Aviaeology has produced one of their superlative decal sheets to suit the Revell Ventura.

Jessica,
Thanks for your review of the PV-1 decal sheet. The Revell PV-1 has been on my must build list for some time but I just never seem to get around to it. But with this new decal sheet, I'm really getting the urge to actually do this build.

Has Aviaeology fixed their issue with the thickness of their decals? I had used one of their previous releases on my Mosquito and they were extremely thick and would not sit down properly on the model. Also there was a distinct no realistic pattern on the decal, I assume from their printing process.

Yes, they've changed from their previous "digital silk" to a more traditional printing method. The sample decals look to be very thin indeed and there's definitely no pattern on these.
