MANTUA

Who is the manufacturer MANTUA and what are its specificities?

MANTUA is known for its models representing the most iconic and popular boats in history.

Presentation of MANTUA manufacturing model boats

Who is the manufacturer MANTUA?

The Mantua brand is known worldwide for designing models of wooden boats. It all began in 1926 when the artisan sailboat John Tyler Mantua, originally from New Jersey, discovered a talent for the manufacture of wooden model kit . Before being a specialist in naval modeling, Mantua began with the production of metal trains on the HO scale. Very quickly, he became one of the market leaders. His reputation was such that he was even hired by the U.S. Army during World War II to build ship models. Some of his creations earned him an award for excellence from the U.S. land and navy. It was not until the beginning of 2000 that the Mantua company really devoted itself to the exclusive production of meticulously detailed models of boats.

What are MANTUA's specialties?

Mantua naval modeling is renowned in the world of building historic boats and ships. Among his great specialties are the famous models of sailboats, rc Mantua boats, electric rc boats, but also warships. Mantua France is also a reference in terms of historical modeling that allows to trace the evolution of the architectures of sailboats and boats throughout history. The Mantua models are inspired by real boats that were used during the Second World War, and many of the reproductions are exhibited in museums of Art and History.

What are the most popular MANTUA ranges?

Parmi the most popular Mantua models is the titanic electric rc boat. Mantua has indeed decided to reproduce this very famous giant of the seas with a tragic fate. The Mantua Titanic model is 1:200 scale and is offered with several kits to alternate between static and navigational versions. The kits are available in full or partially completed version. The first includes the boat's keel, torques, propellers, double plating and propeller shafts. You can complete the equipment as construction progresses by purchasing the elements individually. The dimensions of this magnificent wooden model are 135 cm long and 14 cm wide. It is a radio controlled model.

Amerigo Vespucci curious that there is a Dutch text on the different pages, but easy! many brass parts, but moderately explained in detail. What is stated as WALNUT, is NOT present as such, so that is blown biting. Whether everything is complete , will have to be seen during construction. The order via the site was rather difficult because it was not clearly indicated how you could specify the payment. By the end of the day, just click on save!! it eventually worked. *

Victory Hello everyone, having built fifteen models in my life, after a long break I got back to it. I note that after so many years the kits are still identical except for a few details. The structure of the boat is basic, if you want to get closer to the truth you have to improve. I think that at this price (€549) manufacturers could make a little extra effort. For the rest, the fittings are of good quality and the plans are precise and 1001 models is a nice and serious store. Therefore I remain on a good impression. See you soon ! *
