ICM Do-217N-1

The Do-217N-1 is a unique night fighter variant of the Do-17/215/217 series. This set is an easy addition to the ICM model. The set is packaged in typical Quickboost fashion. A resealable package with card stock backing to protect the parts. The parts are flawlessly cast in light grey resin. There are four exhausts and four exhaust ends. The exhausts feature hollow ends with beautiful molded on detail. The four separate front portions have exquisite detail in the front. It is just a simple matter of removing them and adding them to the front of the exhaust parts. One of mine exhausts was slightly out of round but a quick bath in hot water allowed me to straighten it.

Adding them to the kit is simple and easy enough to do. The important thing is to pay attention to what you need to remove. Leave the exhaust stacks on the underside on the part. It would be easy enough to cut them off, so pay attention.

A simple upgrade with just painting to bring them to life is all that is required. I do love the ease of the upgrades provided by Quickboost. This one is no exception. Another great product that will save you from having to sand a join on all four parts.
