Lockheed PV-1 Ventura Naval Patrol Plane

Product Description

A Ventura pounds its target in this relatively rare depiction of action by Koike.  The aircraft's sharp, smart lines are contrasted well by the fuzzy motion of the spray it has kicked up from the sea.  Used in many roles by many countries, the PV-1 and its close successors were versatile workhorses that could bomb land and sea targets, lead bomber formations with their radar and more.  Some versions mounted .50 cal. MGs in the nose and even HVAR rockets under the wings.
