     Purchased for a bargain price off of EBay in 2005. The previous owner had actually attempted to start building this model starting with the engine nacelles. Luckily a careful check seems to show that all the parts are included. This includes a set of resin parts and photoetch pieces. There are almost no aftermarket accessories apart from:

 

  • Owl Etched Aerials

  • Eagle Strike Decals

  • Engines & Things ENG48040 Klimov M-103

Eduard Pe-2 seat belts set 49091 "superfabric" and 49092 "fabric" - added from Hannants in May 2016. These two sets, although similar seem to use two different technologies - one with fabric and etch whilst the other looks like just printed fabric. I didn't open the packets... so one day we'll find out.

Decals

Eagle Strike decals set 48038 "Petlyakov Pe-2's Pt. I" Eagle Strike decals set 48038 "Petlyakov Pe-2's Pt. I" Eagle Strike decals set 48038 "Petlyakov Pe-2's Pt. I" OWL Decals 48002 Red Stars on Night Sky
The Eagle Strike decals set 48038 "Petlyakov Pe-2's Pt. I". Oddly enough it suggests an "Airfix - Italeri Pe-2". This may have existed in 1/72nd but not 1/48th. This suggest that Eagle Strike scaled this up from a 1/72nd scale version. The set includes a Finnish example. There are also five Russian machines shown. Two have very interesting Winter camouflage. OWL Decals 48002 Red Stars on Night Sky added May 2016 from Hannants.
