Eric. C Posted October 14, 2013 Share #1 Posted October 14, 2013 I have never been on a forum or done anything like this before so please bear with me. About 40 years ago I built the Sergal Victory (50In.) and unfortunately I no longer have it. I was over in England this spring and went to see the Victory. I was so impressed that I decided I would like to build it again. So I researched kits and reviewed several builds on MSW and decied to go with the Jotika kit. I ordered the kit through Rick Shousha and received it on Friday Oct.11,2013. I spent the day checking all the parts against the parts manual and became upset and frustrated with the kit and almost wanting to send it back. The kit was missing the registration form so I have no number to register it (in order to get updates); was missing a walnut sheet of parts (minor in itself for it can be obtained) but more important the kit was missing all eight sheets of brass parts. A couple of walnut strips are broken and not sure about all the bits and bobs in the small cardboard box. I have been in contact with Rick Shousha and he assures me that all will be corrected. Rick has been very patient with fielding all my emails this weekend. As my mood improved I started to cut out and fit parts and have come to realize that this is going to be - for lack of a better term - an interesting build. I am hoping that some more experienced Victory builders read this for I am open to all suggestions, tips, tricks and/or comments. Still trying to figure out what "Topic Tags" are and how to post pictures. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
