Mantua/panart Victory #782/738


Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Victory lovers 

    has anyone built the Mantua/Panart Victory # 782 or 738 either one 

I have read reviews about almost all the kit companies from the forum some good some bad, but I haven't seen any reviews on this kit, is it a good kit, are the instructions and plans any better or even with  other kits. 

 , Reason why is I'm  thinking about this kit,It appears to be close to caldercraft/jolika victory but it's way out of my range price wish, I would like to know more about this kit from people that have built it thank you

There's two Mantua Vic builds in the log area.   Not sure if it's the same one or not. One builder finished his, but has been online here since the middle of 2013.  The other build, I'm not sure about....

Hi Ronald,if you are referring to the Panart Victory at 1/78,I haven't built it myself but I have read about it elsewhere.It is identical to the Sergal model of the same scale,however the Panart model has the copper tiles and the binnacle,otherwise the two kits are an identical product.I am not aware of your level of experience,but I have read from reliable sources this is probably the hardest Victory kit to build on the market today.Just a friendly warning,if you are fairly new to the hobby,I would approach with caution.


Kind Regards Nigel
