Package

Recently I was given the opportunity by IPMS USA to review Quickboost's Messerschmitt Bf 109G Exhaust for the 1/48 Eduard 109G series of kits. One of the first things to notice with this product is the excellent presentation of the packaging with the sealed flap on the back of package to allow for easy access to parts.

Upon removal of the resin exhaust you will notice the great detail that we have come to expect from Aires Quickboost products. The molding on the exhaust is excellent and they come off of the resin block with little effort, I tried a couple of different methods of removal, on the first one I removed with razor saw and the second on I was able to score with a blade and remove easily.

The exhausts are an addition to this kit, when looking at the side-by-side comparison, I’m not sure they are much different than the ones that come with the new tooled 109G from Eduard. They both have great detail even down to the weld seam in the middle of the exhaust tube that is so prevalent on the Bf 109.

This more than likely will come down to a personal preference to the builder if you want to spend the low cost of having resin exhaust or stick to the ones that come in the kit. I would like to thank Aires for a great product and IPMS USA for the opportunity to review this item.
