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

I have recently completed this 1/48 Revell Ventura Mk II. The kit went together fairly well and the only problem areas I found were the weak rear wheel strut (reinforced mine), the very minute contact areas for the bomb bay doors if open [...]

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 [...]

Revell 1/48 Lockheed PV-1 Ventura

I guess I can't just work on one model at a time. This is Revell's Lockheed Ventura. The kit is nicely detailed externally with a nice representation of the front office. The only low point is the area aft of the cowl flaps. I simply [...]
