The P-51K is basically the same airframe as the P-51D with a few differences. Other than being manufactured in Dallas Texas, the only visible difference is the cuffless Aeroproducts propeller instead of the “Cuffed” Hamilton Standard propeller. The two blade differences can be seen in a photo from Trumpeters P-51B kit and the Quickboost propeller. This set is designed to work on the Tamiya P-51K/Mk.IV Mustang, which I do not have yet to show what the Tamiya kit propeller looks like.

The propeller set comes in a sealed bag with picture of the parts and what portions to trim. This is the extent of the instructions which is all that is needed for this simple set. The resin is flash free and zero bubbles for a flawless surface. There is a small part of excess resin at the tips of the propeller blade that needs to be trimmed and sanded flush. This excess portion helps ensure all the necessary resin reaches the propeller tip and does not leave a void.

During assembly, you will need to check references on blade angle since there is not a tool to assist in assembly. Other than trimming the pour block, excess resin and blade angle, the assembly is effortless. How Quickboost produces thousands of castings for our hobby, day in and day out, with this level of exquisite detail on all of their update sets is remarkable. I would like to thank Quickboost for this review sample.
