The recent new release by Airfix of the North American P-51D Mustang is a great detail addition to the modeling community for this iconic aircraft.

The Product

This latest release from Quickboost features a complete set of resin Exhaust-Type II exhausts for the P-51D Mustang from the Airfix new mold series of P-51D/K and Mustang Mk.VI kits. The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble-free. The tips of the exhaust pipes are hollowed out.


These are simple drop-in parts that replace your kits parts. The locating stubs are replicated exactly where the kit’s parts are. Since these parts are made of resin, the modeler will need to use a cyanoacrylate adhesives (CA) super glue. If building with minors, exercise caution.


Painting your new exhaust system is simple. Use a simple paint primer – I get mine from the local DIY store and let it dry overnight. Now you have a paintable surface. Whether you decide to go with a simple black, steel, or silver is up to the modeler. I would recommend dry-brushing a lighter color at the end of your stacks to make the hollow ends pop.


This aftermarket kit is highly recommended by this reviewer. It is a simple replacement piece that enhances the builder’s model with minimal effort.

Thanks to Quickboost and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review this very functional aftermarket set.
