Quickboost continues its prolific release schedule with a number of recent
releases in 1/72 scale.
All the sets are perfectly cast in grey resin with
minimal cleanup required. Consistent with Quickboost's philosophy to
date, each set has been designed with a minimum of
parts, and should be straightforward to assemble
Most are self-explanatory but I have added some notes as appropriate:
QB 72 171 - Spitfire VIII Round Exhausts for Hasegawa
Lovely replacement exhausts with flared ends and perfectly hollowed out.
QB 72 172 - A-4 IDF Skyhawk DEFA 30mm Guns
QB 72 173 - Su-15 TM Flagon F Corrected Nose for Trumpeter
Simple, drop fit correction for Trumpeter's nose.
QB 72 174 - T-28 Trojan / FENNEC Engine for Heller
Beautifully detailed one piece replacement engine for Heller's small-scale Trojan. You'll need to add your own push rods and ignition harness (if you are keen and have very good eyesight!)
QB 72 175 - MiG-15 Exhaust Nozzle for Hobby Boss
A simple to install but very effectvive and well detailed replacement for Hobby Boss' exhaust.
QB 72 176 - Su-15TM Flagon-F Pitot Tube
Amazingly detailed "caged" pitot tube made up from both resin and photo-etched parts for experienced modellers.
QB 72 177 - Junkers Ju 88 G-6 Berlin Radome for Hasegawa
The Luftwaffe's late-war FuG 240 radar was covered with a plywood streamlined nose cone. This was quite a transformation for the Junkers Ju 88 G-6. Quickboost has made this conversion extremely easy in 1/72 scale with its one-piece resin Berlin nose.
QB 72 178 - Ju 88 G-1 Gun Barrels MG 151/20
QB 72 179 - Liberator Gr. Mk.V Dumbo radar
Another simple little conversion from Quickboost, this time for the Hasegawa Liberator. What is most impressive about this resin part, apart from its excellent detail, is the fact that it is "scooped out" on the inside to help it conform to the curves of the bottom of the Liberator's fuselage.
QB 72 180 - ETC 500 Rack for Bf 110
Beautifully detailed ETC 500 rack for the bottom of 1/72 scale Bf 110 fuselages.
All we need now is a decent 1/72 scale Bf 110!
QB 72 181 - Ilyushin Il-2 Exhausts
QB 72 182 - Il-2 Stormovik Gun Barrels and Pitot Tube
QB 72 183 - MiG-29A Fulcrum Correct Nose for Italeri
Thanks to Aires / Quickboost for the review samples
