Quickboost is a company that specializes in drop-in resin replacement parts to enhance the appearance of your models. Being “drop-in” replacements, it is very rare you need you modify the original parts, hence the “quick” name.
In this case I am reviewing the Night Gun Barrels without pylons for the 1/48 F4U-5 from Hasegawa.
In this particular case the set is a “drop-in” conversion, as you don’t need to modify the original parts but there is no F4U-5 (NF) kit –that I know- without the rocket pylons.
As you can see from the pictures the resin parts have better surface detail plus removal points from the pouring stub are easier to hide than in their plastic counterparts. Also the flash hiders are very delicate, so exercise care when handling. At the same time they will look terrific in a finished model!
I would like to thank Aires/Quickboost and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
