I did a small photo shoot with Pete's latest models in the week .... he said he was happy for them to be posted here.

I'm happy to relay any questions to Pete.

The model is about 30" span with twin EDF power.

Tamiya paints used throughout.

I think I saw the fuselage for this last year.  He was showing Richard Granger and Paul Briggs.  The balsa was as thin as eggshell, how he does it I will never know.  He let me feel the weight of it - such that there was!

It is the pinnacle of craftsmanship......absolutely superb

Thanks for posting Russ, and I agree with Pete, excellent pictures.

Yes. I've never seen anything better. I am pretty short-sighted and can focus at three inches, but even then, the quality and fineness of Pete's work is flawless.

I saw the 262 at the Nuneaton MAS Swap Meet a few weeks ago......I've known Pete for some time, and have seen previous models of his, but this just kind of takes your breath away. He ran it up, and it even sounds like a jet! The detail is frankly astonishing, even in the (removable) undercarriage legs which themselves are a work of art. I wonder, did he go down to The Crossroads or something like that?

Excellent model. Would like to know a lot more of the details like components of powertrain and of course weight.
Assume it is an outdoor FF?
Has it put in any flights yet?
Any talk of a write- up?
Thanks

Hi Marty,

It's not flown yet .... that's why Pete wanted some photos done first ... just in case!

The weight is '200 odd grams' as I say ... will get a proper figure from Pete (though he does intend to join the forum as soon as he gets to grips with computers a little more)

It's outdoor micro RC ... he has been using the E-flite gear .... I should really have written more down, sorry!

Such talent should not be allowed in one human being. It's like thinking you can play guitar a bit, then hearing Malmsteen or Satriani.

A demoralised Dan.

Do you know what he has built it with? Obviously not stick and tissue....it is covered with sheet balsa? Fiberglass? Foam...with a covering?

Pete would probably like to be equated to Jeff Beck too?! ... but yes, a humbling amount of talent!
Don't be too put off ... he always speaks highly of you Dan ... except perhaps your tent management  Wink

Tom,
It is stick and tissue ... except for the sheeted monocoque fuselage.
I will post another shot that shows the structure of the tail in the light

Tee hee Russ! I can honestly say it wasn't me who burnt the tent down. Funny in hindsight, though!

Cheers,

I hope Pete makes a return to F/F, if only to show us mere mortals what's possible. Russ; you are a way better builder than I will ever be! I don't have the attention span. Or the skill... That doesn't bother me. I do what I do 'cos I love doing it, but just looking at the wheels you did makes me realise I'm never going to take it to that level. I'm just happy that there are still people who CAN do stuff like that and give me something to aim for.

Cheers,

Dan

Hahaha awesome ... it is better than the finish of the full size 262s that came off the factory floor. Might have to deuce points for that Grin

I am with you on that BG.  Cheesy Wink. But then I use "weathering" to cover up the blemishes and defects; so no defects = no weathering!

Such mastery of the art is I think good to see because it is inspirational. I for example am a long way from that standard and am unlikely to ever reach it.  But it does provoke me to have a jolly good try and therby do a little better each time.

You may be surprised to hear that all the spray paint has been applied using an airbrush from 'Toolstation' costing £15.68! Pete rates it higher than some of the more expensive brushes he has used.
The song "It ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it" springs to mind!

In this shot you can see the light shining through the tail fin, showing the built up structure.

Not only has he done all this with a £15 airbrush but every panel line and rivet has been applied by masking and spraying. Pete reckons that took about a week to do - so quick?? Having been privileged actually to hold this model I can vouch for the incredible artistry and modelling skill that it represents - I've since decided to take up alligator wrestling instead of aeromodelling as it would probably suit my hamfistedness better....

I've just spoken to Pete in the past hour: funny, he didn't sound superhuman, but looking at the 262, he must be: utterly stunning. He will be bringing it to Bushfield on Sunday. Worth the trip just to see it!
