Quickboost just keeps adding to their line of resin aircraft accessories. The latest addition is for the Tamiya Mosquito. It is up to their usual standards; molded in grey resin, smooth, seamless and bubble free. One thing of note is that they are really easy to remove from the mold block because of a nice perforation. It only took me a couple of minutes with my saw blade to remove them. Another plus is that the exhausts are bored out, which would be a real pain if you tried to do it on the kit part.

The exhausts that come in the Tamiya kit look alright and would make an acceptable model but the Quickboost replacements are superior because of how they are bored out which makes for more realism, especially in a photo. These exhausts are very easy to install, and they just fit right in.

I highly recommend this product if you want a really superior looking model. Usually replacement parts need some work to get them installed properly but these exhausts pretty much just drop into place. Thanks to Aires Hobby Models/Quickboost and IPMS USA for the chance to do this review.
