I love building jets but there are two things that are a pain on most of them and that is getting the ejector pin marks out of the intakes and exhausts. Besides that, almost all jets have covers on them as soon as possible to prevent FOD damage so if you want to pose a parked jet, it should have these covers on them- engines are expensive!
Quickboost has issued two sets each for exhaust and intake covers which are as simple as they sound and yet can make the diorama pop to life. The intake covers are one piece for each side with two delicate handles for each cover that can be detached and added. The difference between type A and B is the raised pattern on them. I trimmed one set, painted them red and tested the fit on my Trumpeter MiG-29. The fit was perfect.
The exhaust intakes are also one piece and cast exquisitely thin- they are delicate too. I mucked up one of the handles but made one from wire in a jiffy that fit perfectly. I painted this red also and tried it on the Trumpeter kits exhausts. Fit was good but tight.
These sets were excellent and are all highly recommended. Check the web for the type you need and you can get a diorama going instantly or just cover those pesky ejector pin marks. What ever the reason, these sets are quick easy and very highly recommended.
My thanks to Quickboost for the samples
