Lockheed PV-1 Ventura

1/48 Revell PV-1 Ventura, Bureau Number 34623, of VPB-145 at NAS Deland, July 29th, 1943

This true story is based on actual events that happened here at the Deland airport exactly 80 years ago today... on July 29th, 1943. I wanted to tell their story by writing this article, and building this PV-1 Ventura model, as a tribute [...]

Aeronautique Navale...1/48 Lockheed PV-1 Ventura, French Navy

And my dad´s next model is finished. Wanted to avoid one of the usual blue schemes so we chose a French one in an atlantic scheme. Revell USA kit with Berna decals. Painted with Tamiya XF-2 White and Gunze H317 FS36231. Build thread [...]

Revell 1/48 pv-1 ventura

Quick review here. My father trained bomber pilots during WWII in Beaufort, S.C. I asked him why the noses on his PV-1s looked different. He explained the radar units were in short supply and couldn't be wasted on training aircraft. So [...]

PV-1 Ventura

I took a break from stringing biplanes to build this wonderful kit, Revell's PV-1 Ventura. The kit was marked "Korea 2011" and went together like a dream. All the seams had a nice tight fit, so very little bodywork was needed. [...]

Revell 1/48 Ventura Mk II

1/48 Revell Ventura Mk. II

Here’s a few not so great photos of Revell’s 1/48th scale Ventura Mk. II which I completed on Christmas Eve 2017, my final build of the year. It’s a great kit and fun to construct, but it does take up a lot of shelf space and looks [...]

Year in Review – 2015

I always think I'm getting more done than I really am, and was surprised when I looked back at the 2015 completions - until I remember the work it took to finish the Stinger and the MiG-31! I remember when I was a kid I'd build a model on [...]

1/72 PV-1 Ventura Gunship

Started with an Academy kit (pretty nice, except the wing root joint). I opened up the throughway from the cockpit to the cabin, and then felt I better add the navigator and table in case you could see it. Shouldn't have wasted the effort [...]

My little “Ad-lantic AdVentur-uh”

Hi all, here is my just completed Revell 1/48 PV-1 Ventura done in an "Atlantic" color scheme. I searched the web a lot for images of Venturas in this scheme, and am including the best image I found, a very handsome PV-1 in [...]
