Readers’ Gallery: Paul Wilsford’s 1/48 Revell PV-1 Ventura


Agape Models forum member Paul Wilsford (FMTango) posted these photos of his finished Ventura. Great work on a really cool kit, Paul!

Well here she is, the last of my shelf queens that I know of anyway. I know I have just a bunch of little things to do but I figure thats to be taken care of later.

    Congratulations on the great build. I have been wishing for a mainstream PV-1 Ventura in 1/48 scale for years. Previously the only Ventura kit was that multi-media (Manufacture’s name?) and I shy away from resin. The Ventura didn’t share the historic glory that some of the other Navy/Marine planes, but served an important niche in the scout-attack roll. I hope to get one of these kits in the future and your review will be helpful. Thanks for putting this review out there.
    God Bless

  2. By complete accident I saw that Revelle recently released the PV-1.

    I am age 63 years of age and have not modeled in years. However, this madel has particular personal significance for me. My father was a Navy pilot in WW II. He was flying PV-1 anit-sub in September 1942 in the Atlantic. In late 1943 he was transfered to the Pacific. His last assignment was with VPB-133, assigned to Iwo Jima in March 1945.

    He passed away several years ago. It will be great to model his personal PV-1 and then give it to his grandson. This is for you dad, Noah T. Walker, Lt. (jg) VPB-133.
