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 the[...]
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. I built the kit[...]
