  1. After the 1/48th kit (link), strong rumours say Zvezda is preparing a new tool 1/72nd Petlyakov Pe-2 kit - ref. 7283 Source: https://tieba.baidu.com/f?kw=模型类新闻&ie=utf-8 V.P.
  2. Alas, wrong scale
  3. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's the new 1/72 Zvezda Pe-2 in markings of 34th Guards Bomber Regiment, Leningrad, December 1944. I built from the box with addition of Mini Art defense guns. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. The new Zvezda kit is excellent in detail and fit, comparable to Tamiya offerings. Alternative parts enable you to build aircraft of different production batches. 5 attractive color options are included, 4 Russian, 1 Polish post-war. The kit decals perform exceptionally well.
  4. Hi gents A tricky kit with an unusual camo. Antenna wire not yet installed. Hope you'll like her. Cheers Pierre
  5. Here is my Airfix 1:72 Petlyakov Pe-2FT series 349 which I built back in 2007. Unit, location and time details are unknown. Other than detailing the cockpit area, it was built mostly OOB. I had to put it in flight because dealing with the very shallow undercarriage bays would have been alot of work, mainly in getting new longer u/c legs. I even used the original Airfix stand ! The kit was brush-painted with enamel Colourcoats paints (owned back then by White Ensign), with the varnish being airbrushed on. The decals were those of the kit and despite their age still worked well!
  6. Where has the joy of kits gone? Because of a little bout of mojoitis I decided to try and go back to basics. Less pre-assembly painting, scratch-building and stressing about unnecessaries, and more just sticking bits of plastic together. It didn't quite work out exactly as planed, mainly because this kit is nothing like the Airfix of my youth. The kit has a couple of relatively minor fit problems, but on the whole it's remarkable, although without doubt the most complex and challenging kit I have ever built. I got a little bogged down after a couple of months, but after a
  7. Petlyakov Pe-2 1:48 Eduard The Pe-2 has been described as comparable to the British Mosquito. Developed as a bomber the aircraft filled the roles of heavy fighter, ground attack, reconnaissance and night fighting. It was particularly well known for its ground attack role. The aircraft was actually designed in a prison! In 1937 Vladimir Petlyakov had been imprisoned on allegations of delaying the design work on the Tupolev ANT-42. While in prison Petlyakov was placed in charge of a team to develop an escort fighter for the ANT-42. Following lessons learnt from the Germans t
  8. Pe-2 Dive bomber in 1:48 scale. 34th Guards Red Banner Regiment, 276 Bomb Group, 1945 Built from Zvezda new tool kit. painted by Tamiya and vallejo paints. sealed by mat varinish. more pics
  9. Hello All, I rashly volunteered to do an Airfix PE-2 earlier on, and I realise that I have a busy work schedule for the next month, a road trip and 22 days to get this done! Last night I picked up the box when I was finishing up doing some work at home, and the next thing I knew, I was experimenting with scribing panel lines on an underside wing half by following the rather large raised details. Here is the result after trimming off the raised detail and the the huge dive brake fairings: I guess that means I've started! This will have to be pretty much OOB apart from
  10. Here's a few snaps of my Zvezda Pe-2 1/48 that I posted a few entries in the WIP forum. The antenna post extending from the canopy broke I believe when I put too much tension in the EZ line during bonding and a few days later a temperature drop (AC on in my house) caused the EZ line to shrink - has anyone else ever encountered this? Used some of the Eduard PE AM, paints were all Tamiya acrylics, Ammo panel line wash, kit decals (a #$%&!). The soviet blue underside way too green - sorry! In general a fun build - I especially like the exposed engine on one side. Enjoy, John
  11. Here's some WIP shots of my Pe-2 I started a few days ago. This is my first Zvezda kit and in general I'm very impressed, The molding quality is incredible - panel lines and surface detail so fine, I worry about going too thick on the paint and loosing it all. Kit engineering is so-so - very fiddly in some areas - reminds me of a Great Wall kit I built a while back (P-61). I would definitely recommend dry-fitting frequently while building. I ordered the Eduards internal PE set and have used the seat belts, instrument panels and inner panels for the landing gear wells and bomb bay. Unfortun
  12. Mt first post on Britmodeller, but I'm quite proud of this one and it's a bit of a step up for me! A nice fitting kit, with raised panel lines and not exactly bursting with detail, so it's been rescribed, and then I've had a first try with a rivetting tool (the Rivet-R mini, highly recommended!). Thanks for looking, and hope you like!
  13. Hello, this is my first post here, I hope you like it, it's my last work, the Pe-2 Petliakov MPM 1/48 typical short run, OOB plus some improvements to scracht, with two Fab 250 courtesy of a friend , from Accurate Sturmovik kit. I've depicted in flight, to show the beauty of this plane, as I did not found a way to represent the propeller in flight in a real way, I miss, this is cause for great conversation with friends. . . . . And so is my showcase Greetings to all Juan A. Muñoz
  14. I'm sorry this post was to go Ready for inspection, I've changed. .
  15. Hi everybody. This is UM Models 1/72 Petlyakov Pe-2. I upgraded with Kora Resin sets (Interior/Exterior/Engines/Undercarriage), Zlinek Photo Etch set, MiniWorld metal guns and Eduard masks. Painted with Harder & Steínbeck Evolution airbrush using Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Thanks to Andreas Bdinka (IPMS Austria) for his help in obtaining the Kora sets. Thanks to fellow Britmodeller users Fuad and Learstang for valuable advice regarding VVS colours (hope I got them right this time). This is the kit box. Striking artwork, but it's a pity that this colorful livery is not included in the
  16. This is the latest project on my workbench: the 1/72 Petlyakov Pe-2 from UM Models. It is a Series 205 aircraft with the rear turret. (Note that this striking option from the kit's box is NOT included on the decal sheet) I have amassed a number of Aftermarket products for this build. - four different packages by Kora, which cover Interior/Wheel Wells/Engine/Armament, collected by IPMS colleague Andreas Bdinka in Czech Republic. (Thanks, by the way!) - a small phot etch fret picked from the 'second hand' box of my local Hobby Shop (designed for Zlinek Kit) - metal guns from Mini World
