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 72 156 - Wellington Mk.IC Propeller Spinners



These are simple replacements for the spinners in Trumpeter's 1/72 scale Wellington Mk.IC kit.


QB 72 158 - Beaufighter Undercarriage Covers

(Pictured at the top of the page)

These are beautifully detailed undercarriage covers for the main gear of Hasegawa's 1/72 scale Beaufighter family. The interior detail is remarkable for its depth and authenticity.

Really lovely stuff.

Thanks to Aires / Quickboost for the review samples
