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. I built the kit[...]

On This Day…June 4th.

There’s not much left one can say about Midway. My approach to this singular conflict is try and set up this first day of battle proper, and let the images tell the rest of the tale. Early on June 4th, Vice Admiral Nagumo launched his attac[...]

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 (closed[...]

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 - you[...]

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 South Carolina in 19[...]

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 carved a [...]
