You put a lot of skill and care for detail in this Pete and the result is stunning!
What more can I say. 5!

The F1M Pete is one of the most beautiful bi-planes in the world, and Pat does it justice with this effort. Because of the open cockpit design, all the effort that goes into the interior is visible for a change.
This is *easily* a 4.9 (I never give 5.0, so that should tell you what I really think!).
What's the story behind the fish? Was this model to be part of a diorama?

I basolutely love what Pat has done with his Pete. That's exactly how a Japanese seaplane should look. 5.0

Beautiful work. 5,0.

Very very well done, particularly the detail and the rigging. Just a whiff more wash and wear. Extra points for the funny idea with the fish. 4.9

A nice Pete. Well made and finished, gets a 4.4 from me.

Really nice, clean build! How was the Hasesgawa PE to work with? The fish are a nice touch. 5.0

Beautiful finished Pete ! I like the difference in color of the float and the plane itself. Funny little detail with the fish :)
I agree with Michael Thurow, to put a little more wash and wear on this plane.
My vote: 4.9

4.9 only because the tail code coloring is sort of wonky.
