FirstLook


Quickboost continues its prolific release schedule with a number of recent offerings in 1/32 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

Most are self-explanatory but I have added some notes as appropriate:

QB 32 048 - F-100 Refueling Probe - Type A

 


QB 32 050 - MiG-29A Ejection Seat with Harness

 


QB 32 051 - Messerschmitt Bf 110 C/D Exhaust

One of the surprising aspects of the Dragon Bf 110 C kit was that the large exhaust stacks were solid at the ends. Quickboost has eliminated the need to drill out these big exhausts with their drop-fit replacements.

 

 

The hollow stacks will be very noticeable on the finished model.


QB 32 052 - Bristol Beaufighter Porcupine Exhausts II for Revell

I have a bit of a soft spot for this big old kit. Quickboost's Porcupine (or hedgehog, depending on who you are talking to) will look great on the model. Recently we have seen some beautiful new Coastal Command decals for this kit from Aviaeology, engines from Vector - now who will step up to the plate with a new cockpit? Anyone?

 


QB 32 053 - Messerschmitt Bf 109 G Central Gun for Hasegawa
