A quick look at the specifications of the Pe2 shows a level of performance close to that of the legendary Mosquito! Is this heresy? Are there any survivors? Anyone want to fly one?

Been wanting the Pe-2/3 as flyable since day one of IL-2! Someone has been modeling them but I dont know their status. There are several non airworthy examples in museums in Russia and other Eastern European countries. A search on Google will bring them up.

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.

Yeah, me too!

The Pe-2 is my favourite of all the Soviet twin-engine types and I'd love it (almost as much as I love the Mossie)!

Its been brought up several times, I thought the main problem was no data on the cockpit layout?

No, that's not true.
This was said about Pe-8 only.
AFAIK, there's no problem with Pe-2(3) documentation availability.

Indeed. Oleg has passed a lot of data on this a/c to a Russian modeller. We'll have to wait and see if he comes up with something.

Heck yea I want one, especially the fighter Pe-3bis. One of my favorite planes ever (up there with Yak-3, and Il-2 series 1).

Long time fan of that one - the modelling job has been passed around a lot since day 1 of IL2 - nobody seems capable of putting much effort into getting this one done..........
