B-34 LEXINGTON [ Ventura Mk.IIa ] 1:72 Kit
A neat little kit & well worth having. This is the old Minicraft PV-1 Ventura kit which has been around since 1987 in various re-issues & still going strong. This is a cool new re-boxing of the model as an early war B-34 Lexington, a name given to it by the USAAF. The B-34 is effectively a Ventura II, heavily used by the RAF and RCAF during the war & a necessary component to any serious collection of 1/72 scale Canadian aircraft. The Ventura has not been kitted by too many manufacturers in 1/72 scale - the only competition that Minicraft really has are various re-issues of the old FROG model from the 1960's. A nice, simple all plastic kit that can be built right out of the box, or can become the foundation for a super-detailing project in the hands of a serious modelist !
