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:
QB 72 133 -
F7F Tigercat Cowlings and Engines
Pictured at top of the page, these four resin parts will add a huge amount of detail to the business end of your Italeri F7F Tigercat. Each engine is presented as a single part, featuring very crisp and fine detail on the cylinders and the crank case. You'll have to add your own push rods and ignition wire though. The single-piece cowlings are beautifully cast too.
QB 72 134 - Nieuport 17 Cowling
QB 72 135 - Nieuport 17 Tail Plane
These two simple replacement parts will require very little preparation. They are designed for the Eduad kit.
QB 72 136 - Lancaster Air Scoops
These replacement scoops are precisely hollowed out at the front and are designed for the new Revell kit.
QB 72 138 - Junkers Ju 88 Undercarriage Covers
These are nicely detailed repalcement main gear covers with no ejector pin marks. They will be drop-fit replacements for Hasegawa's kit.
QB 72 139 - Wellington Mk.Ic Late Exhaust
QB 72 151 - Wellington Mk.Ic Early Exhaust
QB 72 137 - SBD 3/5 Dauntless Exhaust
QB 72 147 - Focke-Wulf F 190 D-9 Exhaust
QB 72 148 - Spitfire Mk.V Exhaust
72 149 - Do 24T Exhaust
QB 72 152 - Dewoitine D.520 Exhaust
Quickboost exhausts are always a treat, and these are no exception. Even in 1/72 scale the stacks are hollowed out and weld seams are present where applicable.
The hedgehog stacks on the late version Wellington exhaust are especially impressive.
These will be a luxurious finishing touch for your 1/72 scale models.
QB 72 150 - A-4 Skyhawk Exhaust Nozzle - Late
Well detailed and simple replacement for the exhaust in Fujimi's late Skyhawk kits.
Thanks to Aires / Quickboost for the review samples
