Petlyakov Pe-2 - Eduard Ltd Edition 1/48

Recommended Posts

Eduard's rebox of the Zvezda kit with some PE

 

P1000447.JPG

 

Slightly different from normal, work starts with the Wings 

 

P1000448.JPG

 

then finish off the wheel wells once boxed in with some mud / grease

The starts in the fuselage sides

So far it's a nice kit, but somewhat overly complex - it is however zvezda plastic so very soft but has almost complete interior.

A bit more done today, the starboard side of the fuselage. The clear parts are a bit of a nightmare to fit but done now

Then closed up the fuselage

Did you use plastic glue or something else for the undernose clear part?

 after a couple of dry fittings some Tamiya extra thin on the sides of the fuselage to soften it, then it slotted in flush. Then ran some gator glue around to complete the process.

I'm not entirely convinced by the colours - they seem a little light, but we'll see

Brilliant-looking Peshka you have there! Now you need the Xuntong Tu-2 to keep her company.

Hi Peter. I have this kit too and I love the way you are building it. Which color you used on the interior?

 It's the Gunze Colours called out by Eduard but can't remember the numbers - the only difference is that I used the gloss version of the grey because I had that handy, and then just matted it down afterwards.

Bit more done today - first added the exhaust covers and staining

 

P1000476.JPG

 

Then unmasked and polished the canopies, and built and fitted the resin props (which aren't great being honest )

Hi Peter,

Great work on the "Peshka", I have the same kit and I'm following your work with interest.

I think that green colour is a bit much too light and "greenish", I would choose something more "Olive Drab" in tone.
