Thank you to Aires-Quickboost and the IPMS Reviewer Corps for the privilege of reviewing this excellent aftermarket resin details set. The ICM C-45 kit is very nice in its own right, but the replacement engine cooling gills add an eye-catching detail in a highly visible part of the kit.

A single casting plug with 4 replacement engine gills is in the package, molded in medium brownish-gray color polyurethane resin. The application is very simple; use the appropriate Quick Boost engine gills to replace kit parts D35/36 and D24/43. This is nearly a direct drop-in replacement; all you need to do is carefully remove the gills from the casting plug. The gill have very thin edges, warranting special care when removing them from the casting plug. No directions are provided and none are needed. However, be careful to use the correct part. The number 2 part of the plug that replaces parts D24/43 is slightly wider.

The kit gills are molded as solid plugs and do not show any engine details. The Quick Boost gills are open through to the engine compartment, allowing a much more realistic effect.

I highly recommend this detail for the ease-of-use and value for the money. Thank you again to Aires-Quickboost and the IPMS Reviewer Corps for the privilege of reviewing this excellent aftermarket resin set.
