Quickboost has continued to issue sets that make building the Hasegawa A-1 Skyraider easier and with better details. This time around Quickboost presents a set with completely assembled pylons, the centerline, the fuel tanks (2) and the wing pylons (12). The parts are cast in the usual fine grain, gray resin with no defects and very little clean up.

With the plastic kit the wing pylons are assembled from two parts and with the fuel tanks and centerline pylons you’ll have to glue on the sway brackets. The plastic parts have seam lines that have to be removed, possible glue smears to contend with and the fuel tank pylons have punch out marks that have to be removed.

Quickboost has none of these issues and all you have to do is remove the pylons from the casting blocks, a light sanding of this surface and then glue them to the model using some CA. In addition, if you do not hang anything from the pylons you’ll see that the underside has better detailing than the plastic parts.

I can highly recommend this product to any Modeller who wants to detail his Hasegawa Skyraider. I would like to thank IPMS/USA and Quickboost for the chance to review this product.
