Nope, that's Pete Richardson himself!

Rumours are that he's scaling down his involvement, and selling off some excess stock.

Yes Tim, I've been in contact with that EBayer, and made a purchase. Pete indicated that he needed to move some inventory he had built-up.

Some of the nicest looking smaller scale pilots in town.

I thought it was the other way around. Pete had copied some other pilot figures and was passing them off as Pete's Pilots..

He's rescinded those, and what is being left, is the genuine article.

So yes, it is the same bloke, but no, it IS pete of petes pilots, and no, it wasn't petes pilots being copied, it was peter copying someone elses.
