Detail Parts

Hobby Boss seems to be producing almost every version of the Me-262. The upgunned U-5 version is a nice looking kit. However, cleaning up the gun barrels is a pain. Also pains to maintain are the roundness and drilling out the center hole. Quickboost addresses both of these issues.

This is a small set, cast perfectly in a light grey-green resin which contains the two cannons that are direct replacements for the kit parts. They are perfectly round and have the barrel thinned out. It is simple and easy.

Highly recommended.

Thanks to Quickboost and IPMS/USA for the review sample.

Reviewer Bio

Floyd S. Werner Jr.

Building models since the age of 7, I’ve become known for my Bf-109s and helicopters. I currently run Werner’s Wings. I was previously the ‘star’ of the Master Class Model Building Video series. I’ve been published numerous times on various website, including Hyperscale and ARC. My work has been in FSM and Great Scale Modeling 2001, as well as, numerous other model magazines. I’m a published author with my Squadron/Signal Walkaround book on the Kiowa Warrior. My models have continuously won many regional and national awards. My unique model photography gives my models instant recognition for their historical perspective.

I’m a retired from the Army after 21 years of flying Cobras and Kiowa Warriors, including tours in Iraq, Bosnia, Korea, and Germany. I’m also a retired Flight Officer for the Baltimore City Police and flew their helicopters chasing bad guys. I’m currently flying Cobras and Hueys with the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation.

I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart, Yvonne, for 42 years. Our daughters have blessed us with six grandchildren. My passions continue to be his family, friends, helicopters, models and airplanes, especially the Bf-109 and my beloved AH-1 Cobra. My motto has always been - MODELING IS FUN!
