Wow! Peter is really talented! I espcially like the subtle weathering on his Yak and the KV II!

Great work! I really like the KVII, but I am partial to Russian Armor.

Hi All,

I would like to thank you all for the kind comments that have been made about the samples of my work that "Gunny" posted with my profile particularly as most of it is not related to ship modelling, I can`t see a Soviet KV or a Belgian Gladiator floating for long. I will assure you that as time goes on you will see more ship/submarine related subjects being modelled by myself.

This friendly and helpful attitude is just what I made reference to in the text contained within my profile, as a new boy to this area of modelling (Ship Building) I feel honored to be asked to contribute to the MSW web site, and thank you all for being asked to do so and for my work being so well received, this is what makes YOU a great bunch.

I hope to shortly be able to post pictures of the following submarine related subjects,
" November Class" Soviet Submarine, Japanese Pearl Harbour Midget Submarine and finally a modern German 212 Class A, I only hope you enjoy these as well.

Thanks again

PeteV

Dear friend, I catch this a bit late it seems, but then I really enjoyed reading your very in depth profile, About your builds, i am very partial about your always impeccable submarines but that's because I feel quite salty these days
I wish you all the best for your future builds and will watch this space for even more from your very talented hands,
keep well

That was a great profile, we got to meet a talented (and amusing) modeller. The modelling questions were good. I especially liked Pete's responses about competitions "medal hunting" and secrets "happy to share any info I have..." Really Pete is so much a core part of that community he was talking about, the one we all are apart of here at MSW.

oh, almost forgot - AWESOME models, love them all (biplane, tank, subs).

Good on ya Pete! (and well done Gunny).

Thanks Wink, I'm having a great time myself as well, meeting the "modeler's behind the callsigns"....would you be interested in a Q&A session, my friend?

Hello to everyone

Gunny, I think that a profile on that VERY talented member of MSW who goes by the name of Wink would be an excellent addition to the series. I have been very fortunate to get to know Wink over the last year or so and not only is he an excellent modeler but also has a well developed sense of humour, so come on Gunny don`t ask him just send him the paper work.
