    First Name: George
    Category: Intermediate
    Manufacturer: Revell
    Model: 1/48 Lockheed Ventura Pv-1
    Add-ons: Maybe some wire and plastic, decals

    Although there are decals for an RCAF aircraft stationed in Prince Rupert, B.C., I'm going to model this one that was stationed in Pat Bay, B.C. on Vancouver Island

    The parts look really nice and all the reviews I've read have been promising. I'm really hoping to keep the putty away from this build. Not much will get done this month, going to camp today and when I get off, it's a 2100km round trip to move my daughter back to Mackenzie.

    Cool pic George. Don't hear too much about them, but they saw a lot of action on the northern Pacific

    "Plus Canadian Decals"!
    So, they're extra polite?

    Yes, and a second set in French.

    Sorry. Excuse me. Hope I didn't offend.

    Often been tempted with this one George especially for an Aussie build, but I figure I've enough lumbering giants in my collection.

    Very cool, this is one of the aircraft that never got the credit it deserved.

    Back from camp and off to P.G. today; a) to pick up for the TSS scheme which I have read on-line, was applied to the aircraft, b) buy a new car. The company have arranged with the Ford dealer to give us a 15% discount on new cars. Good to see you back again Boats. Your build inspired me to buy the kit. Jan, I haven't seen this posted anywhere in your 13's....thread and it may throw a kink into your "must build everything numbered 13 quest" but as you have noticed, this aircraft will have the code letter "M", the 13th letter. Probably no build this week as I fly to Victoria on Friday and move the daughter and her boyfriend to Mackenzie. The wife is ecstatic, she's about to be a first time grandma, I'm confused, about to be a grandpa. Suddenly old.

    Good luck with the shopping and moving George and being a Grandad is like getting a second life, the best part being that when you have run out of the second wind with the grand children, you can return them to mum and dad.
