Yes, Gus, thanks for posting this.

Any way you can get Peter to chime in here and denote which of these publications are still available from him? I understand some are out of print now...or at least that's what I've heard. Maybe Peter can clarify which ARE still available and the best way to obtain them. I'd be interested in that V2 painting guide in particular.

Thanks again!

Earl

I knew he released a lot of information but I had no idea it was so vast. Thanks for posting the list.

Peter is selective in his publishing methods but I hope he picks a print on demand service for his next releases. That way they never have to go out of print.

I bought a copy of the V2 modeler's painting guide from him at NARAM in Muncie last year (he even signed it for me!) The guide is indispensable.

Ahh, thanks for the info! A purchase that relatively recent would probably indicate it is still in print, hopefully!

I did the same at NSL in Geneseo in 2017. Nice reunion. I had met Peter about 20 years earlier, and have a signed copy of The Art of Scale Model Rocketry. I should have taken my Rockets of the World to have him sign, but I didnít know he would be there.

Gus (Steve) -

Well, that is a very nice, tidy parsing of the available works! Thanks much and good job!

Looks like I have a choice of vendors for the V2 painting guide!


Thanks again,

Earl
