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 72 079 - Type 98 Japanese WWII Gunsights

Six Japanese WWII fighter gunsights each comprising resin, photo-etch (ring and bead) and acetate (reflector).

 

 


QB 72 125 - Messerschmitt Bf 109 G Tropical Filter for Fine Molds

 

 

Single drop-fit replacement for the supercharger intake in FIne Molds' 1/72 scale Bf 109 G kits.


QB 72 127 - Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Control Column
QB 72 128 - Mig-29 Fulcrum Control Column


QB 72 129 - Hawker Hunter Recon Nose for Revell

 

 

A single clear resin part for installation in the nose of Revell's excellent 1/72 scale Hunter kit.


QB 72-131 - Ju 88 G Corrected Tail for Zvezda

Pictured at the top of the page, this single resin part will correct the undersized and misshapen tail of Zvezda's otherwise respectable Ju 88 G kits.


QB 72 132 - Hawker Hurricane Mk.II Propeller with tool

A replacement for the spinner and propeller assembly on Revell's 1/72 scale Hurricane Mk.II kits.
