Do you think that the antenna on any of the Spitfire kits looks a little too thick? If you are like me, do you hate to remove the mold lines? Well Quickboost fixes both of these issues. Molded in light caramel color these little gems are bubble and blemish free. You get three antennas for use on any model of the Spitfire. Adding them is so simple; each antenna has a mounting peg which will fit directly into the kit spot.

Highly recommended

These simple, yet effective, exhausts are typical of Quickboost exhausts, perfectly formed with hollowed ends. The parts are molded in light grey, blemish free resin. The Hs-126 has two very small exhausts and these are easy enough to add to your ICM Henschel.

Highly recommended

Designed for the Hasegawa family of Dora model Stukas, these little gems are typical of the Quickboost line, simple and inexpensive upgrades for the modeler. Molded in light grey resin these exhausts are beautiful and flaw free. There is the aerodynamic cover on the front but then there is the exhausts themselves. They are beautiful. The exhausts feature the weld seam on the outside and the hollow end which makes these priceless. I can never get the ends to thin out. Well, I can but, they never look great or uniform. Quickboost does all the hard work for you.

Highly recommended

The Curtiss-Wright AT-9 Jeep was a twin engine advanced trainer aircraft used by the United States during World War II to bridge the gap between single engine trainers and twin engine combat aircraft. The AT-9 was a low wing cantilever monoplane configuration with retractable landing gear and two Lycoming R-680-8 radial engines.

The folks at Quickboost now offer builders a set of cast resin fenders to enhance the landing gear details of any 1/48 Tamiya B IV or FB IV Mosquito kit. The fenders are cast in the same grey resin used for all other Quickboost aftermarket parts and come on a single casting block. Also typical of other Quickboost resin detail parts, they are crisply molded with no flash to remove and are free of pinholes. They offer better detail than the kit parts (the photo below shows the Quickboost part on the left and the kit part on the right).

They are easy to install. After removing them from the casting block and dressing up the edge with a couple of swipes with a sanding stick, they literally drop in place with no modification required. Because they are resin, they must be attached to the kit parts with super glue.

This set is recommended. My thanks to Quickboost and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
