FirstLook


Quickboost continues its prolific release schedule with a number of recent offerings in 1/32 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:

QB 32 058 - Bristol Beaufighter Porcupine Exhaust for Revell

Pictured at the top of the page, this is a welcome if unexpected replacement for the very plain exhausts of Revell's old but dimensionally respectable 1/32 scale Beaufighter. This is the shorter style of exhaust. Two are included in the set. The ends of each exhaust stub are crisply hollow. Now can we hope for some more accessories for this venerable kit? Cockpit maybe? Please?



QB 32 059 - Junkers Ju 88 A-1 Exhaust for Revell

 

 

Replacement exhausts for Revell's excellent new 1/32 scale Junkers Ju 88 A-1. Exhaust stubs are hollow.



QB 32 060 - F-16A/B Netz Chaff/Flare dispensers and Antennas

 

 

For 1/32 scale Netz conversions.

Thanks to Aires / Quickboost for the review samples
