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 Gun Barrels with pylons for the 1/48 F4U-5 day fighter from Hasegawa.

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 you might notice the overall size of the pylon is a bit shorter in the resin part than in the plastic part. I do not know which one (plastic or resin) is closer to the real size –in scale-. Check your own references and make your decision as to which one to use.


I would like to thank Aires/Quickboost and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
