Parts Packaging

Quickboost has added a highly detailed set of resin exhaust pipes for the Hobby Boss 1/32 scale Spitfire Mk.V. They are packaged in the typical Quickboost branded poly bag and are molded on a single casting block. They feature hollow ends and show no signs of flash that would need to be dealt with. They can be removed easily from the casting block with a razor saw blade or No. 11 blade and the cut edge can be cleaned up if necessary with a sanding stick. Because they are resin, they need to be attached with super glue or epoxy cement. Although the package indicates these parts are recommended as easy drop-in replacements for the kit parts in Hobby Boss’ #83205 and #83206 kits with very little adjustment to the mounting tabs, they should work well as detailed replacements for the exhausts provided in the 1/32 Hasegawa Spitfire Mk.Vb and Mk.VI kits.

These detail parts are highly recommended.

My thanks to Quickboost and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review them.
