Just like the company name implies, this a quick boost for the exhausts on the old Eduard 1/48 Hawker Tempest kit.

Like the other products I’ve reviewed from this company, they are very well done and easy to remove from the casting blocks. I must admit, I requested these because, during the sanding phase of this project, I broke some of the stock exhaust stubs off. The kit parts and these replacements are installed from the inside before closing the fuselage halves. I was too far along to do it that way so, after chopping out the old stubs and trying to level the plate behind them, this is as close as I could get. There is no doubt in my mind they will fit perfectly when properly installed.

I give this set a ten out of ten for saving me the trouble of drilling out the ends of the stock part. Unfortunately, the kit decals silvered so the project was not salvageable, but at least you get to see the exhaust. Thank you to Quickboost for the sample and to the IPMS/USA review team for the opportunity to use them!
