A new model on the bench. This is a Zvezda model. The Petlyakov PE-2 on 1/48.

 

From what I read in the reviews (Brett Green) it is a very complete model, with good fittings and quite detailed. A model with a little more than 400 pieces.

The model.

I have often thought about getting this kit but couldn't find an interesting colour scheme for it. Still, I am interested to see how this builds up.

A fit test and for now everything seems perfect.

As I still do not have the PE and the mask (Eduard) I decided to start with the engine. Some very small pieces require some care. Always doing a fitting test as I'm gluing parts.

And that's enough for now.

And after cutting, cleaning and gluing many pieces, it's time to use the airbrush.

I started with the engine.

It's getting a longer setup because I have not yet received Eduard PE.

 

Some more finished pieces.
