Hello there, I generally build for a hobby which I enjoy, reseraching a subject isn't really my cup of tea, so its a bit of a cheek asking the following question on this V-106 German WW1 torepdo boat, although it has V-106 on the hull as well as the box art, the decals that come with the model are V-106 - 7 - and 8, there isn't a great deal of information around anyway, but wondering because I now have 2 of these models, would it be a simple case of building both as they are, or would they look slightly different from each-other ? The same for the larger heavy-cruiser sister ships, all the same but slightly different, with these torpedo boats come destroyer, would V-106 look the same as V-108 ? Look forward to your reply.

Hey Al. World War 1 German torpedo boats were painted black at one point in time. I would imagine that three sister ships would have come from the builder's yard in identical paint.
