FirstLook


Quickboost continues its prolific release schedule with 12 recent offerings in 1/48 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:

QB 48 258 - Spitfire Mk.XIVe Gun Barrels for Academy

 

 


QB 48 259 - Hurricane External Fuel Tanks for Hasegawa

 

 


QB 48 260 - Junkers Ju 87 Stuka Uncovered Wheels II

 

 

A simple yet fabulous way to customise your Ju 87 D/G Stukas. I love these! The main gear legs and oleo scissors are case deep underneath the flexible skirts.


QB 48 261 - MiG-17F Corrected Ventral Fin for HobbyBoss

 

 


QB 48 262 - F-105 Corrected Ventral Fin for HobbyBoss

 

 


QB 48 263 - Spitfire LF.IXe Exhaust for ICM

 

 


QB 48 264 - Typhoon Mk.Ib Cannon Barrels for Hasegawa

 

 


QB 48 265 - Junkers Ju 88 VS-11 Propeller for Dragon

 

 


QB 48 266 - F-105 Air Scoops for Trumpeter

 

 


QB 48 267 - SB2C Helldiver Air Scoops (although they are clearly undercarriage doors!)

 

 

Yes, the label says that they are air scoops, but I think they will work better as main undercarriage doors for either the original Revell-Monogram Helldiver kit or the Accurate Miniatures re-packaging.


QB 48 268 - Spitfire de Havilland Propeller for Tamiya

 

 


QB 48 269 - Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6 Propeller for Hasegawa

 

 

All Recommended.
