanks to all of you for your replys and helpful advise.

It really is a shame that a new player like Trumpeter can't get their act together when it comes to customer service.

I can't see how it will win them any friends in the long term.
