The folks at Quickboost now offer builders a set of cast resin fenders to enhance the landing gear details of any 1/48 Tamiya B IV or FB IV Mosquito kit. The fenders are cast in the same grey resin used for all other Quickboost aftermarket parts and come on a single casting block. Also typical of other Quickboost resin detail parts, they are crisply molded with no flash to remove and are free of pinholes. They offer better detail than the kit parts (the photo below shows the Quickboost part on the left and the kit part on the right).

They are easy to install. After removing them from the casting block and dressing up the edge with a couple of swipes with a sanding stick, they literally drop in place with no modification required. Because they are resin, they must be attached to the kit parts with super glue.

This set is recommended. My thanks to Quickboost and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
