I have said it before and I'll say it again: Quickboost, a part of Aires
from the Czech Republic, produce the best resin sets in the industry.
They are so clean and polished in mid to dark grey that they look like
normal plastic until you notice the casting blocks. They come in their
own resealable plastic bags with a backing sheet giving parts
description, a diagram showing which parts to remove from the casting

Last but not least, is two sets of exhausts for Stukas. 72 074 does not

both sets have all the exhaust stacks drilled out.
Any modeller with some experience in using resin should have no trouble
at all with these sets as they are just simple replacement parts only
requiring the removal of the casting block.
Thanks to Aires for the review sample
