Quickboost continues its prolific release schedule with a number of recent releases in 1/72 scale.

All the sets are perfectly cast in grey resin, with minimal cleanup required. Consistent with Quickboost's philosophy to date, each set has been designed with a minimum of parts, and should be straightforward to assemble:

1/72 scale

QB 72 118 - Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib Late Stabilisers

 

 

These are the largeer late style (Tempest) stabilisers retrofitted to many Typhoons. The resin parts should be a simple replacement for the kit stabs.



QB 72 119 - F4U-2 Birdcage Corsair Radome

 



QB 72 120 - F-117A Ejection Seat with Safety Belts

 

 

This is a gorgeously detailed ejection seat  for 1/72 scale F-117 kits. Harness straps are cast in place.

The overhead ejection handle is cast onto the block, and should be easy to slice off and install.



QB 72 121 - Mosquito Undercarriage Covers

These are superbly detailed, simple, drop fit replacements for Tamiya's kit parts minus the ejector pin marks (pictured at the top of the page.



QB 72 122 - Hurricane Mk.IIC Cannon Barrels Type B

 

 

Beautifully detailed replacement cannon barrels with hollowed out ends for Hasegawa's Hurricane II kits.



QB 72 123 - Hurricane Mk.II Fishtail Exhaust Pipes

 

 

Replacement exhaust stacks for Hasegawa's Hurricane Mk.II kits with hollowed out ends.



QB 72 124 - Wellington Mk.Ic Gun Barrels (Oval Perf.)

 

 

Beautifully detailed replacement machine gun barrels with oval cooling slots, flared muzzle and hollowed out ends for the turrets in Trumpeter's Wellington Mk.I. The delicate work on these tiny barrels is truly amazing.
