Kitset packaging

Quickboost now catalogs a set of detail parts for Tamiya’s 1/72 Focke Wulf Fw 190 A-3 kit that will make it easy for modelers to place the rudder in an off-center position. Set QB 72 311 provides a casting block containing three separate (but identical) rudders. Detail is crisp, with recessed panel lines that match those found on the kit parts (because, it appears Quickboost actually removed that part from the Tamiya kit, added a V–shaped edge to fit against the fin and cast three of the rudders in resin). Since the rudders of most Fw 190s are nearly identical, these parts should be of use on a number of 1/72 Focke Wulf kits marketed by other companies.

The parts are cast in the same soft gray resin material currently used by Quickboost to cast other parts. They can be removed quickly from the casting block with an x-acto knife or a small saw blade and easily fitted to the kit fin after the molded-on rudder is removed. The resin parts should be attached with super glue. These parts are highly recommended to anyone who wants to add a little something to their next 1/72 Fw 190.

My thanks to IPMS/USA and Quickboost.net and Aires Hobby Models for the opportunity to review this set of detail parts
