Other than the armament, does anyone know how many other differences there were between it and the L10 Electra? Well yes there were many. One thing I do know is that whenever Lockheed put a V in the name of an aircraft, it involved Vega Aircraft Company, which became a separate company a time to two. The PV1 was one of lockheed's numerous innovative airplanes that performed a wide range of tasks in WWII.

Lockheed was on the forefront of so many aeronautical innovations, usually the only people who grasp its scope learned by being Lockheed employees. The Hudson was not as capable as the Ventura, but lockheed bows its head in recognition of the Hudson nonetheless. When WWII brought the USA into the fight, the US Government called in its favors with the UK to put the Venturas back under US command as much as possible. The Ventura was one of many anti-submarine and electronic surveillance aircraft that Lockheed continued to build. It had more 'tech' onboard than anything else the allies had and was used as a lead aircraft for B-17's and Lancasters flying out of the UK. Lockheed had a fully operational jet fighter in 1943 called the P-80. There was always so much shrouded in secrecy and the "need to know" prevented knowledge of their capabilities from ever getting recognized. Ceiling and Speed capabilities exceeded other planes so much, that they never were recognized.

And so, the misinformation campaigns we learned from the British became part and parcel of the UFO cover-up, even though Lockheed's engineers and customers did almost all of it seamlessly with the Air Force's Project Blue Book, it really just turned out that way. There never was a government conspiracy to keep UFO information from the public. Defense contractors were more concerned with other companies learning their tech than anything else. National Defense was indeed central to the whole thing. But not for the reasons commonly cited.

Anyway, getting back to Vega, there is still misinformation about that. Amelia Earhart did fly in a Vega. She could fly anything. But her ill-fated voyage was in a Lockheed L10 Electra. After her flight was lost due to ground control errors, not her skill nor the very safe Lockheed airplane.

Nonetheless, Lockheed engineers went to work on successors to the Electra to give a pilot all of the tech she or he would ever need not to get lost ever again. Not many more L10's were built, except for deliveries under contract. And their "Hudson" based design for the PV! put one of the most sophisticated surveillance aircraft into the hands of our allies, Canada and the RAF. Until Uncle Sam wanted them back.

Roland K Thanks for the Feedback Guys! For this model I actually used Akan, but the finish is just as nice as Gunze. However Akan is a bit more fragile than Gunze is so a good clear coat is always a good thing to have

Urban Gardini I've looked around but can't seem to locate these decals. Too bad as there's finaly some great decals for this kit and these decals would make it worthwhile to get the Revell kit and build it. It seems like a great kit but I don't like the octopusy in the kit.

31. August 2013 at 12:38:32
Bruce Leyland-Jones In spite of the tools surviving behind the old Iron Curtain, the good work that FROG originally did still holds true. It's also an accurately shaped kit, with the right number of doors in the right place.
31. August 2013 at 18:26:36
Lionel Marco I had a look and you're right, the result is quite good...

31. August 2013 at 20:34:06
Bruce Leyland-Jones At least it doesn't look like the Donetsk Toys boxart!
31. August 2013 at 22:38:35
John Bollig Now that is a frog kit I wanted but could never find
01. September 2013 at 05:09:53
Bruce Leyland-Jones UPDATE - I've recovered many of my FROG kits from old ex-Soviet boxings. These pop up from time to time on a certain on-line auction site and are usually available for very low prices. I expect, I expect the boxart to be a factor.
Official sources cite Novo, Red Star and DFI as recipients of Ventura kits. Having communicated with the donor of my kit, it appears my Ventura was NOT a Krugozor and WAS a DFI kit. Doh.
01. September 2013 at 22:22:05
John Bollig Bruce, I want the FROG Ventura for reasons that include the rapid decline in the quality of the moulds. I have brought frog spawn kits and found them to be disappointing.
08. September 2013 at 02:35:12
Bruce Leyland-Jones Understood. Be aware that the Ventura was never issued in a FROG. Many boxes were made, but FROG folded before they got to be used.In the case of the Ventura, FROGspawn is your only option.
That said, if you shop around, there are genuine bargains to be had.
08. September 2013 at 09:46:13
John Bollig [img1]

here is a FROG Ventura, Bruce
09. September 2013 at 02:15:09
Bruce Leyland-Jones From the Lines & Helstrom book;
"Lockheed PV-1 Ventura GRV
Never released. It is believed that te first test mouldings were obtained in
March 1977. Some 40,000 boxes were printed in 1974 or 1975, (they had the Skybase text, of the H1 box type), butalmost all of these were eventually thrown away. Of the test mouldings that later got out on the collectors market, only about 100 were complete with the boxes. Thousands of decal sheets were printed as well, but most of these were saved. The kit was at one stage to have a Spin-a-Prop issue.

There is some suggestion that some boxes made their way eastwrards, to wrap themselves those nice east european products.

As an aside, ARK have re-released this kit and it looks quite okay,

I must be dense some times. I was looking through the kit a bit more carefully and found some added parts and features that will lend them selves to be a second kit. Maybe from the way things look it could be an FAA or coastal command plane with a BP turret.
If so then Revell please hurry so I can add it to my collection.

Roger Mukka Exiting aircraft, and until now for me unknown. Fun detail with octopus painted above. What colors do you using? Is it RAF Sky under?
24. September 2012 at 21:36:11
Bill Gilman This is an excellent kit. Revell in the US developed this one, and it was their first new aircraft kit in many years. I'm glad to see that Revell of Germany is now selling it as well.

I've seen two of them built up so far, one with the octopus. I was told that the octopus decal was quite difficult to apply. But it looks like Lionel is going for a different set of markings. RAF or NZ perhaps?
24. September 2012 at 22:01:12
Roland Sachsenhofer Beautiful Lionel!
I have heard of Revells re-release; quite interesting, I will have to get one soon. You are doing great work, I looking forward to more of that.
Roland
24. September 2012 at 22:42:14
Lionel Marco Thanks guys!

As Bill has guessed, I'll go for a New Zealand plane in the US light grey / blue grey camo scheme. I used White Ensign Model paints.
The octopus scheme is attractive... But the paint mix necessary for the ring around the turret is a little complicated. And having this mix perfectly matching the decals will depend either on pure luck or an amount of mixing I can't achieve.
So let's go for a RNZAF plane...

See you

Lionel
